    Default Well Used Box Blade

    The two pictures are of a friends International 3616 w/FEL and Gannon Box Blade. The point? HOW NOT TO TREAT YOUR BOX BLADE!!!
    P.S. - Sorry about the pic size, I used my wife's camera, and I didn't notice she had it set to the finest setting. Sure made some whoppers!!

    This is the tractor w/blade mounted, it's got so many tweeks to it, I am not sure you could ever save it! Course, if you wanted a winter project...he don't, he could possibly save it. Even the top link has a good 15-20 degree bend in it.

    That box does look like it's been run hard and long thats for sure. But the nice bend is the reason that I don't like a hinged back blade. Seems that they will bend alot quicker than a fixed back. Once they do bend like that you will never get them right again. Too bad. But even bent up it's still a usable box just cuts alittle different.[img]/w3tcompact/icons/smile.gif[/img]

    Gordon, it's not even that anymore! If he lowers it, then its an hour job to get it raised again, BUT it does provide some balancing weight for his FEL. I've tried to convince him he needs to either rework it, or buy a new one, but for his purposes (I guess) it works just fine, so he don't want to do either.
    it definately has seen better days.
