    Dave,
    Yes I can. This is the 6ft model and I didn't have any problem swinging it around.
    This past weekend I was making some trenches getting ready for next springs run-off. I had it completely tilted and found that I didn't have a lot of clearance for the lower corner. This was noticable when moving around and having the 3ph up completely. I had to bring the top link all the way in and even then only had a 3-4 inches of clearance. This was while creating the ditch/trench in some pretty uneven ground. While on level ground it was fine.
    If you have a specific area that you want a close-up of just ask. I am very happy with the blade!

    Thanks for the report, Rich! Did you actually have to pay $600 for that blade? It's a bit more than most others I've read about here on TBN... but it's by far the heaviest non-hydraulic 6' blade I've found that has all the tilt, offset, etc. features. BTW, I have a Tufline 5' boxblade that I'm real happy with.

    Grade & Plow On!

    That is one nice looking blade, I really like the way it offsets.

    Yes I did pay $600. Most prices here in upper NH are higher than most on the board. I don't know if it is because of the lack of competition or because we are pretty far away from the manuf. plants.
    Most prices from the misc. dealers around here (checked Me, Vt, and NH) were in the $100 per foot category. The first dealer I talked with gave me that estimate and it proved pretty true. But that was for non-tilt blades. With the tilt it added between $80 and $100. I didn't find anyone with the offset.
    Also most of the dealers around here didn't want to dicker on the prices. They had 1 or 2 blades and the price on it was the price they wanted.
    Oh well. Like the blade and if I had to hire out some of the work that I have already done with it, it has paid for itself. And that is only with around a months time with it.

    You made a wise choice. The price may be a little higher than other brands but I think it is worth it. I paid $415 for a GB1-72 about 18 months ago but it was part of a package deal. I bought a JD 5210 with a 521 FEL and a MX6 brush cutter. Also, the shipping charges were probably much less that for yours. I live in the Birmingham, AL area which is a couple of hours away from Tuflines's plant in Starkville, MS. Since then I bought a Tufline disk and box blade. They are supposed to start making a landscape rake, if they do I will get one from them. I think you got a good deal.

    Rich,

    Thanks again! Prices around here also seem to be on the high side. I feel it's a combination of little competition and a general understanding between the few dealers what their markups will be. Oh well, time to start shopping!
