    Hi guys ,

    My Horst welding blade came in today for my Kubota 7510B HST. It is made to fit on the LA302 loader. I will have a guy on the tractor helping me in town with some of the smaller properties. It looks really sharp but I know it will be slow going compared to my truck. I never thought to ask them about wings for this but maybe could add some later.

    Also stl-7.5 blade makeover is done and snowex salter - Thank You all here for your help in these projects. This site has been a great help with equipment and even helped land me some really good contracts. payup

    It felt like Christmas today when I went to pick this little blade up...lol.

    Hi A Man it was2 thousand , with the extra hydraulics added instead of manual. Almost 2200.00 with tax. I was not going to argue there is a waiting list and I ordered it about 45 days ago. Now all orders from Horst are expected late January...thats not good for us. So I was thankful to get my hands on it tymusic

    Got her on what a pain in the @##$ that was

    Got her on was surprised at how long it took me. This direct attach is for the dogs. I will look into changing that set up in spring. Took some pics in my garage.

    How come you just didn't get a bigger bucket? Did you have to run the left/right cylinders to the tip remotes on the tractor or is it angled another way?

    Hey Joseph

    I wanted the trip edge with springs- the buckett thing is a pain to me , many sidewalks in my town are cracked and high and low. Hit them with the buckett and it can throw you for a ride...lol.tymusic

    Hey JB ,

    It;s just the 1075 I think? I redid it and changed all the hardware. Had my welder make me a two inch receiver mount for the truck. It seems to work well. I will use the truck for my plaza'z and Tim Horton's we have two on each end of our town. Then I will send a helper to my smaller properties in town on the Kubota. On my way back can hit them all with salt. It works perfect in theory...lol...oh ya I forgot about those driveways I took about 15 minutes away :-( why in the hell did I do that ......lol

    Howdy HC I think 66 " there my freind ...I wish in a way it was slightly bigger - but I know much bigger would be trouble for the tractor. I can't use chains in any of my properties so I kept her smaller.

    Hey DP, nice purchase.... Horst Welding makes 1st rate stuff your going to be very satified once you put it to work. I own several large plows and all I run is Horst.. They are Worth the wait....

    I always order in August to beat the rush...

    Hi I just disconnect the tilt lines and the lines on the Horst blade take there place. The angle cylinder is huge on this thing and the hydraulic lines are the really thick ones. I guess they have like a 25 year guarantee. So my left and right is 35 degree angle left or right and then loader control up and down.
