I’m looking for a rear blade for my B2650. I’ve looked at the LP and Titan. And are confused which one to get. I’m a newbie when. It comes to tractors and attachments

26HP isn't much against a 6' ,heavy blade. I can stall my 45HP tractor with the 6',heavy blade I use with it.
Honestly I can't see running anything wider than 5' on your small tractor. A lot depends on what you're using it for and soil conditions though.
whatever you buy, be sure to have a soild ,level place to store it ! Big concrete pad, pad of patio stones, hard packed 'crusherrun'. Getting 3PH implements on/off on anything other than flat,level ground is NOT fun.

Well, a 6' blade at a 30* angle is only about 5' wide. I know that I very seldom operate at that small degee of an angle, typically more like 35*-40*.
As far as weight, simple raise the hitch a little and put some of the weight on the rear tires.;)

Using an older 7' LP RB3584 on my B2650, a rear remote runs the swing cylinder. Using a 7' because it fits the garage door.

I think a RB1684 or 2684 would be good. My dealer recommended that I go with a 7 ft because you lose length when you angle it. I haven’t tried mine with snow, but snow is supposed to be pretty easy to move. I also think taller is better for snow.

The offset is kind of lame, btw. You have to pull bolts to move it over if that is a consideration for you.

You could also see what model GP Outdoors on youtube uses. He has rear remotes though.

I have a 6 foot pivot with off set. It seems to do fine on my L185 turbo.
It's just not heavy enough to really dig in on hard packed ground.

At 30° the cutting width is only 51.9 inches at 40° its down to 45.9

HP doesn't matter. Weight matters. The L2501 would be just fine with that blade. All more HP gets you is spinning the tires sooner.

That said, weight on the B series would probably be an issue with a 6 ft blade.

OP I would get a blade that is a bit wider than the rear wheels, so when it is angled you are still covering your tracks. The heavier, the better. If it digs in and stops the machine, just take a lighter cut.

So a 6' blade. (y)

Cold dry snow moves readily. Warm packing snow gets heavy real quick. Wet snow that was pushed into windrows and then froze after the last time you plowed is like moving concrete. There is snow, and then there is snow. This is why so many pickup trucks come with warnings not to use them for plowing and why snow plow prep packages are generally only available for the heavy duty versions, with stronger frames, transmissions and drivelines.

Torch, I grew up in West Michigan. You are correct. There is snow then there is SNOW. Warmer weather has the snow much wetter, denser, and heavier. The colder the dryer and more fluffy. Let wet snow sit and it packs reall solid and is hard to move. Growing up we didn’t have a snow blower until I was almost out of the house. I have shoveled more snow than I care to remember. Wet snow is the worst.
