    Default Woods or LandPride rear blade

    I realize that I probably can't go wrong with either but I guess I am looking for experience between the following two rear blades: Woods HBL 72-2 or LandPride RB2672. I want a good fairly heavy rear blade that will last a long time. I have a kubota L3240 4WD to pull this beast. Main uses would be road maintenance (angle,crown) with ability to ditch (drainage for wet areas). The tilt is the second most important feature to me after the overall weight of the blade. I have a heavy box blade (LMC 6' - approximately 600#/not real sure) so moving dirt is not a problem. I like the flexibility of the rear angle and tilt blade; mine was apparently stolen (or somebody needed it real bad and forgot where they borrowed it from 3 years ago) and I am trying to avoid some of the short comings of it, mainly it was light duty, didn't tilt or offset. The offset feature seems to be the option I would use the least so I was leaning toward the LandPride because it has no pivot at the three point hit h; you must manually unbolt the moldboard to make it offset.

    Real world prices would be nice. Tractor house has the LandPride around $1000.00 and haven't been able to find a price for the Woods online. What say you? Any opinions are welcome and if there is a blade I left off I am willing to look at it too!

    To start with, I feel that with your tractor that you would be better served with an 84" wide blade. Now I know that money can be a big factor, but again you would be quite a bit better off with a Land Pride 36 series blade. It has some weight and will get some work done much easier than the lighter weight blades. The LP RB36 units are quite a bit beefier than the 26 series. I would imagine that the same holds true with the Woods blades also. Oh, to compare apples to apples, you need to look at the 36 series of Land Pride to be in the same duty level as the Woods HBL 72-2.

    Good luck with your search and your decision.

    Thank you Mtn View Ranch! I was wondering about stepping up to the 7 footer as well. I just looked at the 36 series blades again and they are definitely tough looking. Comparing specs I see now that u are right about apples to apples....the 36 series compares better to the HBL series from Woods.

    I do like the orange and black LandPride blades...

    Woods RB84 was $900 from a local dealer. I think this one is medium duty. I chose a BEFCO blade instead.

    You should check out our ETA Xtreme duty scrape blades. These quick attach compatible blades are made from the finest US steel and feature tilt, angle and offset functions as well as optional skid shoes and side plates. Our blades ship free to a business or supporting freight terminal within 1,000 miles of Newton, NC. If you take a look at the video, you'll find that our blade gives you more for the money when compared with any blade on the market. I hope this helps.

    I think what you will find is that there are about 5-6 different duty levels of rear blades. Now everyone does not name them accordingly, but if you look at the weight and design of them, that is how you need to compare them.

    Well said. I can't agree more! I would rank design over weight but both are critical factors in choosing the right equipment. You can have take an extremely heavy attachment but if it's designed poorly and lacks function, it's worthless.

    This is true, not much good is going to come of dragging around a 500-1000lb block of steel. I think for the most part, in general that most implement manufacturers know what works and what doesn't. This is why sooooooooo many implements look so very familiar to each other. After many trail and error attempts at something, a particular design ends up working the best and fits the price point, so that is what ends up getting made most of the time. Some companies have their own R&D, others basically just copy what is already tried and proven. No big deal, just how stuff works out in the long run.

    I can't say enough good things about my 84" Land Pride. The hydraulics are great. I think that this blade is about 800 lbs.
