Thanks, I'll do that. I'll also try googling for a owners manual.

I pull a 630 pound/60" "Bush Hog" (made in India) Rollover Box Blade behind my Kubota B3300SU. (( 33-hp/1,800 lbs., industrial tires )) No drama going forward with either the rippers or scraping/pulling dirt. However, when I bulldoze in reverse I get nervous about the potential to bend the lift arms, which of course are engineered to PULL, not push. I ordered rigid, pin adjustable "check chains" from Stabilworks in hope that this reinforcement will relieve my apprehension.

I do not know about stress on Rollover Box Blades Vs. "normal" box blades but be sensitive to the POTENTIAL for stressing your lift arms operating in reverse with a heavy box blade.

Hey Roger,

You're entirely welcome to my poor efforts.

I'dve posted a link, but wasn't near a desktop, and one've the things I've not learned yet is the copy and paste on my Tab.

I'm just happy to be able to help at all.

Thomas

PS: Did I remember to say congrats on the new toy and welcome to the dwindling Gannon-owners family?

Jeff,

You are too right!

There have been numerous threads showing the crimpy things you can do to your BB mounts AND 3-pt arms by backing "uncarefully".

I doubt the Roll-overs are any more or less prone to this, but in any case, the only pushing we do with our B2320 is with the FEL.

In my reading, the rear blade is mostly meant to be used as a smoothing finishing tool, not a dozer.

I hope that those telescoping stabilizers do help keep your tractor safe- I've been eyeing them too :thumbsup:.

But we all seem to learn more reliably and best [if not usually cheaply] from our own mistakes.

Thomas

Unfortunately I don't have a gannon. I sold my king kutter xb, I never liked the looks of it on the tractor. I am looking for one at least 400lbs. I would like to find a gannon. There is only one I can find and it is far away and they want a premium price. It looks like the cutting edges are wore out.

What kind of tablet do you have, I may be able to tell you how to copy and paste.

You sold something because you didn't like the way it LOOKED on your tractor?? Can I borrow some money?
