The 54-in. Front Blade is excellent for moving snow, gravel, dirt, sand, or other loose material. It can be hydraulically angled up to 27 degrees right or left or used in the straight-ahead position.

The front quick-hitch mounting system allows for tool-free change between the front blade, rotary broom, and snow blower on garden and small-chassis tractors.

The 54-in. Front Blade is compatible with the following tractors:
  • X700 Series Ultimate™ Tractors, X400 and X500 Series Heavy-Duty Garden Tractors, and 425, 445, and 455 Tractors
  • 1023E, 1025R, 1026R, 2305, 2320, 2520, 2720, 2210, 4010, 4110, 4115, and 4100 Tractors
Compact Tractors Require Front Attaching Support Kit (not included)
Not compatible with:
  • X500 Series Multi-Terrain Tractors
  • 320, 325, 335, 345, 355D, and GX300 Tractors
John Deere 54" Quick-Hitch Heavy-Duty Construction
  • A reinforcing angle is welded behind the front edge of the blade to provide added strength.
  • A replaceable cutting edge greatly extends the useful life of the blade. The cutting edge and blade form a continuous curve:
    • Rolls rather than pushes material, providing greater capacity

Breakaway Feature
  • Two large coil springs allow the bottom of the blade edge to be pushed back if a solid object is struck:
    • The operator does not receive a hard jolt
    • The chance for damage to the blade is reduced
    • A locking pin enables the blade to be locked in the vertical position

Adjustable Skid Shoes
  • Adjustable skid shoes on each side of the blade allows the operator to select the correct blading height to match various conditions and job requirements:
    • Adjustable to eight different heights (seven at 12.7-mm increments and one at 25.4-mm increment)
    • Allow for uniform grading/blading work
    • Replaceable as they wear out over time

Front Quick-Hitch Mounting System
  • The hitch slips over and locks onto the tractor frame with attached snap pins:
    • No tools are required
    • No loose parts to find
  • The same hitch works with several front-end attachments, including the front blade, rotary broom, and snow blower
  • When used on X Series Tractors, the front quick-hitch can be installed on the tractor when the mower is installed
  • Use of the front blade while the mower is installed is not optimum, because ground clearance is reduced and the mower deck may be damaged

Hydraulic Lift and Angling
  • The 54-in. front blade has a working range of 10 in. above the ground to 3-1/2 in. below the ground
  • The blade can be used straight ahead or angled left or right, up to 27 degrees:
    • Allows moving the bladed material off to the side and out of the way
    • Allows blading in a back-and-forth operation (no need to deadhead back to the origin)
  • The blade is angled, raised, and lowered by using the tractor hydraulic system
