    Just my thoughts? I have a BB. Although it took me some time to use the BB proficiently, once I learned through trial and error, it's the "Cat's Meow". I also regard the BB to be a more versatile implement. Best wishes.

    Don't know everyone on the thread but I do know the people who have all of the aformentioned implements are suggesting a landplane. I can see and understand a discussion such as landplane vs. boxblade but the boxblade vs. rearblade is comparing two differnt tools with different uses.

    As I said in another similar thread, in my experience, a tractor like yours won't pull a rear blade, much less a box blade.

    Years ago, I had a kubota B7200, 17 hp, 2WD. I bought a rear blade and the results were completely unsatisfactory. 2WD and the light weight didn't even pull more than a 3" snowfall and was stopped dead by a rough spot in the yard I was trying to smooth out.

    Sorry, but my advice is if you need to get a blade, you need a bigger 4WD tractor ... and don't waste your $$ on a rear blade, get a box blade for that larger tractor. My .02, for whatever it's worth.

    (Even my 55 hp 4WD with the box blade rippers down and loaded tires has been stopped dead by a big root.)

    Love the box blade but never used one on a tractor with less than 45 HP. A box full of any material requires some rear traction for sure.
