Snow blade additional length... will it park?

Postby MikeEyre74 » Sat Oct 26, 2019 8:33 am

Any idea how much extra length a front blade adds to a Numbered machine? I’ve never had mine on and I wonder if it’ll fit in the garage or not. But without putting it on I can’t tell... anyone got a rough measurement?

Look at the last picture in this thread:
viewtopic.php?f=31&t=105651&hilit=bushing&start=15
You can see where the rear of the lifting frame assembly pins to the mounting frame assembly. It is about in line with the engine governor. Measure front-to-back on the lifting frame and blade. Measure that far forward from where the big pin would be in the frame. That will get you within a few inches of where the blade ends up.

From the center of the front hub bolt to the attached blade cutting edge is approximately 30". That could vary slightly depending on the vertical pitch of the blade.

Yes. Also the axial pitch. Thanks for the measurement.
