Thanks, James. Your sage advice was indispensable. I appreciate your patience. You and the others are, indeed, "teachers of the craft". :D
nice tractor. same base tractor as mine minus the color, hood styling, and loader. well and mine is a syncro shuttle. is it a 4cyl mitsubishi or one of the new LS built engines?
It's a Mitsu, Nick. Got some good use out of her yesterday despite heavy rain and deep mud. Still not used to dragging the box blade. I'm making more mess than progress, but it's getting better.
did it come with draft control? i find i can drop my box blad all the way down then control how much it is dragging with the draft control. i let is dig then pull back on the draft lever until i am just dragging around a box full and let it fill in pot holes and ripples on its own.

I had a buddy build a road scraper/drag blade/whatever you want to call it. It works much better than a box blade for this purpose. Land pride also makes one where you can vary the depth of cut slightly which might be nice in some cases. The blades on mine are fixed with regard to depth.
Your thread has been very helpful to me. I have a Kubota L3000DT that was my dads. It doesn't have a FEL. I considered adding one to it but am leaning towards getting a new tractor with a FEL. I like the Kubota L3240 but it is pricey. I'm looking at the Boomer 30 next but drove a Kioti CK35 HST today. I liked the Kiote but my kept hitting the hydraulic filter when I pressed the back of the HST peddle to back up. This might keep me away from the Kioti but liked it otherwise.
Are you moving your foot or just pushing down with your heel when reversing? I haven't seen others mention your problem and I never had it with my smaller CK20. What size shoe?Quote:

Good luck in your search.
