    Default Is this box blade to heavy for a ck35? Woods/gill 6', 975lbs. Used

    Some of the most knowledgeable posters here have said (Iand I believe them!). That weight and strength are very important on a box blade. I think the united bb's are to light( 4xx lbs). I saw this woods/gill on eBay but am concerned it may be to heavy. I've been told 800lbs. Would be perfect for my machine. This one is 975 lbs. is this probably to much? Thanks for the replys

    Your manual should list recommendations; sounds a bit on the heavy side to me, but I'm not familiar with your tractor. I use a LP HR3584 at about 1100-1200 pounds on our L5740 and I believe that it's about 100-150 over the recommendation in the manual.

    If the price is right, I would get it. IMO it will be a bit big for you, but you can make adjustments in your working methods to accommodate that. A lot depends on your working conditions though. A unit of this size and weight has a pretty large capacity, around 1 cubic yard I believe. So a yard of dirt along with the weight of the box and you most likely won't be going up hill. Probably about maxed out going down hill.

    It's not just the implements weight that may be a problem, it is the capacity of the implement that is the bigger concern. Large carrying capacity and the additional rippers makes the implement "to much" of an implement for your size tractor IMO. Again, it's not that your tractor can't make use of the implement, just that depending on your conditions, you very well may not be able to use the implement to it's fullest capacity.

    It is what I call the implement working the tractor. I prefer to have the tractor working the implement.

    Here is a picture of my 32hp tractor with a full load in the 66" Gannon roll over box blade. The picture is not going up hill, but the tractor will do this going up hill.

    When I finally figured out what a "CK35" was, I looked it up on tractordata.com. (please include information, such as the brand name, when asking specific questions)

    I have a Gill 6' Roll-Over, and it really loads my Ford 2600. And, the 2600 is more tractor than what you have to work with. You will likely be overloaded, as most have said.
    However, as Brian pointed out, if you get a really good deal, go for it. Even if your current tractor can't really handle it, you might get a bigger tractor someday. You won't get a better box blade. Mine is over 30 years old. Never had a problem. I really don't know if you could tear one of these things up. I've had mine behind a 100 hp tractor.

    Big and mtnv, it's $1250 delivered to n Illinois, used of course. It's on eBay. I'd much prefer not to spend that much but, don't want to make a mistake and buy something to light and fragile. I agree that the 66" is probably the sweet spot and the 72", at least this beast is probably to much. I'm not sure if that price is negotiable.

    I don't want to be MR NEGATIVITY , but that is too much $$$$ to be spending for the wrong implement for your tractor IMO. I would pass on it and keep on looking.

    Something will turn up.

    Take a look here if you consider purchasing new.

    You mean like this Woods 750 on a 1433?

    -woods-750-1433-jpg
    Just kidding, I only had it there to move the blade out of the way.

    I am thinking like others, too much blade for too much money. If it was a great deal, it might be worth considering, as I think your machine could handle this blade for most scenario's, but that is not a great deal and it is not the ideal blade.

    Well - your unit is the twin to my Bobcat CT235 if I remember correctly. As far as weight it will not be a problem - I have a Ansung YJR074 tiller that weighs more on the back of my unit now. Zero issues unless I get heavy on dropping and stopping too fast (will bounce the front tires). I also use a 6 foot land pride box blade which will work the tractor a bit when fully loaded cutting old pasture. You quickly learn to adjust depth. I highly recommend the land pride if you can find one. One well constructed unit.

    If the price is right and depending on your use, it will work to the limitations of the tractor. Your call

    On edit - one thing I found good going to the full 6 foot is it covers the tire tracks of my tractor. I also just read the price - way too high - look for a land pride dealer or Agg dealer near you that rents and see if they have a unit in their rental fleet that they want to sell. Generally you will find the rental equipment of good or better quality to stand up the the use given. Now is the time of year dealers are doing that - getting rid of the old and bringing in new next spring.
