Grader Blade...finally!

Recommended Posts

Dadsy98
I missed out on Dutch's grader blade. His order went in a day before my cash came in :( But, RayS fellow member had one for sale. After a short trip of fifty miles home the blade and hitch are resting comfortably. Here's a picture of it after I rubbed some of the rust off the edge:

Because the lift cable is off to the side of the blade center I noticed the blade doesn't set level, the left end likes to dig in more than the right. Do I live with it or is there a work around? Steve

I've got enough slack in the cable when the blade is completely lowered. I was trying to skim the high spots with the blade raised just off the ground level. With the blade completely down I'm impressed with the blade. Stirrups might be nice but right now I think a few visits to an all you can eat pasta joint will improve the blades ability :) Steve

Did you say you traded your seat for that? Actually, that may help you get more leverage with your feet! :o) On my blade there are two holes, each about 6 inches out from the center of the blade. I bolted a small chain to each, and put the cable through the link nearest the center, works well! Good luck! Rob

Rob, I was thinking the same idea, using some chain to adjust the lift point more towards center. I got the seat from the same place Thedaddycat did. These seats seem to withstand the weather better which is a good thing since I have to store the tractor outside ;) I checked my 2110 this afternoon to see how the lift is set up. The lift is on the outside of the frame. That would offset the lift point even more. Will do some more research on that one. Steve

      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
