    Default CountyLine from Tractor Supply

    Does anybody have any practical experience with the new lower priced implements from TSC? I'm looking to buy a 5-6 foot backblade for very occasional use grading the rough spots/pot holes out of my road before gettin' after it with the York rake. It looks like the "old" KingKutter stuff is there under what they call the "Professional" line (yellow), and the new CountyLine (orange) tools are priced much lower.
    I just want to make sure that I don't waste my money on the low end stuff by trying to save a few bucks.
    Has anybody seen them both? Recommendations?
    Thanks,
    Rich

    Check and compare the gauge of the metal and look over the welds. You don't have to be a professional welder to see if they are not even or cut. You have a pretty powerful tractor to be running a light duty blade. Don't want to fold that blade up.

    I'm sure you are tired of hearing this, but you get what you pay for.

    IMHO,I would not buy any new implement from TSC.I spoke with a King kutter rep.at the farm show in Ky.this year he told me that all TSC wanted to carry is cheap junk.I think all they want to carry is cheap china junk.coobie

    Still working on this blade issue. I appreciated the inputs I got here and after going down to TSC and looking at their stuff, I'm willing to spend a little more for better quality.
    I found a used 6' LandPride RB15 for $400, but my tractor (L4400) is already 6' wide, so what I really need is a 7 footer.
    I've got a 7' York rake (RW series), and was thinking that maybe the drop down grader blade attachment was worth looking at despite the price (quoted $569 by three dealers).
    I like the idea of not having to change out between the rake and the blade, but it looks kind of light duty.
    Has anyone used this thing? My rake already has the scarifier, and what I really need the blade for is road grading/ditching a couple of times/year. I'm trying to keep from pulling up all the "fines" that the rake produces. I'm not going to try to dig with it.
    Inputs (as always) are welcome. I'm in something of a fog here, but I need to do something this spring...the road is full of potholes and the rake isn't cuttin' it.
    Thanks,

    I just bought a 48" Box Blade from TSC, Countyline By King Kutter. All I want to do is is about 400 feet of driveway and through down some #8 stone. I have a JD 2210 cut and fel. I'll let you know how it does this Saturday. Like yourself I want to fill in the pot holes, I don't want to tear up my bucket edge or the front blade. I was looking for any box blade just can't find them, scrap metal went sky high last year and that put the kabosh on the the price of any thing made of steel this year. It's funny how scrap is at one of it's points but steel never droped a bit.

    I'd either look at a 78"-84" box blade for the road work, as you can use it for a lot of other things, or go with an 8' blade so when you tilt it you're still covering your tire tracks. Another trick I've seen done with back blades is to rivet asphalt belting or heavy mud flaps to the outside edges as "soft wings"

    I am also looking to buy a 5' boxblade and 5' scraper blade for my 2320 JD. I just got off the phone with the Tractor Supply guy...he told me that the countyline brand is made or owned by King Kutter.... same implements just with a different name made just for Tractor Supply. I found out that the weight on a 5' boxblade is 415lbs as compared to John deeres 465 lbs version. both have 5 ripper teeth and both are supposed to be i-hitch compatiable.... The scraper blade from TS weighs in at 196 lbs, comparing to John Deeres 249lbs. To purchase these two items from tractor supply $768.00 To buy the comparable items from my local John deere dealer....$1900.00 Thats $1132.00 difference Now I know that green paint is not that expensive. The weights in the products are close enough that I believe they are a good product. I will be using them only for my own personal use....does anyone out there have any opinions on this or has anyone seen these implements.....let me know.... thanks

    According to what King Kutter told me at the National Farm Machinery Show a couple of months ago, County Line is TSC's brand. Depending on geographical area, KK may supply all the implements (in the South in particular), in other areas, TSC may use other manufacturers for some of them. The tillers are all supplied from KK, according to the guy I talked to.
