    Default Back Blade - KingKutter vs LandPride

    I'm going to be getting a kubota L3800HST soon and now thinking about what Back (Rear) Blades to get. Looks like my options are either LandPride or KingKutter. I'm looking for a blade that is 84" long - has an off-set capability and can tilt (though the tilt isn't mandatory).

    By what I can tell - the KingKutter seems to be built better than the LandPride. My Kubota dealer sells LandPride - but the upright portion that connects to the "top link" on the 3PT is only bolted on the LP vs welded and heavier on the KK.

    I'd like to hear your thoughts on which one you think is better. I'm comparing these two models:

    Always go w/ the name brand, Land Pride. Better company and quality.

    How long will you keep the RB? Which weighs more? Isn't KK sold at TSC?
    Rather than worry about the things you want but don't have, be grateful for the things you don't want and don't have.

    I didn't plan to do much of anything today, but by noon I was almost half done.

    TSC wouldn't likely sell an up model such as that.

    They are both fine blades, but, you should probably ask yourself "which is the better value?" Just because something costs less doesn't make it necessarily bad and just because something costs more doesn't automatically make it better.

    I have used both a KK and a LP. Since neither were offset type, I cannot comment on that feature on either of them.

    For that tractor, I probably wouldn't get either, I would go with the Land Pride RB25 at a minimum and really would not want one without the tilt and off set features. Just my

    In King Kutter, the OB-OT models have off set and tilt.
    They also have the HD or heavy duty models.

    It's confusing, but KK seems to have 4 levels.
    basic
    professional
    OB-OT
    HD series

    Not sure I have that precisely right.

    Land Pride also makes more than one grade of things. As always, make sure you're comparing apples to apples.
    KingKutter Rep posts on here from time and time perhaps he'll join in, if he sees this.

    I have a KK HD professional series and it is quite stout. Look under their pro models.

    I have had both and you can't go wrong with either, but remember that each makes several different models. For you size tractor and power I would definitely go with a Heavy Duty model.
