    Default PRINCESS AUTO BOX BLADE

    Anybody out there have 60" box blade from Princess Auto
    Your happy with it ?
    Built strong enough ? Good quality ?
    They have a good price on those, but I never saw one up close to judge by myself.
    For general maintenance at the back of a MF GC2610.
    Thanks for your input

    I think you should have a 48" box blade for your tractor.

    I looked at one in Princess Auto earlier today. The box appears to be constructed from 3/16 steel plate. What I worry about with Princess Auto stuff is if the Chinese welds will hold up.

    Never mind guys...
    I just bought a 48" Land Pride box blade at my local MF dealer
    Never saw PA box blade up close....but like Kryton just said...don't really trust the workmanship !
    You usually have what you paid for.
    Thanks anyway.

    I had a good deal...395 $ for a 700$+ piece.
    It is brand new...but been on the lot since 2009, so the salesman was more than happy to move it.
    It was originally red , but now look pink or so with little rust starting and the 4 tooth are completely rusted.
    I don't mind to much about the looks...it's new, never been used, and the price was great !

    Box blades are particularly good for buying through Craigs List or used some other way. You can pretty see exactly what you get, and there are - apparently - folks buying them for a single job, then selling them. My once rusty now green BB was cheap, and a friend just got a 60 incher on CL for $250.

    best question to ask re a BB is how heavy is it?

    it takes weight to penetrate the soil... i had to add several hundred lbs to make my bb useable. i suggest buying the heaviest bb you can find, assuming the rest of the unit is built well.
