    You, asked, I'm answering. Roll-over box blade. There are for sure better - heavier industrial quality units out there, but a roll-over works very well, use to be what was used for industrial work before the new heavier hydraulic actuated ripper box blades came into existance. You can pull a lever and to change what process you will be doing with the implement. you don't have to constantly change the top link length. Very easy to use, very durable. An implement to consider IMO.

    I have 3 of them, all Gannons (no longer made), an 81" for my 75hp tractor, 65" for my 32hp, & a 36" for the garden tractor. There are several dealers for them and have been told that there are 2 manufacturers for them, one a bit heavier than the other. Here is a link to for them.

    For more weight at the same width, look for a "high back" style.

    It will move more dirt also.

    Triple R - thanks for the those pics - looks just like the kind of places I'll be on the new property (thick). You're right, that Land Pride is a nice unit, but pretty spendy. Like the Bighorns on that Yamaha - great all around tire.

    MtnView - great implement - too bad they're not in production - maybe I can turn something like that up at one of the many farm and industrial auctions around here.

    The roll-overs are still made by bush hog and someone else, there is a link in my previous post that has a link to the units that are now available.

    There is a You Tube of someone using a roll over box blade. It is an old unit, but they don't look like they have changed. While I really like my Land Pride, I can see how handy handy one of those things could be especially with an open station, my brothers use the standard type and do an excelent job, but sure spend a ot of time on and off the tractor making adjustments, raising and lowering rippers.

    There are three suppliers of rollover box scrapers that I am aware of: Bush Hog (made for them by Dirt Dog), Dirt Dog Mfg, and A&B Eagle Line. Land Pride discontinued theirs about 2005, Woods discontinued the Gill line a couple of years ago, and then discontinued the Gannon Earthcavator shortly after. The Eagle Line models are a few pounds heavier than the Dirt Dog/Bush Hog models. Sweet Farm Equipment (New & Used Farming Tools & Equipment | Tractor Equipment, Farm Implements & More) is a dealer for Dirt Dog, and is an advertiser on this forum.

    Here is a link to Eagle line equipment. LANDSCAPE BOX-ROLLOVER 3 POSITION | A&B Eagleline Farm Equipment These are the way to go IMO. Either a RO or jump up to an industrial model at quite a few $$$$ more.

    I'm thinking that either the 77" or the 84" would be a good match for either of the tractors that you are considering.

    Good luck with your decision.

    I use two boxblades a small 4ft for my garden tractor made by Cammond and a Frontier/Gannon 7ft for the larger jobs. The Frontier model is a BB1284 which is 1250lbs and is used the most. Here's some pics.

    I have a 5' Gill medium duty that I bought off my neighbor for $200. I'm not sure how good of a BB it is compared to others because it is the only one I have ever used. But if you notice one thing in most of the pictures that guys have posted, is Top-N-Tilt kits. They will change your life if you use a box blade enough.
