MTD 190-833 Dozer Blade on Cub Cadet SLTX1050

Today I shimmed the mounts for the MTD 190-833 dozer blade, to make it touch the ground when lowered. I used longer grade 8 bolts and a pair of stainless steel washers plus three grade 8 washers to shim the mount at the top.

I then installed the MTD 190-874 wheel weights and plowed the driveway of the 4″ of snow we received last night. It worked very well, and at this point I’m glad I got the dozer blade instead of the much more expensive snowthrower. I spent a lot less money, and the dozer blade will be useful for more than just snow.

Tools for new tool cart

I’ve been slowly acquiring tools for a tool cart that I will use as my go-to cart for automotive work.  Other than tools I received as Christmas gifts from loved ones, I’ve thus far been focused on 1/4″ hex drive tools (ratcheting screwdrivers and the like).  You can read about what I have so far here and see my remaining wish list here.
