Everything Attachments Box Blade Review

   / Everything Attachments Box Blade Review #11  
Is it wrong to expect a paint job to have some durability beyond two hours of use? It takes a lot of time and hard work to earn enough money to buy something like a tractor or this implement.

I think y'all are being pretty rude and elitist. That is unreal.

Well, yes and no. Its not wrong to expect it, but its unrealistic.

Based on everyone else's experience (which you might not have), box blades take an incredible amount of abrasion on any surface that gets dirt and rocks forced against it. The paint is gonna wear off rather quickly. Rest assured, any surface rust that might form will quickly get knocked off the next time you use it. You'll see a nice shiny patch there within a few minutes. If you're not going to use the implement for long periods of time, like several months, and you're concerned the rust might go deeper (it probably won't), as others have mentioned, just spray it with some matching Rustoleum before you put it away for the season.

Have you ever looked at the blade on a bulldozer or road grader? Anything that rubs against the dirt will become shiny with use. If the paint was coming off the parts of the blade that don't contact the soil I would upset but things that move dirt get polished. I put 19 brand new shovels on my chisel plow and two hours later their black finish was gone and they looked like mirrors.

I wouldn't worry about the paint on a box blade one bit. It will wear off, that is completely normal and to be expected. Not an issue. Same thing is going to happen to the paint on the underside of your front loader bucket, and that's another area that you should not worry about.

I don't think there's a paint or powder coat in existence that could stand up to box blade use. Just not possible.

Good to see some nicer comments regarding the paint wearing off your box blade. Being constructive and helping is good, not the opposite...
That said, glad you are enjoying your implement from EA, and that it is working to its purpose, as it should.:)

After you get comfortable using the blade and admiring the results, you will start to appreciate the "polished" look that ground engaging equipment develops. It's a visual cue that everything is working as it should. If the paint didn't wear off, I'd start looking for something wrong.

If the eventual appearance of rust on these polished surfaces troubles you, then get familiar with phosphatizing paint and use it after a thin layer of rust has begun. Amazing stuff, especially for implements that live in the weather & the dirt.

Last fall, I had my bb sandblasted, etched primed and painted. I was following advice from a buddy who's owned a automotive body shop for 35 years. I was a little disappointed with the project, as some of the paint came off within a couple of uses, just like the op. I understand where the paint comes off is in areas that are basically being sand blasted continuously. As long as the rest of the implement doesn't rust out I can live with that. I use my equipment hard, that doesn't mean I want it to look like junk. I spend a lot of money for it.
EA seems to like an A+ company to buy from.

A true example terrible paint jobs is most but not all trailers.

Congrats on a sweet new implement.

I just bought their lighter landscape rake in 72". Still quite a bit stouter and feature laden than any of the price leaders and only $150 more. I picked it up there and they are shipping a lot of implements right now. Your paint is pretty fresh and may harden a little more with age.

Nice, all you need now is a quick hitch. Just the thought of messing around with a tph now makes me cringe.

This is a short review on the Everything Attachments Category I & II Severe XTreme Duty Box Blade V1.0:

I called EA to get the correct sizing for my tractor. I wanted something heavy duty and EA had the best price for the quality versus my local dealers.

It took about two weeks for the implement to arrive at the FedEx freight hub. Pickup was quick and easy.Good luck with your new box blade.

The box blade was attached to a wooden pallet in such a way that the forklift could place it in the bed of my truck sideways. I was grateful for that and it made tying it down easy.

The box blade is very heavy duty. The metal is thick. The welds are consistent. There was no rust anywhere.

I spent about two hours grading my driveway. The scarifier worked well to break up the packed material. The blades scraped and smoothed well.

The only disappointment was that the paint job inside the box is already wearing away. I had a few larger rocks get picked up and I guess that rubbed against that area. I hope it doesn't start to rust there.

Overall, I feel this was a good value for the weight and quality build.

Pics forthcoming :)
Your box blade is a ground engagement tool use it don,t worry about the paint.Good luck with your new box blade.

You are effectively sandblasting the equipment. There ain't no paint that can stand up to that.
