[quote="Lynn Patrick"](quoted from post at 16:43:47 10/17/20) Quoting Removed, click Modern View to seeEd Gooding posted the ARPS/Blackhawk manual on the N Board under manuals. The blade is designed to work off of the tractor hydraulics or with the Sherman backhoe.

[quote="8NChris"]What model is yours and where would the tag originally have been?

Model is AD 456 I think - it's not completely clear. It's right behind the bracket that bolts to the front axle (I think! It's too dark out now to see!)

I have the same one on my tractor here in Maine. It is simple and does a good job.

Quoting Removed, click Modern View to seeI have that same unit. I had assumed that the previous owner had added the brace to accommodate the 6 cylinder engine length. Now I see the original used both mounting braces. The mounting bracket was modified to catch the rear brace. What model is yours and where would the tag originally have been?

Thank's for posting the photos.

The blade in those pictures is the dozer blade. Sauder also made a snow blade with trip springs. And its also easy to retrofit a modern truck plow to the frame.

I have had both and the Sauder quick attach arrangement and hydraulic lift cylinders is a big improvement over the Dearborn bolt on 3pt cable lift designs. Still have a Sauder subframe I salvaged from a loader and a Meyers 7' plow in my "to do" pile.

I have a Blackhawk in eastern Iowa. Requires a hydraulic hook-up.

I have this same blade and mounting system. I thought it was a good "home brew" with the pipe members. A few good things about its design is that it does not put the push forces on the front of the tractor, but all the way back to the rear end where the forward pushing forces are. The frame and blade can pivot separately from the tractor and front axle so the blade can follow the ground quite well. Mine has 2 springs for trip. The hydraulics were supplied by locking the 3 pt arms in a raised position and then the hydraulic fluid is taken from the test port on the bottom of the Hyd pump and sent up to a standard 2 way valve. Of course the lift action is slow with the 2 +/- gal per min pump capacity. Thus the somewhat small diameter hyd lift cylinder at the front. The lift cylinder should be attached to the blade frame with a short chain so the blade can "float" on the ground. I pushed a lot of snow with this in the 70's and also pushed a lot of dirt while building my house. It is a pretty tough system.

I have a Dearborn front snow plow with skids and tire chains for
sale in central Michigan. Front mounting brackets are original,
rear brackets are not original. Needs a cable replaced.

It came with a 9N I bought. I've never put it on.

If you're interested my email is open on modern view.

The Sauder is unique as it is a "quick attach" once the mounting brackets are on the tractor. Would have to be careful plowing snow with one as there is no trip mechanism or springs that snow plows have to prevent coming to an instant stop or bending up the plow frame if hitting a frozen edge. The Dearborn snow plow has trip springs.

Good call by Ultradog on weights and or chains. Another way to add weight to the rear is to hang a back blade out back to move snow coming and going.

Good advice from Michford below.
I just wanted to add that you'll want rear ballast - either wheel weights or fluid in your tires And good tire chains.
Set up with that way your N will surprise you how effective a snow mover it is.

Dearborn (Ford) and a couple other companies such as Arps made a front mount snow blade for the 8N, so they are out there. Best bet is to try to buy one that is currently installed on a tractor that way you get all the required mounting brackets. I've seen prices anywhere from $200 to $600 asking price depending on condition and completeness. Be aware that the Dearborn gas two different front blades. Only the snow blade has trip springs behind the blade, the dirt blade does not.

Today's Featured Article - Grain Threshing in the Early 40's - by Jerry D. Coleman. How many of you can sit there and say that you have plowed with a mule? Well I would say not many, but maybe a few. This story is about the day my Grandfather Brown (true name) decided along with my parents to purchase a new Ford tractor. It wasn't really new except to us. The year was about 1967 and my father found a good used Ford 601 tractor to use on the farm instead of "Bob", our old mule. Now my grandfather had had this mule since the mid 40's and he was getting some age on him. S ... [Read Article]
