    54" front blade

    UN-boxed my new blade yesterday, and noticed that it only has 1 "J" pin on the right side. I'm thinking it should have one on the left side as well. Am I wrong in thinking that. My installation hit a snag because no front attaching kit came with it, so will be about next Wednesday before I get the parts in for that. Click image for larger version.

    Mine only came with one pin. I doubt I'll ever even use that. That pin locks the blade so that the trip function doesn't work. I guess if you are using your blade for dirt it would get used but I can't see any reason for me to ever use it. I just push snow.

    Thank you for clearing that up for me. I thought a piece was missing. I'll have to tell the dealership that I don't need the one he ordered today.

    Beautiful beaches, moderated summer heat and lake effect snows. Right where I want to be.

    Plow Trip Pins

    You definately want the plow to be able to spring forward and "TRIP" when you encounter something and it doesn't take much. I always position my (2) J pins as far away from the holes as possible as I have had the pins seat themselves when you are banging into snow piles. I fractured my thumb and my wrist when I accidentally hit something and the plow did not trip. I make it a habit to check mine each time I get on to plow.

    When that happened, the tractor stopped so abruptly that my knees slammed into the back edges of the hood slamming the entire hood assembly forward and I sheared all of the hood mounting bolts off inside the hood where it attaches to the hood mounting and pivot bracket. That one incident ended up costing me about $12,000 in medical bills and about $350 in tractor repair bills. Live and learn.

    And of course, I was "helping a neighbor" in her driveway but I never told her because she would have felt terrible. Her driveway is very cracked and crumbling and I will tell you it didn't take much for that abrupt stop to not only really hurt, but damage my pride as well.

    Wearing that cast on my wrist and arm for 8 weeks made plowing more difficult, but it was one of those incidents where it happened so quickly you are so surprised and not really sure what happened at first. Definately keep that plow trip mechanism so it will function. Block the pin out if necessary.
