    Default Back blade with angle hydraulics

    Anyone out there make a rear blade with only hydraulic angle adjustment? I do not need the tilt option etc... checked out Everything Attachments and to my surprise they did not

    I think you can buy hydraulic blades without the hydraulics (manual adjust), then add what you want. They have something like a top link, or pin adjustable stabilizers, or ratcheting link in place of cylinders.

    For example:

    RB26 and larger Land Pride blades:

    "Optional hydraulic angling kits are available."

    Are you wanting to make blade from scratch? Or buy a used standard blade and then modify? I've got a zillion pics, I'll dig thru them and see if I can find some that might help your creative juices get flowing.

    As I am sure many have done, I had two attachment points welded on my blade into which slides a pipe with the connection for the cylinder that allows for either equidistant angling or severe angle to one side plowing. Was quick and fairly cheep to set up. The hoses and cylinder do add up but works great in the snow. I have not tried the cylinder in the dirt.

    I've never saw that done before. I would refrain from using it in dirt if you value it for snow work. Normally the table is extended with an area to fasten the cylinder end to. But in your case, the way your table is designed that's not an option.

    Do you already have a tilt cylinder ?

    You can buy Landpride's RB with or without hydraulics on any or all of its functions: angle, tilt, offset, and/or tailwheel.

    I think what he's saying is that he has no need for the tilt option and doesn't want to pay extra for it.. I'd like to have the offset capability, for my use.

    I'd agree with ovrszd, my Land Pride blade got bent up pretty easily. I've reinforced it, and it's held up well ever since. The problem I had was that the cylinder attachment point was on top of the mouldboard, which wasn't strong enough to stand the force the tractor could put into it. The pivot table is much stronger.

    I'm not knocking your gear, 93mustang, just saying that you might have problems with bending if it hooks into anything solid.

    Adding hydraulic angle to mine was a learning experience, I bent one cylinder rod like a banana, and also ran the risk of blowing hydraulic lines apart because I was using too small a cylinder with no crossover relief valve. I still don't have the relief installed (read as too cheap to spend the money!) but I did re-think the attachment points and changed the cylinder to something stronger.

    Pics...

    -dsc00677-jpg

    Original cylinder was a 2x18, you could overextend it when right angling, which was how it got bent. The new one is a 3x10, full extension and retraction = roughly 30 degrees of angle each way and no risk of damage. I had to re-position my attachment points to make it work. The bend in the 2x18 rod is visible in this picture.
    -dsc00664-jpg -dsc00681-jpg

    The reinforcing plate on the right side links the upright attachment for the cylinder to the pivot table, so far I haven't bent it. I'm a fairly careful operator, forcing something to do something it's not designed for gets expensive quickly!
    -dsc00680-jpg

    I added adjustable skid shoes for winter use, they work well on a gravel driveway. I like to park it with the cylinder fully retracted for protection, but it's not well supported that way since the blade is angled. It usually sits half extended..
    -dsc00678-jpg

    This is the original configuration that the blade had when I bought it used, it didn't hold up well.. the front attachment point was in the wrong place, the cylinder was too long, and the rear attachment point was too flimsy.
    -dsc00239-jpg


    The blades that come with pre-fitted attachment points for a cylinder are a great idea, at least they're designed from the get-go for that purpose. Having had power angle, I'd never be without it again. Jumping on and off the tractor to change blade angle gets old in a hurry.

    Nice set up, I've been thinking about adding a angle cylinder to my old woods blade and this gives me some ideas.

    Good stuff Chilly. I think that'll give the OP a lot of information he's looking for. You're experiences (failures) will also give him an idea of the forces involved with a hydraulic setup.

    I'm like you, I try to not abuse my equipment, but I also try to over build so I won't have failures.

    I also like that you used an "eyelet" cylinder so you can grease the swivels.

    If you don't mind, I'm going to save these pics for future reference? Good stuff!!!
