    Jeff,
    Now that all of us "experts" have given you the famous TBN data dump, you are an official expert on box blades! Congratulations! Unfortunately, you probably feel like you know less than you did when you asked the question. (Sorry if that's the case)

    There are a few really really good brands out there. The Landpride 35 series is one of them, Gannon is one, Gill is pretty good from what I can tell, and yes the Monroe also sounds pretty good too. Rhino is also a very good industrial grade maker. They only have hydraulic scar bar boxes, so I had forgotten about them before. They are priced a bit above Gannon in my area.

    If you want to get a strong implement and also want to save some money, you can look at the ones with "fixed" scarifier bars. The individual scarifiers are mobile up and down, but the whole bar is fixed. That alone can cut you price in half.

    There is also the category of "rollover" box blades. I didn't look at them too closely, but I hear they are very productive.


    You know what I and the rest of us howling coyotes bought and how our biases lay. From what I read and my limited understanding of your situation, I personally would be going to the Tufline box. A photo from them would be nice. Fortunately, my dealer cuts me a low price on implements and he is only 15 minutes away so your dilemma was avoided.

    Best of luck and try and remember, the real measurable differences that exist between the boxes discussed are probably too small for casual users like you and I to truly detect. Make up your mind buy what feels like the best deal for you, and it will be a great implement.

    Jeff,

    I'm sure you'll be happy with the Monroe, but if you're still thinking, have a look at this (just stumbled on it here on TBN; http://www.tractorbynet.com/photoads...oto&AdNum=2060

    Jeff, Tufline also makes a hydraulic box blade if you are interested in one. Also, you can get a hinged rear blade. I have toured their manufacturing plant in Mississippi. They are nice folks. It is a family owned company. Any one of the top 3 brands you choose will be a good one. After you buy one don't start thinking "maybe I should have bought the other one". Just be happy with the one you have.

    I've appreciated the help from everybody! Lots of great info! No, I'm no expert, but I feel real good about the tractor I'm getting, as well as the all the attachments. Tried to get the price down on that Landpride, but even the out-of-state places couldn't compete with the price that I'm getting with my local dealer-a lot to do with shipping and a fairly decent price locally.
    Roy, you are right about those people at Monroe, seemed like good people and I appreciate them making the heavier boxscraper for me.

    Now I just have to get the tractor delivered before the boxscraper so I can get it off the trailer with FEL! It's coming soon!!!!! Can't wait to post some pictures when she comes.

    Jeff...MI.
