    Default Skidsteer Box Scraper

    I added a quick disconnect plate on the back of my box scraper. My intentions are for grading & leveling with the skidsteer and pushing mulch into piles with the tractor. Still has the 3 point links for normal usage.The QD plate needed to be mounted high allowing the rear scraper door to hinge, but that required extra diagonal braces and removing the SS door when being used. Sandblasted & powder coated at a local shop. Extra weight should help when used with tractor 3PT. Overall, seems like an easy option for the OEM to offer.

    Wow, nice work! How much did they charge to powder coat?

    Great job! I can imagine having the box blade attached to the front of your CTL would really help when you need down pressure plus the ripper teeth are great for removing roots.

    Might call that thinking outside the "box".
    Have you considered the patentability of your idea?

    We need an update. How did it do over all? Does it tend to go deeper when pushing in hard dirt?

    I pull mine in reverse, and have thought about doing what you did, but it is far down on the list of projects.

    On a Tilt-Tach and a 3 point adapter.

    Thanks, they sure are fun to use.

    This is another cool tool box blade machine. It can do it on the front or the rear!

    Then there is the smallest cool tool 4' wide box blade.

    The box pusher works great, although visibility from the drivers seat is a problem. Can't really see the angle or amount of material being pushed. It produces a very level grade because the tracked machine is riding on level surface after pushing.

    I also tried used a three point adapter for pulling the scraper, but the reverse stress bent the pins on the tractor quick disconnect and broke the brackets on the adapter.

    Sometimes I just grab an I Beam and drag it backwards with the arms in hydraulic float
