    Default Woods GB72 Box Blade

    Folks,

    I bought a WOODS GB 72 brand new still on the pallet...only to find that it does not cover my tire tracks.

    So I bought a WOODS HB 84 - And am very happy

    Except what to do with a NEW WOODS GB 72 -- So I have decided to endure the ire of several longstanding members and post this thread offering to:

    SELL the WOODS GB 72 6 Foot Box Blade for $800.00 to anyone within 50 miles of Austin, Texas - I will deliver within the 50 miles.

    The price is $800.00 - Delivered, new on the pallet to a buyer whom is interested, I am just trying to cover my cost..and keep from living in my shop as my wife is not pleased with TWO box blades in the shop.

    PLEASE CONTACT STEVEN @ 512-791-4982

    Thanks to all whom may be interested.

    That's a nice box blade. What tractor didn't it cover tracks for?

    kubota L4310 - The tires are not orginal and thus wider that the R1's I had on the tractor - never thought to measure before buying..I needed a box blade to "edge" along the fence line and other applications.

    Thats a nice box. I wish I was lived closer to you, I would take it off your hands. If you don't mind checking, how thick is the square tube that holds the scarifiers. I'm in the market for a box blade and I've been looking at a bunch of different ones, (locally and on the net) and that is one dimension that is hardly mentioned in the specs.

    Thanks,
    Joe

    The steel shanks are held in place by a 4x4 (11 guage) about 1/4 to 3/8th Thick Square steel - no welded channel iron as you will find in the other junk. Also on the Woods models there is a quick change feature that allows three shanks to be changed out at a time with only one pin. The welded supports to the A-Arms keep the hitch from bending up. Hope this helps -

    I have that box blade too. Nice piece of equipment. However, the quick change feature allows you to adjust two, not three, shanks at a time. No biggie but figured I might as well correct that slight error.

    Yep the shanks are two at a time on the GB 72 - with my abundance of box blades I got the features mixed up.

    Thanks for the correction.
