I know you did. I have those pics saved. No actually I haven't figured out exactly how it mounts. It's not high on my cub list right now but while it was "on topic" I thought I'd throw it out there again.
I'm pretty sure the front bars that pivot mount to the lift on the tractor. It's the rear bars that are stationary that get me. Not sure where they mount. I will get it mounted one way or another. I'm a "by the book" sort of a guy. I'm a commercial pilot so it's kind of drilled into my head. I like to go by the book if possible before I start cutting and chopping. I'm hoping that one day someone else who has one of these things will post up and have some pics of how it's mounted. Right now, as far as I know, I'm the only one with one of these things- A "DALY" belly blade that is.
Jim, It would be nice to see a complete parts diagram somewhere. The only thing I noticed was the arms on yours. The bent ones should be flipped and put on the top. I have a bunch of pics of different ones so I can build one, try to use the best features I see from all of them. May start it this spring.
Jim, any chance you could take some more photos of that belly blade, from different angles and such? Perhaps with more views someone here might figure it out. If no one figures it out at least we'll have more photos to look at!
BTW, sorry if that last post came across as being harsh, I didn't intend it that way.
I too have searched everywhere for info. on A.B. Daly company and have not had much luck. Just isn't much out there. One day I'll run across someone who has one of these blades and all in the world will be well.
It will be a day or so but I'll take some more pics and post them up.
JIM T. - Kraig's got a good idea there....take a couple pic's from different angles. Ken already did My next suggestion! I'll have to try out His link in a minute. I think there's some sort of bracket that bolts onto the footrest brackets for those rear lower arms to pin to that You may not have....most often those get left on the tractor by mistake. Looks like a nice piece of equipment.
KEN - That pull-behind blade looks nice too.
KENDELL - Even with a short wheelbase CC the belly blade really smooths loose material really well. I prefer a manual lift for them since I can react quicker than most hyd. lifts plus I can add "Body English" to one or both ends to make them scrape or dig. I leveled about a dozen single axle dumptruck loads of fill dirt 20 yrs ago this spring around My Father-in-law's new swimming pool. I didn't have chains or AG tires on the back of the 72 but it really worked Great leveling loose dirt. It takes a couple passes to make the ground flat or level but it's just more "Seat Time!"
