    212 plow attachment

    I got me a plow for $25 yesterday and have a question about hooking it up to my 212. I have a 212 with model/serial number M00212X365627 and it has the electric lift. I want to hook the blade up to move some dirt around and know there are a couple tractor front end linkages used relating to serial numbers so am asking for help. Pictures show my tractor front end lift rod and the 2nd picture is the blades connection point. What I would like to know is what I need to get these two to link up properly so I can raise/lower the blade using my lift. Do I need to just hook them together, get the lift linkage that looks like a huge chain link, the piece that attaches to the frame and the lift linkages, or all of it? Again my model and serial number is M00212X365627

    The small fitting on the end of my electric lift rod is what attaches to my snowblower linkage to raise/lower it but I am not sure if it works on the plow blade.

    I am thinking I need to get the two pieces on the left of this picture (NOT the rod). Help appreciated.....

    I received a PM telling me that all I need is the lift link and the part number is M43021. I was informed this is what allows the blade to go all the way down. I guess they are right but would appreciate confirmation.

    Or you can get a chain connector at tractor supply. Itís slightly shorter then the JD straps, so it doesnít drop the plow quite as far below the plane of the tractor, but I havenít heard any complaints.

    Damn the luck!

    I go and pick the blade up this morning and the guy had found the lift link and one of the two pins. He said $5 and it's yours, so I gladly gave him the $5 and brought it all home. Sure isn't much to the link but I guess JD has to make their profits somehow. This unit had been sitting outside a long time and it took a few sprays of PB Blaster and PB Lubricant but I got it working fine. So for $30 I can do my landscaping without all the backbreaking shoveling I was going to do before I got it.......

    I'm assuming I'll need the lift links for the snow blower as well, or is that controlled by the rod attached to the blower without the lift link?

    $5 is cheap enough, but itís not a separate item, and has no other use except a 43 blade. People like that rub me the wrong way, and Iím not afraid to blow up the whole deal on principle.

    The lift parts on the tractor are a separate item and are used for all front attachments.

    Yah, I know what you mean, but considering he wanted $50 for the plow originally I had no problem paying the $5.

    My "new" 212 might get a #43 snow plow.

    I'm trying to find manual lift instructions, diagrams, and part numbers. Any ideas?

    The blade is old, decent. No part number.

    Any measurements for the links? Length, width, thickness? Hole diameters? Hole dimension center to center?
    You did great, excellent $$$ for the blade and links!
