    Default Countyline

    I have read the other posts on this but most of them refer to box blades and not rear blades I currently have a Woods box blade that works well for grading gravel driveway etc.

    However, I want a rear blade for plowing snow. This will be the only thing I use it for. I saw some blades at TSC. They are a yellow color w Countyline decal on them. They seemed pretty good, pretty heavy duty. For a 5 foot blade, they are asking 300 bucks.

    They have a Woods at my kubota dealer for 450, unsure of model number

    Does anyone have experience with the CountyLine rear blades, not the box blades.

    thanks in advance.

    Had mine for a year now. For all I ask it to do, which is plow some snow, it does just fine. I had no need of a fancier, higher priced blade. Countyline is TSC's house name for stuff. It's either a King Kutter or a TarterGate depending on where in the country you are located.

    I bought the slightly lighter, orange version, just because I got a great deal on it. (and it matched the 'Bota). For the money, it's darn tough to beat. I'd do it again in a heartbeat.

    I have had the 5 foot model for almost a year now and have no complaints. Works very well for pushing snow and smoothing my gravel driveway in the summer. It doesn't have all of the fine adjustment of the more expensive Woods models, but for the price, I wouldn't expect it.

    Is is best to go backward and push the snow, with the concave surface of the blade facing the snow

    Or is it best to drive forward and drag the blade with the concave surface facing forward

    I am doing a gravel driveway that has some steep inclines in it.

    I do both. Mostly pulling it with the blade turned around. I typically angle it 30 degrees and start making passes. Our snow is typically dry, however. If it were super wet and heavy stuff, I'd probably push it with the FEL. It keeps the gravel in place that way. I don't need to clear off that last 1/2 inch, so I don't. Driving crushes that into the gravel. I never allow the snow to accumulate more than 5-6 inches before I am after it. I find the B2320 can handle this blade very well. There's no strain at all.

    I got the yellow countyline blade yesterday, plowed some snow with it and it seems to work really well.

    Good for you. I have a 6' like yours. It has worked very well with no problems moving snow and gravel.

    I think I paid $319 at TSC about a year ago and so far, it is money well spent and, a lot less money than some other brands.

    Go slow and enjoy your new tool.

    I have a 5 foot TSC Countyline aka King Kutter. I have done some clean up work in the garden including pulling and pushing. I made a pile out of all the spent garden vegetation including weed and such. Since 3 point does not have a down pressure capability on occasion backing in to a pile lifted the blade over the pile. fiddling with the angle of attack helps some. The issue I had would be the same with all make and models. It is pretty good for $300 I spent on it.
