    HOw to get a 54" Blade from a 425,445,455 to work on 1023e?

    Looking at a 54" 4 way blade and quick hitch that fits a 425,445,455.
    I have a 1023e.
    It looks like I would need a new quick hitch (BLV10159) , hydraulic angle kit (LVB26108) and an attaching support kit (LVB10160).
    Can anyone confirm that?

    If so, I will not bother getting it as buying the whole thing to just get the blade wouldn't make sense. But if it gets me close then I will pick it up.

    I have a 445 and a 1026R and use the 54" blade on both. You do need to have the Quick Hitch specific for the tractor so you will need to get a new 1023 Quick Hitch. The angle kit can be used on both if the hoses from the 445 are lone enough. In my case they wern't long enough so I had a couple of extension hoses made. It is a pain moving the angle kit back and forth from the 1026R to the 445 and back as required so the blade is used mostly on the 445 and the Snow Blower on the 1026R though both can be used on either tractor.
