Need help Identifying Wheel Horse Blade

Recommended Posts

I picked this up a couple months ago and haven't figured out what it fits. It is not like most Wheel Horse blades. The ones I've seen on ebay attach at the rear of the tractor with some long bars. This ones probably about 42." Model # BDR 385 Serial # 218801.

Any information is appreciated. Thanks.

Most of the older horizontal shaft stuff had a much wider and longer frame for the plow mount. I'm guessing either newer style, or for the smaller vertical shaft engine models. I know that doesnt help much, but it might be a start.

That is a Wheel Horse blade! I have one just like it that I modified to fit My ACs and my 61 Wards. It came off of a small horizontal shaft Wheel Horse tractor. Don't know the year or model number. I was given the blade, but the guy wouldn't sell me the tractor. There are two plates that mount to the short pivot shaft on that hitch and these plates bolt to the front of the wheel horse frame. Your setup doesn't show these plates. The flat bar attaches to the bottom of the hitch just below the pivot shaft. That bar gues under the tractor and attaches to the lift shaft.

      folowing  this from a link at the downloads.  I just rescued an AC 920 with the lambodini diesel. I can' t download  yet .  Where did you find the PDF copy you posted. . I would like to figure out how to adjust the injection pump. 
      I assume it's a bosche, correct

        Over a year ago, you answered a question I had about the tool bar for my FDT. In your reply dated Dec 31, 2019  you said the spacer, part #16, goes in the bar to allow for up and down depth adjustment. does this mean the bolt has to be tightened at whatever depth desired or does the bolt slide up and down, allowing the lower hitch to free float?
         If it is tightened so the lower hitch and the bar are rigid, then is the depth to be controlled by the shoes? Or by the lift handle?
        Is there any kind of user directions for the tool bar? The Outdoor Power Manual basically shows how to assemble the bar but not how to use it
