I have been having an old Sears spring loaded dozer blade ever since I got my tractor and would like to cut it down and make it into a belly mounted grader. I would like to reuse the transversing mechanism but need to know what the distance is from the hitch points to the blade, how deep the blade should be, and I suppose I need to know the amount of drop I should have.

Nate, someone in government grades country roads?? . Not in Louisiana. LOL. but seriously if I found such a place would they have grader blades that were small enough to put on a B112? As for my dozer blade I tried selling it locally but there is no market. Wes, yes thanks, I had seen that but forgot where...thanks for the link.

How about cuttin a large piece of iron pipe with a torch. 12-18 inch iron culvert pipe should work nicely, go to your scrap steel yard and find you a 36-42 inch piece and make two. maybe have them cut it in two, then just use your angle grinder to clean it up.

A hot water tank will work also but will be lighter than a grader blade.

God i wish i lived closer to you. I would have a hoot getting to see some of the stuff you have. Im trying to upgrade that Sears tractor i got from the scrap yard to take a blade i got from a friend/ Your blade would work without any changes at all.
