Welcome! As others have said, I'd stick with the blade in the mid grader position. I've used these Cubs for a lot of plowing snow and grading dirt, and the blade in the mid position is the only way to actually grade with a Cub. If the blade is out in front, you need to have the shoes on the blade because all it wants to do is dig, and there's not enough leverage on the system to actually hold the blade up so you can grade. I've pushed several thousand yards of topsoil and gravel with my cubs over the years and always used the mid mounted blade. I graded out about an acre of my back yard, set grade stakes and pushed the topsoil around to re-grade everything. With the blade mounted in the middle, you can hold grade to 1-inch easily. Unless you plan on plowing snow, don't bother with the front mounting position for that blade, you'll just be disappointed.
