Getting ready to pull the trigger and buy a RSX850i Trail version. I have not had any luck finding a snow blade/plow kit for the Trial version. Any one know of a kit for sale?

But i think the problem with the 550 blade is it requires the front receiver hitch, and with the winch you dont have that.
My Trail has the winch and receiver.

I am looking in our website for dealers, and it says the 66" blade that fits the 550 isnt compatible with the RSX! Have no clue why! Im gonna look into it further.

Very odd, if you go to John Deere Parts Manager Pro, and navigate to the 850 Trail section, they show the 66" blade in the attachments section.

Blade works great. We got about 6" of snow lastnight just got done cleaning drive way. Don't have a lot of money in it. Blade was about $250 when I bought it about 6 years ago might have $40 in material. I did ad some 6" wheels to it because my drive way is gravel keeps it from digging in

John Deere has the order number for the blade but I can't find it in the system any where. Its 8018M then order code 3153 for the bracket

They only say things for gators are for sale but don't have any order able all the time. Especially for this machine. Did you see in the owners manual it talks about a heater? It shows a knob next to the 4 wheel drive and what I gathered from it is that it uses gas and burns it to make the heat.

Hopefully the blade will be out by winter.
