    Danner, and all,

    What is the secret to using ether one to get a level result when they tip one way or the other when a tractor wheel hits a bump or rut? I get better results with several passes with the FEL backblading with the bucket bottom.

    I want to get a 60" backblade that tilts up on one side to use for making ditches I can still mow. Then I have thought, doing flat work, about adding a guaging wheel each side and using a flex connection on the top arm That way the blade will not follow the tractor wheels. I am good at fabbing my own stuff. My box blade is only 48" so not sure it is wide enough to be effective with the wheels.

    Any body done any of this or can share some operating secrets.

    For me, the box blade is far superior to a rear blade for shaping the earth. First, it has scarifier teeth to cut turf and clay quickly. Second, the box structure allows it to carry dirt away, similar to an earth grader.

    There is no secret to it, you just have to think about what you want to accomplish. If you had obvious high spot, cut them up with the teeth and drag the high ground away. Then, look for the low spots and drag extra dirt tin them. The top link is your friend. A long top link cuts earth and fill the box for dragging dirt away. A short top link has a smoothing action, which is good for finishing. Just get out they and work on it, you'll get the hang of it very quickly.

    Yea...my wife reminded me last night about the payments. In no uncertain terms I can't do much till I pay it off ... Hopefully that will not be long and hopefully 0% sticks around and I will go back for more...

    Very nice! I would like to see a picture I could not find, the underside of the rear rake please, if you can. I am not saying I am buying one, the good part is I am not saying I am NOT buying one ! I kinda like it!

    Price FOB zip 91016 please as well. 48" I guess?
