    Thanks
    This is the normal KK purchased from TSC in 2003 here. I paid about $450 for it. I have been browsing around recently and find that the upper end Woods units are of similar construction, the light-duty Woods are far lighter and thinner. The County Line at TSC seems similar. I know there are far heavier BBs out there, but I believe they are for those folks with heavier tractors working extensively in areas with massive rocks and stumps. In my view the BB is designed for working with dirt and gravel. The scarifiers do well to break up dirt and frozen/dry gravel, but I'm sure that had I made a steady diet of roots and big rocks I could have damaged the blade. When I was jerked to a stop by a rock, I mentally marked that spot and didn't hit it again until I had a chance to dig out the rock.

    Again I had a 68 hp JD pulling it to routinely care for a full mile driveway, and to level the lawn around my home, smooth some fields and generally tend to dirt stuff. I found that if you tile it radically forward with the scarifiers down, it does a passable job of plowing/tilling when I broke my tiller. Good piece of equipment. Blades are still in good shape after years of use.

    When I started out, I was a frequent customer at the local weld shop Then TSC started putting HP ratings on their implements and, of course, their implements were not in my league.

    When using implements that might catch on a rock or hidden post, one of the keys is to move slowly, not much above an idle. If your nose almost hits the steering wheel, you are going way too fast.

    Well dang!! I guess I didn't turn the page. They do indeed build a BB that will handle more power. I just wonder if I need my front end loader to haul the cash needed to buy one.

    I was going fast. I was spreading crushed asphalt on a dirt parking lot. There wasn't supposed to be anything there, you know, being a parking lot and all. Sometimes you need to go fast.

    allen,
    I have a Cammond small boxblade and a larger Frontier/Gannon boxblade, both are good brands imo. The Frontier/Gannon would be a good match for your tractor as I use it with my 4520 most of the time. Mine is a BB1284 with hinged tailgate, hyd scarifiers and weighs 1250 lbs, does a great job for me, here some pics. A similar Cammond if available would be a good choice too.
