Heres what I did with the blade quick attach.

It takes 1 min. to put the blade on and off...
plus it will lift the tractor front off the ground if I want.

I need to get some scaled down 1468 decals and the black with white International for the side of the hood and a black stripe over the hood.

Mike,

If you are wanting to be "accurate" you will want to make it a 1568, they didn't make 1468 black stripe tractors.

Of course, 14hp Kohler would be a reason for 1468, but it would be a one off.....

I like the blade lift cylinder idea. I'm going to look into for my 2072. I really don't like that the blade is lifted by pushing on the lift rod on a Super. It really puts alot of strain on the QA, the bolstered lift rod I had to make, and the lift bracket at the rockshaft itself. So much that the Haban manual shows an extra bracket to tie that "lift" lug to the mower deck lugs in an attempt to distribute some load.

Your plan does away with all that.

Aron you need to split the aux hyd and put a set of couplers on the left side for the tilt like the green tractors.greenthumb.gif

Aaron,

What are you doing about float? It will be very difficult to maintain steering with the blade angled if it doesn't float. Great for cutting packed snow and ice, but a hindrance when plowing out long runs....

Steve,
Good point. Never thought of that. Wonder if the bracket on the blade could be slotted to allow the blade to float? Thinking out loud......dunno.gif
