    Default 60" or 66" box blade for 235

    Any of you guys with a CT230 or CT235, what size box blade are you using? 66" would completly cover my tracks with GP tires, just want to be sure I have enough tractor.

    Go with a 72in, my 235 handles it just fine with GP tires

    I have a CT230 and have a 72" united BB. I don't seem to have any issues dragging it when the box is full.

    I had a 72" box blade on my Ct235, it weighed 450lbs. I would have liked to have had a real heavy 66". Don't get anything less than a 66'', it will be narrower than you tires.

    When it comes to box blades weight is your friend. A heavy 66" would be a great option for you.

    I like it. It is not as heavy as some but I got it for a good price. If I used it all the time, maybe I would have went for something heavier but this one works for me. I thought about adding some weight to it but it has done a good job for me as is.

    If you have extra money or plan on using it a lot, a heavier BB and one with hydraulic rippers might be worth the extra money.

    I have a 72" Woods that helped get me through this past winter. It is not too much for the tractor with filled rear tires. I did get slid around some when the snow banks got larger. Next year a snow blower should help level the playing field.
