Freebie! I picked up a blade this morning

Recommended Posts

This week is our "big trash" pick up week. My neighbor (whom I've never met) a couple of doors down had a front blade, mount and all, sitting our for the large trash pick up. Needless to say, when I seen it this morning on my way to work, I did a U-ie and turned around and put it in my truck. I looked it over when I made it to work. I have no idea what it fit. It has a manual left hand life. It has a right hand rod that turns and releases a catch lever allowing angle positioning from the seat. The cutting blade is trashed, almost looks like the aftermath of a cutting torch. So with some ingenuity, I have a free front blade for my AC917. Yeah!

My neighbors are all too stupid to buy machines that are worth anything. Just murrys and MTD's and Troy builts and other CRAP. I cant score any good finds. I need to make a pilgramage to WI with about $2000 and pick up some stuff!!!!

Well, good news and bad news. The good news is the blade was free. It is a Sears, which doesn't bother me, it seems to be decently made, heavy enough not to bend like a piece of sheet metal. The bad news, my suspicion was right, someone used a torch and cut off the cutting edge, right through the center of the four square holes for carriage bolts to hold the cutting edge on. So, it will take some work to get it to mount to my AC917, and some work to mount a new cutting edge. Oh, not to much to ask for free.

        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
