130 going to get a new blade

Mon Jan 10, 2011 1:05 pm

I've been plowing snow at the farm with the 130 for the last three years. But its kinda a pain. It has the 60" blade but with the 14.9x24 tires the back of the tractor is 72" wide so the snow coming off the blade leaves a pile in the center of the rear tire and I loose traction. My friend Scott came over and was watching me plow and said next time I go home take it off and he will widen it. The next day he comes over as said you wouldn't believe what I just found. He found a 7' blade. He said he doesn't know if it will push it but we can cut it down latter if we have to. I need to get a cutting edge for it. But I need new one for the dozer so I may get one for it and use the old one for the 130.

Here it is with the old blade

I finally got tire chains for it this year. And I got them just in time they were $262 for the pair and a week later they went to $262 pr. Sure made a big difference. I am plowing a good 3/8 of a mile of road plus the parking at the trailer barn and shed.
