    Default Now this is a serious box blade !

    After doing all the research on box blades and looking at more than a few different brands and refusing to pay for over priced names I found these sold thru Interstate tractor in White pine ,Tn which is just up the road from me . These are locally built from what I understand a father and son operation who build many attachments and are sold thru Interstate tractor .They have some serious steel in these with a lot of gusseting seem way over built compared to many sold thru the big box stores ! and I bought one yesterday brand new in the $500.00 range and can't wait to start using it today

    I stopped by my local John Deere dealer Ritchie tractor yesterday and when I asked about 5 ft box blade he said their $625.00 plus tax go out side and look at one ! I left ! the nite before I stopped at my local tractor supply and they had none and told me 2 weeks to order one , looked on ebay and found Interstate tractor ,Worked out well for me !

    That blade looks like the TSC County line blade, but actually weighs less and costs more.

    Grumpy beat me to it.

    The County Line one shown here has 4 less gussets that I can see and the top link connection is different. But it could be the diff between a 5 and 6 foot version.

    But how strong is strong enough ?
