    54" Front Blade

    Are all John Deere (newer) 54" front blades created equeal? I have the opportunity to purchase a 54" front blade for my 455. The blade was originally purchased for an X485 tractor and carries a serial number of MO54FBX070554. It is the blade only, with no quick hitch. Does anybody know if a newer 54" blade is compatible with a quick hitch for a 455?

    Thanks in advance!

    I believe they are compatible, but hopefully an expert is along soon..........

    Thanks for chiming in guys.

    Going to look at the blade this weekend and hopefully buy it. Blade was used once or twice and looks new.

    Now the hunt begins for a quick hitch!

    Check Craigslist in Maine. There have been frequent ads posted from someone in the Bangor area who had several quick hitches etc. starting at $250. It's quite a hike up there, but may be worth it.

    I have had the 54" blade for 4 years now, 3 with my ex-2305, and this season with my new 2320. It is a good blade and hitch although now that I have the 2320 I wouldnt mind it being bigger. I have used it for snow and for grading, it works well. I did replace the factory skids (I have the originals if anyone needs them) with round skid pads made by Swisher. I plow snow over my lawn to different buildings I have, The round pads seem to offer more "Floating Protection" over the grass.

    Hi Pete,

    The Swisher pads sound interesting. Are they a direct bolt on repacement for the 54" blade or is there some fab involved? Where did you get yours. When your grading, do you typically remove the pads?

    They fit right in. I bought mine at Tractor Supply off of a Demo Model Plow for a 4 wheeler. I have since contacted Swisher to get spares, they are almost $80 with shipping. I have not ordered them yet. I only paid 1/2 that from Tractor Supply.
    I will post a link when I find it. Yes I take them off when grading, I also lock the plow springs, make sure you remember to unlock it before plowing, I bent my skids this year leaving the blade locked. I straightened them but it wasnt easy.
