This is the current Sears Craftsman GT series dozer blade manual. This blade fits at least from 1996-2004 GT series including GT, GT3000, DGT4000, GT5000, and DGT6000.

Wow

SixChows, Many THANK YOU'S

We have 6-12" of snow planned for tomarrow. The neighbor is a contractor that has a number of customers on his back to wrap up their jobs before x-mas, despite the fact he told them back in Oct. that might not happen. Anyway he is awfully busy. I'm just trying to help him out getting the tractor and blade running right for tomarrow. This has been a tremendous help to me and him.

Thank you for taking the time to help us out.

Merry Christmas!!
Kevin

Glad to help!

Just a few things that I remember from installing this blade, make that large nut/bolt that goes through the channel and pivot plate as tight as possible while still allowing it to pivot otherwise the little spring will break.

The second thing is try to remember how far the nuts for the mower deck were on the lift link rods. It will make it a little easier to align the deck come spring. If you already took them out, just thread them all the way to the top of the link when you put the deck on and adjust them downward until the deck is level and the height adjuster seems accurate.

Hi Sixchows!

Sure wish my G14 was running since it has a blower and snowplow. This snowstorm here in Ohio caught me with just my DGT6000 and a box scrapper. Took the scarcifier and boxes off and it did okay, but I would like this blade better! I am watching a couple of these on eBay right now since all the Sear's around the area are out.

Unfortunately, the electric actuator on the sleeve hitch won't float so I am constantly having to adjust the setting. I'm thinking about taking that off for the winter and putting the handle back on so I have float. How long does one of these blades take to install? I have a grill guard on mine so I assume that will have to be removed.

Have a Merry Christmas!
Brian
