    I have a Woods brochure (they bought Gill) and I have seen one. Best feature is they can go from level to scarfier in a few seconds. Worse feature is that cost more than one that doesn't do this. They are also heavy and that IS good. [img]/w3tcompact/icons/smile.gif[/img]

    wen,
    Thanks for the info. I will be looking at a used rollover blade this afternoon. The seller says that it has been kept inside and that it is a heavy blade. If Woods bought out Gill then maybe it is a good one. The asking price is lower than the cheap regular blades that I have looked at. Maybe I had better get this one.
    Thanks again.

    Gill has been building rollover scrapers for many years and they are practically indestructible. Rollovers are typically heavier than a comparable width standard box scraper. For example, my Woods/Gill 60 inch rollover has a spec weight of 730 pounds. The standard Woods 60 inch box scraper shows a spec weight of about 460 pounds.

    If the asking price is less than a cheap box and its in decent shape jump on it you won't be disapointed with your buying decision. Good luck
