    2011 Kioti DK45 HST

    Default Kioti 45 pull a 7 foot box blade?

    Folks,
    I"m looking a good box blade and the local dealer has a 7 foot Bush hog brand box blade that looks like new asking $775. I had planed on getting a 6' and new prices are around $750 on the MBX line. Is this too much blade for a DK45? I'm a little bit wary on the width? I forgot to ask the weight but I'll follow up.
    thanks

    It should be able to handle 7 ft if you want to go that wide. I use a 6 ft on my CK35 HST, if it gets full and I am going up a bit of a slope I do have to use my 4X4. I really should be using a 5 ft but got the 6 ft at a good price used. Your DK45 is wider and heavier but I'm thinking a 6 ft would be the "right size".

    I have no issues with a 6 ft on my CK27, so your 45 should not be a problem.
