outside track mount, angle blade

Post by theshanmand1! » Sun Oct 08, 2017 7:29 am

hello all,
hope all are well.
I haven't been on for a while.
feb. of this year I went over to plow the driveway, and decided, after, that I would start to research finding a angle blade for my crawler, as my Holt blade is not.
to the point, there is a gentleman on CL that is parting a 440, with outside mount blade & manual angle.
from the pics, it looks like his cylinder mount brackets on the blade are much taller than mine, but it looks like the same mounting style.
the blade arm mounts on his roller frames look different than mine. but the pic is not a close up either.
I asked the MFG. of the blade, nothing yet.
how bout it Lavoy, possum, Stan, anybody...
he says it will bolt up to a 420, &,
I realize I need to go look at it, but any info/advice on this would be greatly appreciated as always.

440 should be a 602 blade. Will mount on a 420, but you will need to build mounting plates to bolt the blade to. They are 1" plate the same height as the track frame, and about 2' or so long with the cylinder bracket mounting holes drilled and one large pilot hole. You weld them to the track frame and then bolt the cylinder brackets to them. Somewhere I have a set, but no idea any more where they would be.

Depends on condition, but in the $1000 range I would guess.
