    Snow Blade Help

    I purchased a John Deere 46in snow blade with serial number GX018BD039025 what is the model number? I have an John Deere LA 105. I am looking for something that I can mow with in the summer and then in the winter clean my 100 ft long by 20 foot drive.

    The correct plow for your tractor should look like this. The big lever lifts and lowers the blade. While it's raised you squeeze the hand lever then push or pull to angle the blade. It will lock left, right or center.

    JD also makes a bracket that bolts on the back of the frame. This allows you to hang two 42# suitcase weights on the back for ballast. The extra weight makes a big difference when pushing snow.
    I would also recommend chains for the rear wheels. With weights and chains it's like a little tank. lol

    You are going to want to remove the mower deck before plowing. My L108 was up for sale when I took the pictures. That's why the plow and deck are on at the same time. Unfortunately for him I kept the 2 weights for my new tractor. lol

    The model number is GX018BD of that blade, which is a 46 inch front blade for the Sabre lawn tractors that Deere built in the late 90s and early this century. I'm not sure if it will fit your LA105 or if it can be modified to fit it.

    That's the majority of it. Looks like you are missing the side brackets and pins. If you zoom in on my middle 2 pictures above. You can see the round key rings on the ends of the mounting pins.

    The new pictures are the best I have of the mounting brackets that stay attached to the tractor's frame. Probably why you didn't get them in the purchase. This is one of my pet peeves! Delt with it many times in the bike business. The big tamale is removed and all the little parts (that you 100% need) are discarded or left on the old machine.

    They are what is hanging down on either side of the muffler. The top part of the bracket has a J shape around the front axle.
