I just bought a simplicity snow blade . does it mount on the front of the front axle or the rear of the front axle. there maybe something missing possibly a bracket. the mounting I have is behind the front axle but that wont let the blade lift as it hits the bottom of the hood. does anyone have good picture? regards campbell

Campbell Welcome to the club You have it mounted in the right place. What you have maybe an older hitch. What you will have to do is rework the arm where the lift rod goes. Just have it cut off and reweld it back on. The older ones slanted back. The ones for the newer tractors are straight up. Every thing else should be the same By what you say I think this is the one you have

This what the one you should have looks like

Sometimes I have seen where people have taken a hitch for the older Broadmoors and taken the rear half of the hitch off and tried to put the front half with the blade(which also has the vertical upright lift bracket) on a bigger tractor by mounting to the front set of hole sin the axle. Won't work on the rear set of holes because the irons do not extend back far enough and have no vertical tabs welded on.

It should also be moved out to the side about 2" as well especially if the hitch is to be used on a 900/7100 series or it still can hit the hood when fully raised. I have converted a few of these .....

If you modify your hitch as shown below, the same hitch can be used for a front blade and a belly mount grader blade.
