I got my 140 with the fast which but the bail assembly bolted to the underside of the platform. Installing the rod and using the other TC lever increased my box clearance a great deal

I do have that and it certainly makes a difference. That’s a good looking tractor, by the way

I am going to get out and reconfigure the lift Lanks. I appreciate that suggestion and it looks like it might get me a little bit of increased clearance. If nothing else, I learned that there is actually a float mechanism back there!

When you only have 9 horsepower you need to know the names of all of the ponies!

I just got in from moving some snow with my new 6 foot blade. I have not yet made the additional adjustments to gain additional lift height but add this .7 inches of clearance between the bottom of the blade and the ground was adequate. Here are my observations moving from the 5 foot blade to the 6 foot blade: number one. The additional height of the moldboard makes a huge difference in keeping the snow on the blade. Number two. The extra foot of width makes a huge difference in efficiency. Number three. The new blade has one additional hole for pivoting left and right and this is a big help. Number four. The 140 is an absolute beast moving snow. I had to clear some 2 foot drifts at the bottom of my driveway and the tractor barely slowed down in third gear. With adequate weight on the back with the tires loaded and chains, the thing is virtually unstoppable! I do prefer my LS MT7 101 With heated cab and 8 foot snowblower for decent snowfall, but the 140 is actually a lot of fun! Thanks for all the feedback that really helped me understand the set up and gain additional height. When it warms up a bit I’ll make the additional adjustments that were recommended

using lower holes gain height but reduce lifting power! -- Shouldnt matter in your case as your blade is not that heavy.
