    What brand did you get and how much does it weigh? If you are doing much grading, are you getting top and tilt hydraulics for your 3pt?

    I got a bush hog brand. I believe it is an sbx 84. It weighs 650 lbs and has six shanks. They took my old four footer in on trade. Paid me 100 bucks less than I paid for it five years ago. I do have a top n tilt already.

    B 2320 size box scraper? Can it handle a 60" or stay with the 48" ? Don't expect heavy use just driveway and landscape work.

    Here is why it is hard to answer you. I believe kubota recommends a 54" as max. That size isn't too common, so a lot of guys just move up to 60".

    But, since everyone's soil is different and most every job is different, it is so hard to say whether that 60" will end up working OK, or be a source of frustration. That is a tough one.

    I had a tractor that same size originally and that is why I had the 48" box blade. I would not go bigger than that. I had the 48" blade and that would work the tractor pretty good. I was using that for smoothing the driveway and a little bit a dirt work. I wish I wouldnt have purchased it after I had it. Tractor did not have enough weight for what I wanted it to do, and I wasnt asking for much. 48" is a big as you want to go.

    Hey Alaska, thanks. That's very good information and supports my inner "voice" that tells me the same thing. I've yet to buy a box blade for my B2320, but my instincts, based on using all my other implements, tells me you are right. I think I'd spend the extra $50 on quality, not quantity.

    There are variable here though, again. Dirt? gravel? sand? clay?
    Also, tires filled? R1 versus R4? A lot of variables.
