Yours is a JD? What size/model?
The only blade listed for mine ((190C) on the JD website is 46" wide
and looks a little flimsy in the picture. Maybe the "frame" mentioned
above refered to the attachment's frame?... and not the tractor's?
Looks like you raise/lower the blade from the driver's seat? What
about blade angle?

If You buy one without angle adjustment maybe an extension could be
added to one side to push it out a bit more..The way it sounds tho Yer
not supposed to try plowing that much snow with a small tractor so
maybe no angle is normally needed..I'm kinda new to all this so just
That's exactly what I was thinkin'. But at $276, I personally
wouldn't consider it a "one use disposable" type.

Another thing, the website states it's designed to be used only for
snow. If that's true, I have no use for it (snow? HERE? not hardly).
As to blade angle, you can read the site two ways. Clearly it has
three positions. But it's not clear to me whether the angle can be
adjusted from the drivers seat or not.
Anyhow, I thought you meant you had used your JD for pushing instead
of the Wheel Horse. I guess I'll be checkin' into this a bit more
before I plunk down my hard earned $276.
Thanks for the info.
See if there is an "old-time power" club near you. If so they usually have
spring time auctions and flea markets where you can get good advice and pick
up stuff like that for less than $100 in good shape.

Old time power looks to be a NE USA thing.
Around here I just ask Folks I know and look around..The first two
I found at work,,one at the Crazy Ladys' house and one at the office
of My #1 customer,,both were "dead" but a battery cured the 1st and a
machine key(back axel)and the same new battery cured the 2nd..My Son
was on the 2nd after I got it running,,when He let out the clutch
nuthin happened,,mucked around a bit then noticed the axel spinning in
the wheel,,did'nt have mackine keys or even know that term but could
see a possibility,,searched thru My tool box,,found a siding screw for
steel building,,lined-up the keyway,stuck the screw in and told Son to
try going,,He opened it up and popped the clutch and took off doin a
wheelie!! I said "load er up I'm buyin it!"..
Dunno if You guys can tell but I like tinkering with this stuff..
