Perhaps beef the pivot area up like this, using some of the cut off material. Some welding would be required.

Like this, the red part would be the Blade subframe. Keep in mind that some spacers would be required to keep the blade subframe centered on the pivot rod. Might be a good idea to use some of the blade subframe that was cut off on each side to beef it up.

Scott W.- Before you buy the all thread, I've got a length of 15/16 shaft stock that might work better for what you're thinking about. If it's not too big. This isn't a "for sale" add, just something I'd be willing to donate to the project, as I'm only about 130 miles out, and we could figure out how to get it to you, if it'll work. (Enid)

I thought at one time I seen a PDF parts brake down of this blade. Do you know where it is?

Do you think some all thread would be strong enough for a pivot point? And how will you mount the blade frame to a sub frame?

Move Post (Moderator/Admin Only)View Post/Check IPDelete PostEdit PostBy Kraig McConaughey "Keeper of the Photos" (Kmcconaughey) on Wednesday, November 07, 2007 - 12:41 pm:

No, at least not without some modification to it to make it fit onto, in your case, a Wide Frame blade subframe. That MTD blade is one that my neighbor gave to me. I plan on altering it to fit onto a Narrow Frame subframe that another friend gave to me. Here's how I plan to modify mine.

Cut the frame at the red line.

Drill holes through the frame for a pivot rod noted by the black line. This will mount the blade frame to the subframe. I will also have to add some spacers or brackets of some sort for rigidity and to keep it centered on the tractor subframe.

Add a lift bracket, yellow part, note that the light black line on the yellow bracket is where the lift bracket would bend up the black dot is a hole where the lift rod would mount.

That is it. Will it fit on a 782 made by MTD?

Scott, sounds like it could be from a Cub Cadet riding mower or other perhaps another brand. Does it look anything like this MTD blade?

I will try to get a photo of it. I do know it does not look like the two below. The frame looks similar but there are no mounting pins and there is no lifting mount. As I understood from the seller it hooks up to the hangers that raise and lower the mower deck. This is how it works. All help appreciated.

Both of the blade photos I posted below have a single spring and latch handle in the middle to angle the blade. Not sure what you mean by this: "And it has two bars that come from the top back to the tractor." A photo would sure help....

Has anyone seen a front dozer blade with a single spring and a latch in the middle to turn the blade right or left? The man I got it from said it would fit a Cub Cadet. I do not have a camera or I would post a pic. It looks to have a wide sub frame on it. And it has two bars that come from the top back to the tractor.

Narrow Frame Dozer Blade subframe:

Note that on this one the mounting PINS face inward and on the Wide Frame subframe I posted below, the pins face outward. Of course there is also a bolt on version that looks like this one WITHOUT the mounting pins and one that only fits the Original.

As far as the blade itself goes, it's the exact same one for both WF & NF. Just a different mount.

What does a "Narrow Frame" dozer blade look like? Thank you, you are clearing a lot of things up.

Scott, the #40 box blade is a rather rare and desirable attachment, if you have one please DO NOT modify it!!!! You should be able to sell it for enough money to buy a proper CAT-0 box blade or a sleeve hitch box blade and an A-Frame sleeve hitch adapter and perhaps have some money left over!

When you wrote "dozer blade" I assumed you meant a front mounted blade. If so, there are "Narrow Frame" and "Wide Frame" dozer blades. The 782 is a "Wide Frame" so you will want to look for a dozer blade with a Wide Frame mounting frame. The front portion of the blade is nearly the same for both versions. Here is what the wide frame subframe looks like:

The front dozer blade will work on a 782 IF you have the correct subframe.

What are you referring to? And is there any way to modify the #40 box blade to work on a cat 0 3point? Thank you for your responses.

And just so we are on the same page, here is what "an old Cub Cadet box blade" AKA a #40 Cub Cadet box blade looks like.

Now, if by "an old Cub Cadet box blade" you are referring to a Brinly or Agri-Fab brand box blade that is most likely a sleeve hitch mount and it would fit onto a CAT-0 3 point PROVIDED you have an A-Frame sleeve hitch adapter. Here's what an A-Frame sleeve hitch adapter looks like.

What is the diff. in CAT-0 3 point and the Cub Cadet 3 point?

Will an old Cub Cadet box blade work on a newer 782 with a 3 point? How about a dozer blade?
