    If that will spin 180 deg it could be wonderful for pushing snow around as well...

    Not a bad idea....unless you have to frequently change it back and forth

    That looks pretty easy to change. Can you just rotate the shaft 90*, lift it out, then set it down in the other swivel the same way ? If you can I like it.
    Mine is a pain to offset. Five bolts, 2 above and 3 below. And a fair amount of grunting.

    I kind of like the ingenuity. As a "poor mans offset" it works pretty well. Alot of the implements I still use have been modified at some point. I would find a use for it. For those who have power offset blades it would definitely make appreciate the power of hydraulics. Haha.

    I would almost bet that you could just turn it 90 degrees and slide it over to the other mount. they look close enough that the 3 point frame would would be able to travel into the mount before fully disengaging from the other one. you would just have to support the blade upright before doing it.

    If the distance is enough, you might even leave it attached, spin the blade 90 degrees before lowering it and move the tractor forward/backward to change offset. Of course, that would only work if the offset would then allow you to spin the blade back into position.
