    Default Re: Rear blade sizing

    So I ended up looking at a few blades but bought a Gill / Woods HBL-96 made in 1996. It has some wear on one side of the moldboard but I can hardface that back into shape if it bothers me. It was alot of steel for a few hundred bucks. Needs paint.



    There is quite a bit of play in the pivot mechanism but nothing looks worn, just a large gap. Is this normal?

    That gap is normal. I have a Woods HBL84-2 and Monroe Tufline GB4-72. Did you get the lift arm pins?

    I didn't get the pins, I have some that I picked up at TSC that look like they will work. All the other pins are there.

    The nut needs to be tightened up some. It is on the backside of the blade and you have to look up under the rear bracing to see the nut.

    I used the blade for the first time after the big snow that we received (16") and the Massey will pull the 8' blade straight (no angle) with a huge load of snow down the drive. It's an awesome setup...

    I need to figure out how to deal with the snow after I pull it into the road, I'm feathering up the 3pt to drop the snow but I've yet to experiment with angle to drop the snow into the banks. The Gill(Woods) HBL-96 was a good buy at $400. I reversed the cutting edge as the one side was worn but it had never been flipped. Perhaps a hydraulic angle is in the future.
