Hi All, I'd like to build a sleeve hitch grader blade, 42" to 48" and n eed a couple of measurements 1: how long is the hitch from where it attaches to the sleeve hitch to the blade pivot, 2: how high is the blade itself? If anyone has a blade and can provide these measurements I'd appreciate it.
Thanks

Well I got the grader blade from the machine shop this afternoon, they got really busy and it got put on the back burner> So tomorrow I'll fab up a bracket to mount it to my sleeve hitch then its to give it a try. I just purchased a 1962 Craftsman Suburban DB tractor that will be my fall / winter restore project it has a 3 pt hitch so it will fun to get working.

Hi All, got the blade attached to the hitch and tried the brader out it going to be a keeper. Have to take it back to the shop to paint the blade and make a couple of final add on's like a trailer hitch etc.
