McCormack Deering Blade

Postby ajhbike » Tue Aug 01, 2017 6:26 am

As I have been fooling around with mounting the blade in the belly position, I noticed that the left axle brace appears to be bent. I understand that it has a gentle sweep boomerang shape, but I am referring to the double bend that I have. I looked at the manual and some TM pics and it is hard to tell if it is supposed to be bent. Can anyone shed light on this?

And I am curious as to whether you can install a hand lift for the belly blade and run the front plow with the TC. There are times with a gravel driveway when the belly blade is better than the front blade and visa versa.

What would you connect the rear blade to, to lift it?

Thinking belly blade-hand lift and front blade- TC. No rear blade (although I have one that is on a quick hitch using the TC but wouldn't have it on in the snow).

You'll need to figure out a way to lift the rear blade. The manual rock shaft occupies the same space that the hydraulic one does.

The only way it would work is to mount it on the opposite side I guess. I thought I have seen hand lifts on the right side for 2 way plows...but the dilemma is once mounted then what...it is the wrong side to connect to the lift point on the plow lift arms for the physics to happen.

Back to the original question...How about the shape of the left axle brace? Is it supposed to be that shape or has it been bent?

Take a look at this:

This may help answer your question.

Is the picture from TM showing the left brace (the 1948 unit) the piece shown on my cub?

Ha! So it is bent/shaped. You don't know how close I came to giving it the guys in our shop to straighten. Good thing I paused. Thanks
