I wanted to use a loader with a bucket and convert to a blade easily and have dump and angle capability.
Here it is

Makes it look like a skid steer.

I suppose you know what you are doing here. That's a light front axle and although most of the weight is transferred back , that is serious front weight. Best to you with anticipation. We here and other sites know about cracked/ bent frames by over stress. I cannot sit here eating popcorn and waiting for failure. If you run into problems, it already happened.
It is still dang sweet how you mounted it to certain points, reinforced the frame etc.

Here is another picture showing the blade converted to bucket. Five bolts remove and its back to a blade.
