Had a bricklayer friend replace the angle iron over the window of the wife's garage to correct a sagging problem. Left me with a six ft. piece of 4inX4in angle and an idea. Spent my afternoon building myself a new implement. Still have to pick up mounting and angle control pins and do one more little fab job before it is ready for paint.

8D Drilled the angle control holes today. Made two more brackets and spacers to weld on. Added another lift link. Now I have a mid mount and a rear grader blade all in one. Just trying to decide on yellow or black paint...Dave

Excellent job, Dave. You will love using it as a mid-mount grader. As a rear grader blade . . . prolly not so much; especially without down pressure. I don't use my rear blade for anything besides spreading loose dirt or gravel around. For leveling and smoothing the driveway, etc, the mid-mount grader works soooooo much better.

Awesome fab work Dave! Your making me "jones" for some project time. The dual mounts are a great idea.

You can always weld a couple rods on it to stack a few barbell weights on it for rear grading if needed. I may copy that, to use an old off-brand blade I have sm01

Nice job...
