    You should check out our 5' value series scrape blades with tilt, angle and offset capabilities. Compare the features/specs and you'll find that you get more for your money with our blade.

    Tilt is really nice when you are running a blade on a CUT/SCUT. Specifically, unless you are trying to reset the side-side grade on the road, it is much easier to remove the tilt locking pin and let the blade follow the road contours. With such a small tractor (no stones thrown *grin*, I love mine), the hardest part is doing work despite bumps in the road. With a short wheelbase, small bumps (both side-side and front-back) are often magnified and sent back to the implement. Meaning: when the front tires go over a rock, the back digs in... Or when a right tire drops a little low, the right edge of the blade digs in. Keeping the tilt unlocked will mitigate this problem, as will going slow and practice.

    The easiest solution, however, for driveway maintenence will be the Land Plane (or Grader, Grader Plane, LPGP... Many names). I found the Land Plane to be in a whole different class for driveway grading and repair. Since it rides on the ground itself, you don't see any of the "bump effects", and its rails keep things nice and smooth. The Rear Blade is a great general purpose implement and I'm not sure what your intended use is, but I just wanted to throw that out there.

    I think you will find the Woods, Frontier, Lands Pride and a few other brands will show up as solid choices no matter which specific implement you are talking about. With TSC, you want to check what brand they are re-badging for that implement. For example, the splitters and post hole diggers are re-badged from good manufacturers. It seems like the tillers are split, some are Woods and some are some other manufacturer with a less solid rep. I don't know who makes the rear blade but I hear slightly flimsy feedback (exactly like earlier in this thread). That said, we really do have small tractors and I suspect we'd loose traction before we bent it. I don't think I've read of an actual bad experience from someone in our weight class. So, for me, the thing that would steer me away from the TSC is the lack of blade tilt...

    Hope this helps

    I just read the reviews on the TSC site. Anyone thinking of purchasing a back blade from them might want to do the same.

    The TSC blade does not have a park stand which it is light so that does not matter too much.

    A buddy of mine down the road destroyed a 6 foot TSC blade on a 40pto hp CAT1 2wd john deere no chains probably weighs 4800lbs Hooked a patch of Frozen ice from a previous storm at about 6-7 mph. It bent the blade about 15 degrees, twisted the main tube and popped the weld that had almost zero weld penetration on the anchor point to fix the angle of the blade. I doubt the 1026r has enough weight or hp do damage a TSC blade. But neither of us have had luck with any of the extremely cheap TSC equipment. Back blade, brush hog, 3 pt post hole digger. Its definitely a case of you get what you pay for with tractor supply unless they have changed out they build their stuff in the last 10 years. I would get a landpride. If i buy and implement i don't want to have to worry about babying it. I realize that if your doing something stupid things break but if your just using something the way it was intended it should last for ever.

    I bought the same blade years ago. It is tougher than anything my 2305 could dish out.

    I am not sure what all I plan on using it for, I know blade snow which we don't get much here in Missouri it would be fine with me if we never got in snow! I have a long circle drive way and seems like the center gets built up and would like to cut it down and grade it too, all the gravel get thrown out of the tracks and going down in my woods. Maybe cut a ditch, not going to get too serious with it, but one person asked me do you want to buy 1 that lasts forever then buy a good one like Landpride. I own a Landpride box scrapper and brush hog already. Called the John Deere dealer and he said the landpride RB1560 is $550 or the RB1660 with tilt is $750.

    The rear blade will be good for snow removal. I like to use my rear blade to fix the gravel on the driveway. I get good results running the turning the blade around backwards and going forward, if it is angled slightly it will help create a crown. I like using a box blade to cut a ditch. Everything Attachments has a video on that. here is the link. I think a box blade is better for cutting a ditch because you can use the scarifiers to help cut. I think you can get a Woods RB60 in the $600-650 range. It is comparable to a Land Pride RB1660. The Wood RB60 is also sold as a Frontier RB2060. I have a Woods RB60 for my BX.

    Since you don't have a top and tilt hitch the RB 1660 would be my choice for multiple uses.
