I have one of those blades but no manual and missing most of the brackets, I made up my own mounting brackets for a gear drive model, I added a spring assist for the lift, it's inside the square tube right in front of the bumper.

Wow Doug, it's amazing how close your push tube looks like mine in design. However, I really like the way you set up the spring so that it's kind of an "auto attachment" like that. I have to build a push arm for my neighbors tractor and I may be using that set up for the spring.

Also, FWIW... the attachment on the 7/8 line is mounted totally different from the 10/12. You may be able to make one like it, but it's a whole different beast.

That mounting assembly that I made was based on the MF10,12s setup, the biggest problem with that setup on the MF7,8 is the trany hangs down low, I had to bend the main pipe to clear and replace the oil drain plug in the trany with one that doesn't stick out.
This is the first plow I made a few years ago for the MF12Hydra that is still used today.

I put a hole for a hitch pin in the front guide (middle pic above) so I can lock it up and then I can use the rear lift for other attachments.

Nice box blade... It looks like it's a heavy gauge length of angle iron and the teeth... are those rail-road spikes?? Cool! I might just have to borrow that idea!

Yes teeth are rail-road spikes, it's reversible, I have a gravel drive and I use it to smooth it out, looks really good when you go over the whole thing with the teeth.

I have the manual for the mf730, I'll try to scan it reasonably soon and post in the implements section. I remember that there is some mention of tying a rope on the upright lever to unlock the blade from the seat, but no clear mention of how you would be able to swivel the blade from the seat once you unlocked it. The mf730 assembly is much less durable than the mf630, also you can't reverse the cutting edge like you can on the 630.

I apologize for the delay, I finally uploaded the manual for the MF 730 today. I had initially scanned at too high a resolution and it was over the 30 mb upload limit for the site. I rescanned it at a lower resolution, but I think the pictures are still pretty clear. If you have any problems making out details, let me know and again thanks for your patience.
