    Default Rear Blade for JD 5303

    Attached is a 7' blade I found for a reasonable price. It swivels but doesn't tilt. Any opinions welcome.

    You gonna move snow with it and an occasioal pile of dirt? Or would you be needing to do something that requires it to swivel? The links you posted arent working for me

    The intended use would be grading roads and maybe establishing ditches.

    Tried reattaching.

    I have been unsuccessful in attaching the picture file. Here is the link to it online,
    John Deere 3 Point Blade Reduced . May have to copy and paste the link if the hyper link doesn't show.

    Curious the thoughts on how important the tilt function is and if the 7' width would be sufficient for the 5303. If buying a new one, probably would lean toward an 8' unit.

    There was not a picture on the link. How wide is your tractor? When you angle the blade you want it to be wider than the tractor. The tilt function is nice for ditch work.

    I have the same tractor. That 7 footer looks like an awfully good deal, but I'd wait until you found an 8 foot blade. You've got plenty of tractor for it.

    With no pictures and only $250 I'd be suprised if it is a heavyduty enough of a blade for your tractor.

    For ditching, I think you are going to want Tilt AND offset. Not sure what your budget is, but everything attachments just came out with a 6-way blade that will angle, tilt, AND offset. Would be a good match if you can swing the pricetag. Everything Attachments Xtreme Duty Tractor Scrape Blade

    And even if you do find a good used one heavy enough for your tractor, 8' wide, and having tilt and offset, it aint gonna be cheap. At least not $250 cheap.

    Will try posting picture a little later from a different computer. File would go all the way through upload and then show error.

    The price was more or less driving the inquiry. As far as actually NEEDING one....probably don't. Have made do without one for years. Would purchase forks and grapple before paying retail on a blade that would be seldom used. Guess thats why I would consider the 7' versus the preferred 8'.

    If I am wrong and it is a HD blade, you cant go wrong. But I fear that for the price, it is an awfully light duty blade and in short order you will be left with a $250 peice if scrap metal worth $40.

    Do you by chance even remember a model #??
