I imagine that the rear tires will slip before you bend anything, but a 350 lb blade would be fine with me. I have a very old JD blade I think I paid $250 or so several years ago. It works fine. You will have more problems with the belly pump hydraulics than anything else, not because of the weight, but maintaining the proper depth if you want something smooth. If I'm leveling something I run it backwards, either turned around or in reverse. My 460 works much better than my H or M, not due to power or lifting ability, but hydraulics that maintain the depth easily. On the good side, if you buy most any blade made by a major manufacturer and exclude the tractor stores products you won't have any problems with any new or used blade.

The 350# will not have any reinforcement behind the blade, my Land Pride has more steel on the back side of the blade than the rest on the mow board. I do like being able to drop the blade and it looks like a motor grader has been working the lane. The weak point was the top mount was bolted together, it is welded now.
