Decals are still pretty good.

Which frame-to-blade hole do you guys use? Does it make much difference?

I use the center holes. The seller of the blade had it mounted improperly. The pieces of angle iron welded to the back of the blade are actually curved and the holes are used to tilt the blade, although there is enough play in most used blades to accommodate mounting the way the seller had it mounted.

Skids, blade extension, boomerang, and even the rear mounting bracket are all there. All of those were missing from mine when I got it. Good find.

Hi,
Below is the Cub 54 Blade owner's manual. It has lots of info about the blade.
You don't use the hand lift that it shows, if you have Touch Control. :)
