    Is there a "multi" purpose box blade / rear blade tool? It looks like it would be fairly easy to attach or dettach the scarifers and sides. Or is this a ridiculous idea?

    Tractorsearching, I'm not sure I could find it now, but yes, there has been some discussion about the rear blades with removable end plates, so apparently they do exit; I've just never seen one personally. I'll bet someone on here who has one will let us know, and maybe post a picture of it. I'm not so sure about the scarifiers, though.

    I have a HD 6' box blade (traded up from a lighter unit with hydraulic scarifiers) with super HD hydraulic scarifiers
    B U T today I bought a 7 foot rear blade (King Kutter $199) expecting it to do some things better/easier than box blade. 1. Backfill ditches since it pivots side to side, 2. snow plow (I can turn it around and back up going blade first if I want and with 4wd don't expect it to change traction situation much and again it pivots to move snow to the side. 3. if I just want to do some light grading and not drag dirt any distance it is wider 7' vs. 6' so it covers my tracks better and with TNT I expect to get finer control without plowing a pair of furrows. My box blade is so big (how big is it?) It is so big that if I tilt it forward for fine dumping control (much finer control than 3pt) and go very far the front of the box digs a couple furows. With tilt and 7 ft width I should be able to dress a crowned road in two passes this will become more important soon. It is a requirement before a contractor will start construction on my site to have an all weather road in addition to water and electricity. I get to build/maintain the road.

    I was surprised that the HD version was almost $600 so did a non-typical thing for me, opted for the lighter one. I figure I can wear out three for only a few more bucks than one HD costs or alternatively gamble that the regular model is "good enough" and if I am wrong buy the big'un.
