    Default Rear Blade Sizing

    I was hoping I could get some thoughts on this matter...I have recently completed my deal on a new JD 3320 and one of the attachements I purchased was a rear blade to help me with my driveway about 1100 feet of driveway to be specific. The blade is a 60" model and I was just wondering if for this purpose a 72" would be better...

    Generally, you will want the blade wide enough to cover your tracks, even when it is angled. I would go bigger.

    I prefer a blade that's as wide (or wider) than the tractor while the blade is angled. That said, also consider, will the blade be able to pivot 180 degrees without interference by the rear tires.
    There are three kinds of men;
    1.) The ones that learn by reading
    2.) The few who learn by observation
    3.) The rest of them have to pee on the electric fence for themselves.
