    Tilt is primarily used for ditch work. I personally would not pay $200 more for tilt on that size blade but that is up to you. If you want tilt you may want to get a price on a Woods RB60, they are $600-650 around here. Like Dave said you can adjust your sidelink if your blade does not have tilt. Another thing to take into consideration is will your tractor pick up a blade high enough to tilt it.

    That's the one thing that wasn't brought up on this thread. He has a subcompact, just like I do, and I'm skeptical about a blade with tilt.

    I was looking at the blade that EA showed on here, beautiful blade, just didn't appear that it would work on a subcompact.

    I can tilt my blade . I can't remember how much clearance it had, I think it was 2 or 3 inches. It is hard to tell by the picture.

    How high are the lift arms on your 1026 in the fully raised position to the center of the ball?

    I will prolly just go with the straight blade and not the tilt, I won't be cutting any ditches. I doubt if I will be using the blade that much either, just grading my driveway and what little snow we get. I wish I could find a good used one, but everyone I have seen is beat up.

    I agree, just be sure to take a tape measure, and maybe a square with you. The reviews on the TSC site says that quality control has dropped off and some of the blades are out of square.

    You could do like me and wait for a blade to pop up on craigslist.
