    KyDan,
    I assume since you have R4 tires that you have the 17.5 24 rears as I have on my 4520 pictured above. Since we are at the same weight I think you can handle the 7' Gannon boxblade without problems unless your ground is slippery.

    Well, now you guys are scaring me. That loose scarfer is missing the pinch clip/or what ever they are called and I forgot to grab another one the last trip to town to replace it. This blade has had a lonely, neglected life, abusing her complexion, allowing moisture and father time to give it their best to render her with rust and degradation.

    Not going to happen with this massive piece of All American Steel. I've applied massive amounts of penetrating oils to relive her ailing joints and dry skin.

    That scarfer is chomping at the bit to rid the world of its many imperfections.

    Now is my Challenger up to the task. I,too have lingering doubts.......

    Should I put the blade on a diet, or find a party willing to trade.......

    Nothing going to happen real fast as the backhoe is is still on the tractor and the snow blower is usually residing on the tractor this time of year......

    No snow.......temps in the 50/60's.....killing our ski season. My Daughter last year at Squaw.........

    I've seen your setup and it gives me a sence of hope. Yes my tires are that size and are construction type tires, R4 ? , not sure, but I know you will not see them on a golf course, nor me as well, as I'm still making payments on the tractor and my daughters deep into ski racing.....

    Your input is always informative and appreciated. As are so many others here on TBN.
    The proof is in the pudding the big lug on and making the world a smoother place. I'll do a bit more camera work as well.

    I've gathered up the parts to do the TNT thing. As many as 6 more HYD circuits to add to my power beyond and the two factory circuits added a few years ago $$$$$$$$$$$$. I'll try to get some pics up of the components for that project. This is the current project and it consumes most of my free time.

    HSSC, I think we stole your last snow, got about 18" in town and more on Ski Apache. Time spent with your daughter is priceless, enjoy it while you can.

    I use a 2000 lb+ rear blade on my kubota L5030HSTC, it hangs farther out than a box. You should be fine.
