I cannot for the life of me, see why anyone would cut a perfectly good blade just to get it to fit on a trailer. I'm sorry, it's your blade and you get to do what you want. But.... Why not pull 3 pins stand it up in front of tractor and use blade "hump" as a front wheel chock, or show one can design and build a belly blade for a low boy from scratch ( there are many types of light weight blades out there that could be configured to a lowboy easily, the wheelhorse type comes readily to mind ) you know , Look What I Made! Again it's yours. You own it. Thanks for letting me get this off my chest. I feel better now. Maybe I can sleep. Thank you.

It's not "just to fit a trailer", I'm wanting a belly blade for it, so I'm making one!

I picked the blade up yesterday, cut it down 5":

Seems like that would work fine as long as it has a few inches of lift. A hard rubber on top that curls towards the front might help with overspill and protect the oil pan. You probably don't want the material going over the top but off to the side.

Well, if making something work for me ticks so many people on this forum off I don't need to be here!

Your tractor, your equipment.... do what you want with it. I think it looks decent and should serve your purposes just fine!

Don’t worry about what others on this forum think. Like Urbish said, it’s your tractor, do what suits you not them.
There are two ways to get enough Cubs. One is to continue to accumulate more and more. The other is to desire less.

What works for you is what is important. I'm anxious to see what you come up with and seeing pics of it in action. There are far more of us interested in seeing the results of your work than those who are ticked off by it. Yes, you need to be here to feed the creative juices to others.

I've been watching this with interest since you started it. I have a LO-Boy and a blade, I'm thinking with it set up as a semi-dedicated unit it would be very handy for routine driveway maintenance. Please post some pictures when its done. Did you have to make any other modifications other than cutting the moldboard down?

There's one at the top of the page that shows it mounted but unpainted.

Please don’t let the correct police touch a nerve. The rest of us are quite interested.
