    Default Angling a Box Blade

    What is the correct way to angle your box blade to crown a driveway if you do not have a hydraulic top link? I don't want to bend my top link again.

    Thanks.

    If you mean left to right, I use my adjustable link to my lower 3ph arm.

    Yes that is what I am asking. How many full turns is sufficient?

    Depends on how many degrees of crown you want.

    Set your blade on a flat surface.. like a driveway, now lift it so that it is 1/4" off the drive.. now adjust the hand crank to achieve the angle you want to use. Individual adjustment will vary by machine.

    Thanks for the help guys. Angling the BB worked great. Now I have the driveway sloped to the sides so the water will run off.

    Next to a FEL.. I consider a BB as the swiss army knife of tractor implements.

    I recently used mine this way. It was in some grassy clay soil and wouldn't dig much. I dropped 2 scrapers down on that side and it dug and cleaned out the ditch nicely.
