    Rear Blade Adjustment Preferences

    Blades have to be constantly adjusted, they are not a set it and forget it piece of equipment. I went with the pin type rhino and sure glad I did. I'm considering adding hydraulics now because of the constant adjustments needed when building roads. By what you need and don't settle for less is...

    1-2 Three Point Quick Hitch

    You'll probably want a cat 1, that's the most common size unless you have a big tractor and large farm implements. Cat 2 are wider than cat 1.

    Woods Blade feedback.

    For a rear blade to be efficient it needs to be heavy and adjustable. If you have that you can do a good job from pulling ditches to crowning a road. So with that you need a strong tractor. If you don't have either and have a smaller tractor I would suggest a pull box blade to pull dirt and level.

    Looking at MX5400 for my 80 Acres-good choice?

    For utility work the MX is great but for farming activities I'd move up to the M. I love the HST for grading, grappling and bucket work. I went the biggest most powerful they had with the HST. I don't farm but rather bush hog and plow fire lines, remove trees and maintain 1/2 mile of roadway...

    MX5400 breakout/lift strength?

    Are you keeping your rpms up? If so there might be a problem with the pump. I do believe the bucket is larger on the MX but still it should lift a full load of dirt. How does the weight of the rocks you're lifting compare to the weight of dirt?

    Homemade Chainsaw Carrier - Yet another idea

    I built this in haste a year ago, it's simple but actually works. It's never fell or was knocked off so I guess it works out. Thought about upgrading it but haven't made the time
