Just got this with a little Yanmar YM1600 (16hp) and I won't be using it. Wes was kind enough to recognize it as an older (10-15 years?) Howse model GB5N which is now being sold by Northern Tool. (But this is probably much better built than the current back blades...)...new blades are $309 plus tax plus shipping (about $175 to $200),
Nice and solid with minor surface rust. VERY heavy duty, and the cutting blade is replaceable (but you will probably never have to do that)
Angles right and left but does not tilt. Distance from tip to tip on the 3 point hookup is 31", but practical distance is probably about 28". (One end just has to go in before the other one rather than spreading the 3 point to encompass both tips at once...)
Thanks for looking!
