Dfference in the yellow late model subframe vs. 82 series is the length of the "ears" that hook into the QA hooks on the front of the tractor. Later models were longer due to taller spindles in "Super Steer" axles. If the blade quadrant sits parallel to the ground with the blade down, you are fine......

Snow removal requires FLOAT to be functional.....do not lock out float to move snow. Skid shoes control depth.

Mike, with the blade on the ground, you should be able to pick it up by hand some. Hence, the "float" aspect of it.

That is, unless the lock out pin is installed.

So am I supposed to be running the blade without the float lockout bolt? I have it installed now - I thought I was supposed to have it installed to run the blade in the winter?

Yes that would be good if you could measure that for me Earl. Good point Matt

The tabs that go into the QA are longer on the later blade. Perhaps Earl can also measure the length of those on his correct blade so you can tell which subframe you have.

Assuming the float lockout bolt is not installed and the rockshaft is not rusted together, the blade will float. It is not anywhere near heavy enough to dig into frozen ground to damage it, in my experience.

So how do I tell the difference in sub frames Matt? I am guessing that the older IH sub frames will bottom out on the rock shaft better? I kind of wondered about that with this one anyway??

Yes if you can Earl that would be nice so I can verify if I am doing something else wrong.

Do you guys use your "stop block" on the side of the tractor when using the blade to prevent putting it too low into the ground or do you only rely on the shoes to keep it from digging in so much? I know my unlevel lawn and driveway will take a beating no matter how much I try to keep it from digging in. Boy you find out quick how much of a crappy job was done with levelling lawn before seeding when you run a blade or blower over it in the winter! Gotta do some repairs work next Spring! Certainly would be nice to have some frost in the ground.
