 backblading snow

Here in NE PA we had our 1'st snow. I attached my old backblade on the JM-180. Put my new double ring logging chains on and put it to work. As I have a stone driveway with small ups and downs the blade really wants to dig in to the stones as the tractor tilts to follow the bumps.

I welded two 2 inch black iron "T"s on the back of the blade and put my old myers plow shoes on. After a few weld breaks they stayed attached but now I get 2 to 3 inch snow left on the pass. I am pulling the blade, not pushing


Is there a better way to get closer to the stones without the feet pods?

it depends on the quality of your rear blade. Probably all blades angle, but better ones tilt as well and really good ones offset too. I unpin the tilt setting and the blade follows the ground no matter where the tractor tilts. Some tractors also have releases on the 3 point arms to allow some ground contour following, but it does not work as the blade tilt. I also use the blade in the opposite direction it was meant to go and it does not dig in. Some people also slit a pipe the length of the blade and slip it over the cutting edge.

I like the idea of taking off the top link. I would think the blade would no longer dig in. I wonder if it would ride up the snow though. Also, would the blade lift work, and the blade go up with the 2 point. I'll give it a try next snow.

Of course not. It will just pivot there on the lower lift arm balls. And if you try to over-extend the lift radius to get the blade off the ground, good chance you'll tear up the lift piston gasket and wiper.

A lot of that unwanted movement may be due to maladjusted lift stabilizers - the turnbuckle things that connect the upper and lower lift arms. They don't "float" well until you give them some length.

I never pull snow with a rear blade anyway, preferring to reverse the blade and push it. But the "float" factor is important regardless of the direction of force.

Greg;
I just gave it a try. I disconnected the
top link. The 2 inches of snow pulled
great. It seemed to sin down to the
stones without major digging in.
I have to re-attach the TL if I want to
back up to raise the blade tho.

My arms seem adjusted like it was for
the 4 ft brush hog with the arms adjusted
to the closest hole.
I have the adjust left right pins in
stationary holes so the blade has less
side movement.

I guess when I get more than 9 inches I will
have to put the TL on in order to take
the top part of the snow. Lets hope I don't
get that much snow at one time.

Wrong stabilizers, you're talking vertical - I said horizontal; specifically the turnbuckle things between the LOWER and UPPER lift arms. If they're drawn up to short, you'll pull the blade off the ground every time the front tires hit a dip. If you can get the blade to float better, you can keep the toplink connected.

Disconnecting the toplink will also transfer its share of the shock load directly to the blade's link pin. The result is generally bent and/or egg-shaped index holes.

It's a touch late now, but I bladed the driveway this year before winter hit so I wouldn't have so much unleveled spots for the rear blade snow removal. It's helped me, but I also have resigned myself to cleaning gravel out of the grass in spring.

I have decided to make/get a
shackle extender to add to
the top link. Like a big bycicle
chain link. Or I can use a few
links of chain in series with the
top link.
This way the blade will float without
down pressure but I can lift the three
point when I need to back up.

Sound reasonable?
George

Two things for the folks that use a Rear Blade for snow.

First, the now infamous Murphy Pipe™ works quite well on the cutting edge of a Rear Blade as well.

Secondly, for almost ANY 3pth implement, a short piece of chain can be substituted for the upper link. In fact with some implements, like a bush hog, it actually works better.

Best of luck.

I agree with Murf on the chain. I have seen some mowers come that way.

However be very careful with such when using a PTO shaft. I jammed the PTO on a tractor doing so when the cutter picked up higher than expected pushing the pto shaft into the PTO on the tractor bending a fork iside the transmission.
