    Great blades, I have a 14ft sitting here that I'll sell for 4k. It comes with a joystick, mount for a 7000 series Deere. I can send you pics if your interested. The 14 ft is hardly any heavier then a 12.

    I'm a little confused (as usual). Why would you put a blade on a loader (unless you plow everything to the side)? Why not keep the bucket on it and just add an "extender"? Then you can just drop the extender and use the bucket when you want to stack or load.

    Like the 1988 John Deere 644E in our album - I don't know how to insert it here.

    I mentioned I had a 14. Used V's don't come up very often. That is the only one we have, we run all Horst Blades with global quick tach so I want to have everything the same that's why I'm selling it. Machinability is the same if not better quality then the Horst.

    Yes One hose to an electric over hydraulic valve bank that the joystick controls.

    The harness could be changed to any brand tractor in less then a day with a good welder.

    The bucket extenders I was trying to describe are "cages" that hook onto welded-on hooks on the top of the existing loader bucket and extend out the front and sides as much as you want. They don't change size or configuration but you can pick them up and drop them off any time you want. Gravity keeps them on when you're traveling. You leave the bucket on all the time so you don't need a quick-connect system to move back and forth from bucket to blade to ....; no hydraulics involved. They cost us between $3,000-4,000 for our JD644Es, Case621B, etc.

    We have had three in our fleet on tractors and they are a bulletproff, overbuilt and over-engineered attachment. We still have one of them that gets abused every storm.

    Daves deal is smoking! Ours were well over $18,000.00 a piece! :drinkup:

    The V blade is now sold, thanks for posting this thread, sorry it wasn't you that bought the blade. A guy from Kitchener called me this morning and bought it over the phone.

    Sorry I missed your call Gary. I really don't know what the blades are like that Jeff Stewart has. You can generally tell how rough thev've been used by the centre pivot, if there's no extra welding done the blade has been treated pretty good. Personally I'd go with a wing plow but there's nothing wrong with a V.
