    I'm downsizing tractor but would like to keep my box blade

    Thanks for everyone's advice. For now, I'm thinking I'm going to just hang onto the tractor I have.

    I'm downsizing tractor but would like to keep my box blade

    My current box blade is a Cat 2, but I understand the 3046 can have either, the Cat 2 is an option as I understand it.

    Thanks. This is the kind of feedback I was needing where all I had myself was speculation and guessing.

    Bush Hog

    Linoleum, Formica, Scotch Tape, Post-Its, Melamine, Masonite, Super Glue, Wite-Out, Gleaner... All are either brand or trademarked names used interchangeably with the product they first brought to market. But when I write about my Bush Hog, it really IS a Bush Hog. But I've never had any problem...

    I'm downsizing tractor but would like to keep my box blade

    loggin, this dilemma came home to me again today when I went to one of our locations I hadn't been in a couple of months. After a winter ice storm there were many LARGE branches down in a 25 acre pecan orchard. (not part of what we mow) This is the perfect cleanup job for the Mahindra with the...

    I'm downsizing tractor but would like to keep my box blade

    loggin, I appreciate that guidance and the rated implement weight is something I do need to check on. As to why I'm (now "considering" after this thread and the answers) getting rid of the Mahindra -- none of my employees care to drive it leaving me as the only one using it and our work...

    Johnny, no, the JD 3046 weighs 3500 plus the loader, so lifting that on the 3 pt won't lift the front end. If so, I would just add suitcase weights to the front.

    The 3pt is rated to lift 2200# at 24" behind or 2530# at the hitch. My box blade is just over 1000#.

    I'm downsizing tractor but would like to keep my box blade

    I no longer really need my 75hp Mahindra and am looking at a JD 3046 Compact Utility Tractor. (46hp) I have a lot of implements, including an 8' heavy duty box blade that I would like to keep. My uncertainty is whether the 46hp JD 3046 will handle that blade without overloading the tractor...

    Compact Tractor Dealers Ignore Two-thirds of Their Potential Website Customers, Industry Survey Shows

    Jstpssng, when I'm truck shopping in person, I won't even give them my name/number any longer. If they won't answer my questions directly, are invasive, or even ASSURE ME THEY WON'T BE CALLING, I know that won't be the dealer for me. When I was shopping for my current truck, I explained very...

    Compact Tractor Dealers Ignore Two-thirds of Their Potential Website Customers, Industry Survey Shows

    PuffyC said: If all that was on their website they wouldn't have that problem ;) If it works when selling custom configured $80,000 automobiles surely they can figure out how to do it for a tractor and a land plane. PuffyC is absolutely right! Posting your inventory online is quick and...

    Compact Tractor Dealers Ignore Two-thirds of Their Potential Website Customers, Industry Survey Shows

    I'm almost 70 and I start all my searches online. Dealers that I have bought from have sorted themselves out by their willingness to respond to online requests. I do give them my phone # when I email them and several have called me back, resulting in purchases. I'm in southwest OK and I've...

    Block Heaters 24/7

    Expansion and contraction aren't going to be significant issues with regard to heating your engine. For someone who needs to be able to jump in his diesel at a moment's notice and go, leaving it plugged in makes sense. I let a diesel engine in a Suburban heat only about a half hour in -25°...

    Rim guard or not? Why a ballast box instead of boxblade?

    Interesting that this thread came up on my email notification as just yesterday I did the design sketches for a ballast weight I could build for less than 1/4 the price of any comparable thing I could find. (and yes, it has a hitch receiver built into the design, but I also have a receiver added...

    Clamp on pallet forks

    Though I am a huge fan of Titan Attachments, I wouldn't consider a non-adjustable set of pallet forks. I.e. the forks need to be able to adjust in and out to be different widths apart. We use them to lift all sorts of things and sometimes need them just 2' apart and sometimes up to 4' apart or...
