    Default Ok I did it. Got a new landpride rear blade

    The RBT3584... all hydraulic.
    Backed up to it and picked it up, quick hitch worked great, hooked up 6 hydraulic lines, bled the air out of the cylinders and I'm ready to go.
    My first project was to scrape off the spot where I keep all my other toys, er implements, and kill the weeds. I made a heck of a mess. took me about 8 passes to fix what I messed up. I dug holes, made piles of dirt, all kinds of silly stuff. But I finally got the hang of it and it looked pretty good. Next thing was to clean out my bar ditches. Weeds again ya know. Now I've got some distance to run and going slow I was able to set the blade where it did a pretty good job. Now all my bar ditches are clean. I gotta find something else to play in now.
    I'm glad I got the 7 footer. I had strongly considered the 8 footer but this 7 footer will shove my 5740 sideways real nice if I get too big a bite.
    I didn't get the gauge wheel ($$$) but I think I'm going to build one. I think it would make it easy to scrape dirt roads.
    I also need to get a couple of selector valves for my remotes. I have three so I had to disconnect my hydraulic top link to hook up all the hydraulics on the blade. I need to split two of my remotes in order to use everything...top link, swing, angle, tilt and gauge wheel. I need to take some pictures.

    Pros on the blade
    Well built,
    heavy,
    tight.
    whole bunch of stuff

    Cons on the blade.
    It was ordered orange,
    it showed up Landprides normal color.
    Oh well, I wasn't going to send it back.

    I have the same blade and I love it. I too made some big divots and messes while learning how to use it. I also bought their heavy duty skid shoes which really helped smooth things out.

    Congrats.

    That is a real nice piece of equipment. I looked real hard at the RBT3596 but ended up with the RBT 4096. Slightly used, the dealer was selling it on consignment. The blade barely had the paint knocked off it and the skid shoes had no wear and one of the end plates had never even been on the blade. Still had the shiny black paint on it. Got the the barely used 4096 for significantly less than the new 3596 so I went with the heavier duty unit. I am very happy with mine. You will be very happy with your new unit.
