    That's an old JD model 80 blade out of the 1960's. I have this one at home and two at the farm, one angled & offset for road grading & one turned backwards for a 'bulldozer' (both inherited). They show up on CL around here frequently. I used it on my JD 520 & now with the 790. ~~ grnspot

I have a 31hp tractor with box blade, but I don't think that will work well. I have a front end loader but that's a bunch of starting and stopping, the box blade would work better.

    I like the idea of ...
    "Buy an old, cheap back blade that will pivot around backwards. Cut it down the center and weld it back together so it forms a 90 degree "V". Then when you go backwards the "V" will fill the trench from both sides. No chance of cave-in."
    That's probably what I need to do.

    Covering the ditch behind a trencher for 700 ft is a small job. Most ride on trenchers have a blade to push the fill back in, some have a small backhoe on the opposite end instead. You should be able to cover this with your small tractor using the boxblade or fell.
