Grader blade cutting edge & snow extensions

Postby Lt.Mike » Sun Mar 03, 2019 6:15 pm

Upon reassembling the grader blade to go on my neighbors Cub I realized how worn out the cutting edge is on my tractors plow.
Also when ordering a few parts from TM I asked about the snow extensions they used to sell but no longer list. I was told it was the prior owners of TM that stocked that part. They might consider possibly having some made up in the future but not for now.
I have a great metal supplier nearby where I know they have the material so I’m going to ask if they can punch the square holes. If not I guess I also have a drill and a file. That’s a plan B unless I can find them ready made.
Does anyone know anyone that stocks a replacement cutting edge or snow extension?

Not to my knowledge. There are drawings and a DXF file for the cutting edge in the Member Made Diagrams and Instructions are of the PDF Manuals section. I had the guys at work cut one for me on the waterjet from some scrap 3/8" material. As for the extension, a piece of marine-grade 1/2" plywood served me fine for several years. I even painted it to match the tractor. Once it broke off, I cut another one, match-drilled the holes, and was off and running again in no-time.

I'll have a sketch shortly of the blade extension.
It's 3/16" thick steel, 6" x 54".
Back when Tom & Lynne owned TM Tractor, they had a lot of brochures on the site. The one for the 54/54A(?) showed the blade extension as an option and gave the dimensions.
I think Rudi bought the rights or the actual brochures. I know someone was working with Emilie to see if they could be brought back to FarmallCub.com.

I actually bought a snow extension from TM when they sold them so I have that one to make a copy from. I was wondering if someone else like TM or Steiner sold them but I guess not.
If I get with my local metal place I might get a bunch made up, we’ll see.

When my son worked for a local specialty steel fabricator running their Plasma Cutting Table, he made about a dozen cutting edges for me, complete with square holes.
Prior to that I would have the same vendor make them out of 1/4" x 4" hot rolled steel bar. 20' bar would yield 4 cutting edges.
I also had them make the cutting edges for the IH 100 Rear Grader Blade. 60" long, so exactly 4 out of a piece of bar stock.

I spoke with Ron at TM about a snow extension may be a month ago and he said he did not have them.

He did say he had cutting edges but they were not on the website

Snow Extension;

Holes in factory snow extension are square, but don't need to be. My guess is that IH had a punch setup for the Snow/Grader Blade, Cutting Edge, and Snow Extension and used a square hole for all of them.
