    Yup, just you
    When you need to search for something on this and many forums use a powerful search engine like Google.

    Basically type in your search words, then type in "site:" then type in the site name.
    Example:
    box blade size site:tractorbynet.com

    Try it, you'll like it.

    /edit - note I haven't figured out how to search just subforums.

    Which One do you want to know about?

    Our severe extreme box blade will be over the top durability with your tractor. It is more box blade than most choose for a tractor that size but it will be a great choice and last a lifetime. If you checked them out on our site, you know that they're set up for both Category I and II 3pt hitches so you'll still be fine if you ever upgrade to a Cat II tractor. If you did have a budget, the regular XTreme box or even the compact blade would perform fine with your tractor.

    Brian got to you first and he is The Guru on T-B-N on box blades, among other things.

    I concur with Brian on heavy.

    This may be your first on/off 3-Pt implement, therefore the following: As there is NO hydraulic down pressure exerted by the 3-Pt. the weight of your box blade is going to determine how well it cuts, both blades and rippers.

    I have a 57" wide Kubota B3300SU/33-hp/1,800 pounds. I drag a 60"/630 pound Bush Hog (brand) imported Rollover Box Blade. B3300SU + ROBB is a well matched combination moving Florida sandy loam. I rarely employ the rippers.

    I regularly transport tree trunks chained to the FEL. The box blade on the 3-Pt. makes a compact FEL counter balance, which, being behind the rear axle, relieves strain on the FRONT axle as you bounce along.

    I would not buy a box blade much wider than the rear tires. You have to maneuver that ponderous thing back there......

    I order implements from Everything Attachments and Iowa Farm Equipment. Excellent customer service from both.
    However, the ROBB came from a JD Distributor.

    I just have a question for you one the release handle on the rollover box blade you have, can you reach it from the seat. It looks like the curvature is going in the wrong direction like the handle is installed backward. Wouldnt it work better with the curve toward the tractor? Just an observation from the photo which could be all wrong.

    In photo #1 + #2 handle is in the position in which I received the ROBB. Reaching it was a stretch. I was so excited moving dirt the first 1-3 occasions I hardly noticed inconvenient handle position.

    In photo #3 I have reversed the handle and now it is in an ideal position. Reversing just meant removing two sets nuts/washers/bolts, flipping the handle and replacing the nuts/washers/bolts .....but I am not very bright. The holes are slightly slotted so there is a little adjustment available. First position may have been a "shipping" position. I need to take current photos.

    My 'Bush Hog' ROBB was manufactured in India. I believe all or most ROBBs offered for compact tractors today are sourced from one vender in India. They all look similar, spec nearly the same and have RO-_ _ _ stenciled identically. There is nothing wrong with the steel fabrication, but the paint on my ROBB is not well applied and flaking.

    Before I installed aftermarket, rigid, pin-adjustable stabilizers from Stabilworks, which replaced kubota "check chains", the ROBB was difficult to mount and I was afraid to PUSH dirt in reverse, photo #3, Post 13/above. Now, mounting takes two minutes or less and pushing loose dirt causes no anxiety.

    Buzzard,
    Do you have top and tilt? If not it would be a good idea to budget this into the mix too. Will help with both the boxblade and landplane.


    The roll over boxblade loooks good too.

    I would say 72" was about the right width. Weight depends on your soil and use. If in light loam or fluffy sand you don't need much weight. But in clay or stoney you can't have enough!

    I have clay with stones in the woods and use a Gannon "landscaper" with pivoting scarifier bar. It's 66" and just under 1000#. Overkill? Maybe but its stopped the tractor dead hitting roots and rocks for 10+years without breakage. I'd never buy less for my ap.

    Thank you for the responses. I do not have the top and tilt but would like to add it. I already have power beyond but guess I would need another remote? The soil I have is heavy, full of rocks and roots. I just got out of work and am checking the suggested brands and going through the responses.

    I can't find a price anywhere on the Gannon HD 66" JenkinsPh suggested? Anyone got an idea?

    And thank you for the search tips. Works way better then the TractorByNet search.

    ..........
    Use Google Site Search. Google Enterprise Search - relevant, easy search for intranets and websites

    Enter the site ( tractorbynet.com/forums ) in the left box and (box blades) in the right box. Works for any web site.
