    If a person could find a cheap, heavy duty rear blade to adapt...

    It looks great for ditching work with a backhoe. It is not always convenient to get in there with the front end loader- but this design you have could do just a good a job. I use easy slopes on my ditches because I don't want the horses suddenly stepping into them. Great scraper- like yours more than the others people linked.

    Workinallthetime,
    Yes, those store bought ones are nice. But the 72 inch one would be twice the price I have in mine.

    Tcreeley,
    Thanks. I have runoff berms that channels rain water into my ponds. There are trees close to them. This will make maintaining the berms a lot easier.

    I like that cylinder on the blade. I gather whoever added it, didn't have a shorter cylinder to put it closer to the pivot to avoid foreigh object damage out there. The one on the ex looks more like it would work cleaning out ditches. I also like the huge back fill blade attached to the ex.

We cut a couple of links out of the chain until it would not fall off the teeth hanging straight down. One of the welders mentioned with the design of the glove mount on the teeth, any slack in the chain would let it fall off. So I want to figure out how to make more angle in getting the blade to grade on a slope.
    To securely hold it in place, how about putting a hook on the front side of the moldboard and running the chain from the front hook, over the bucket to the rear hook?

    That sounds good, I just don't have that much need for something like that at this time... but I have 'subscribed' to this thread in case I find the need down the road. Actually, if I build the new house I am thinking about.. I am going to need it.

    Jim,
    I don't want to hold it securely in place. I want just a little more slack in the chain for it to settle on a slope at the slope's angle. Adding another clevis between the chain and eye mount might give enough slack for the angle, without the blade falling off of the bucket's teeth.
    hugs, Brandi

    Oops. I forgot to add the painted, finished, product. It's been raining every weekend, so I have not been out to put dirt on the paint yet. -9-15-13-painted-grader-9-15-13-painted-grader-9-15-13-bucket-eye

    Nice job. I built one for my backhoe but clipped it on differently so I could put ripper teeth 90 degrees to the blade and that way I can curl the bucket to rip then open it up to grade.

    We are pretty close as it turns out distance wise.
