can I or can't I, or Should I or Shouldn't I

Leave the front snow blade on and then mount the Woods 59 mower. Maybe I can't because of the hyd. lift? ( one goes up, one goes down)

I'm pretty sure the brackets for the blade will interfere with the mower. I'd want the weight off of the front of the tractor anyway.

Will the mower clear the arm that comes back to the torque tube from the blade.

The blade attaches to the frame with 3 pins. Remove them and tie up the bottom spring arm. That shoud give you enough clearnace and make steering easier by removing weight.

It's been several years since I used a 59 inch Woods, but I'm pretty sure that on it the deck came up when you pushed the lift forward, and pushing forward also raises the front blade.
