    Default Everything Attachments Xtreme Duty 78" Box Blade

    Just thought I'd give my thoughts after using my new EA 78" Xtreme duty box blade.

    Ordered it on a Wednesday and received it on Tuesday. I could have gotten it a day earlier, but I wasn't home that day. It arrived in excellent condition and ready to work! At 680# it is probably the heaviest BB in that size without going to one with hydraulic rippers. After measuring the wheels on my DK50SE, I knew I didn't want a 72" but was concerned that a 84" would become a problem in the woods. Thank goodness EA is one of the few who actually make a 78" because it fits very well on my tractor! Just a few inches outside the rear wheels so I can get close to things (probably about the width of my rear view mirrors).

    The one minor issue I had was the cotter pins on two of the rippers are a real pain to deal with. Other than that, it was easy as could be to set it up. I used it to grade a 1000' hard-pack drive and man did it make short work out of it. No skipping at all! Of course, I waited for a good rain to try it out, but still, that drive is VERY hard...almost pavement like on a dry day.

    Using my TnT kit from MIE I tilted it forward to let the rippers do their dirty work first, then tilted back for 2-3 passes to fill it the abundant pot holes. I was very pleased with the result-especially since I'd never done this before. Hopefully it will last for years to come.

    Yeah.....about that....uh...

    Surely I'm not the only one to be so excited to work (play) with my new tools (toys) that I completely forgot that there are some here who need their visuals. I'll have some taken on my next go at it in a week or so.

    Sorry!

    Still itching to get mine, but I want to wait until I can afford a set of ag tires. I just don't think a 2wd with turfs will be very effective with a box blade.
