    Default Extra weight on a scrape blade

    When I use a scrape blade with my ym2000 it just bounces along on top of the dirt. I am thinking about adding a bracket on to the blade so I can hang a few suitcase weights on it. Any thoughts?

    Sounds like a Typ. Scrape blade Prob. If so your be hanging weights on it. The 3pt. only has pressure up not down. My BB will do the same on my gravel Dr. until I loosen it up and the weight of the Gravel will hold it down. Thats were I'll even drop the forks to make it squicker.

    More weight will make the blade work a lot better. My old scraper blade even has a four hole bracket on the back for mounting weights or a weight box. I don't use it much so I haven't bothered.

    Here is what I added to mine. I made the weights to hang on the front of my tractor but later bought a couple of suitcase weights so these got moved to my blade. They weigh about 50 lbs each. 200 lbs on there definitely makes a difference.

    I took a similiar approach with suit case weights so I could use them on my back blade and to add more weight to a box blade. I drilled and tapped the weights which allows it to slip on both attachments and lock them in place.

    You could also get a rod and wed it on and hang old workout barbell weights, there usually cheap at thrift stores.

    I put 350lbs on my box blade and that made it a useable attachment. Before it was a skipper not a ripper unless it was almost muddy. I need to hold it back now or it will cut more than I want sometimes.

    On the land plane that I built, I built a rack on top to hold 6 cement blocks, just under the max lift on my 186D. Works great.
