Jace, Dutch special ordered them from a supplier near him. That said if you have access to your local road crew you could take their old plow cutting edges and weld them together. Since you stated you had someone to make a hitch, making the grader blade should not be to difficult. I think others have taken an off brand snow plow and cut it down to fit. The key is the height, too tall and you can't raise the blade. I have one and it works great. I use it to maintain my half mile private road and driveway. Rick.......

Hello, Actually Dutch had a set of plans and brought them to a local machine shop and had them cut the grader blade from 1/2 inch plate steel. Dutchs' design is different than the stock grader blade. He has a scarifing edge on one side and a straight blade on the opposite side. jh

i bought one of dutch's blades when they were first available. first implement i got for my bare bones Big Ten. my first impression was that it was a casting. i just ran out to check. it's not. it's flame cut to give it the serrations on one side. nice neat cutting job, most likely computer controlled but maybe template. this blade usually hangs off the front of my B1. it takes time but little effort to spread a truckload of dirt. have the original simplicity dirt/snow blade but have never put it on the tractor. the dutch blade does the job so well. (i tried to buy part of dutch's spare parts legacy but could not connect with his daughter. darn!)
