    Default Was this gem worth 200 bucks?

    Was out scouring dealers in my new area and ran across an older guy with a new holland dealership with tons of old stuff... Been looking for a reasonably priced 4' box blade. Got the box blade for a whopping 200 bucks, although it's missing one of the rippers. Got the carryall for another 50 bucks with the cute little egg basket on the back!

    Any idea of the brand of the box blade? It resembles a king kutter with only three scarficers. cutting edge looks new and hasn't been flipped on either side... And they both bolt on, not welded so I know it isn't a cheapie..

    You did good! A new scarifier and some paint, should be worth around $400 if you want to flip it, or just hang on to it and use it knowing that when you do sell it you will not take a loss..

    Yeah, i thought so... I've already got it wire brushed and sanded down. I'm going to POR-15 it. Tsc has scarficers fairly cheap and so does eBay.. I'm going use it and keep it. Been looking for a long time to get a good price. Took both cutting edges off. Bolts were surprisingly like new... Now I'm just trying to find some rattle can woods type yellow to top coat the POR...

    Do you like that Por15? I have been debating for years to try it but at the cost I would kick my rear end harder than my wife would if it didn't work as great as advertised.

    Absolutely! When my dad and I had our mustang restoration business,
    We were the first people in Ohio to sell it. If it is prepped right, it will last for **** near ever. You can hit a hammer on it and it won't chip, again if prepped correctly.

    Regular POR-15 will fade in the sun. So use chassis black, or use a clear and top coat it with the color of your choice. I have a bunch of clear leftover from years ago(surprising it's still good). One the snow blade I did for My kubota, I cleared it and then misted in Kubota orange on top right before it was fully cured



    After all winter's use and lots of dirt and mud...



    Clean any loose rust with a wire wheel or brush, wash thoroughly and let dry. Use POR-15 Metal Ready and follow directions. It etches the metal with a zinc phosphorous coating that the POR-15 will adhere to. Oh yeah.... Use 2-3 layers of syran wrap between the lid and the can, or you'll never get it Apart again

    Wire wheeled it all, throughly degreased with a good cleaner and then sprayed on some POR 15 Metal Ready. You spray it on, it's a blue liquid similar to windshield washer fluid and let it sit. It's some kind of zinc phosphorous coating that etches the metal and gives POR15 something to adhere to. You can see the whitish looking stuff in the pictures. Then after you keep it wet for a good hour or so, simply rinse it off with water, let dry and you are ready to paint. I used some chassis black that I already had. I didn't have to topcoat it because chassis black is UV sensitive like the rest are. I wanted it to match my rear scraper blade, so I top coated it with rustoleum "old caterpillar yellow". I left the blades black for obvious reasons...
