Re: #61 blade mount left side

That's what I needed, I think I will get the measurements off the right side as they look identical except for the cylinder mount. Thanks for everyone's help

Re: #61 blade mount left side

Sorry for any confusion I thought I had a 61, it's a # 60. Where do you find the parts diagrams, I enter # 60 blade mts and I get lawn mower blades.

Re: #61 blade mount left side

This hole things a cluster f#$&k. I have a shed at the end of my yard, I took the blade off to do some repairs to the front idler wheel, it's a big hunck of steel that was sitting next to the tractor. I also had a Lincoln ranger on wheels, my atv and my super cub in the same building... And they run...

Re: #61 blade mount left side

My blade doesn't angle, and the mounts on the like don't look like mine. I wonder if mine are home made, it's a mc

Re: #61 blade mount left side

Yes, it's a couple ft long, I think I can use the right side as a template but I am not sure they are the same because the right side has the lift cylinder on it. I believe they should be the same.

#61 blade mount left side

Does anyone have a left side blade mount for a #61 blade ? Or at least a diagram and measure ments so I can make one. Seems mine has walked off. Some scraping tweaker figured they needed it more than me. :evil:

Re: Shock and Awe

I used to work in the oil and gas fields in Northern Pa, we had a bunch of guys from the Fiji islands, some of the nicest people I have ever met, and huge. Saw my first ever pair of 5x fire retardant coveralls. But they didn't do well in the cold, it would be late October and these guys were in the ...

Re: thinking newer truck

I bought my diesel as a toy, it's not stock but it is incredibly fun, I can go play around and run with Camaro's and mustangs, or I can play with the programer and tow just about anything I want. But that being said if you can tow your loaded trailer safely with a half ton gasser, go with that. If y...

Re: thinking newer truck

Decent truck, lots of power and torque, but I have heard of some fuel pump issues. Other than that I don't know too much about them. If you go with a post emission truck, you should look into the delete kits . I am no mechanic but have spent time with heavy duty trucks . Emissions stuff was a consta...

Re: thinking newer truck

Not sure I would go 1/2, that being said I wouldn't go with an unproven diesel either, the 6.0 Ford's need 5000 $ in upgrades before they are reliable, but the have good transmissions and are in well built trucks, I have a Dodge just for the Cummins, but they have issues as well, mostly front end an...

Re: Why

Got my idler back together, (thanks Lavoy for the wheel) When I took the track off, it wasn't as terrible as I thought it would be, swinging hammers in the oil field for a few years helped, but I didn't dream it would be such an s.o.b to get back together. Holy cow. It was 20 degrees an I was sweati...

Re: Why

When it comes to saws, I bleed husky orange, I have had a 390 xp, my 372 xp and a worked over 361. Granted I don't use my saws as hard as you do, they have given me years of trouble free service. But it sounds like the new ones are junk. I am sorry you have so many issues with yours. Might have to j...
