Default CountyLine 5' Blade

Ok, bought a new toy last week. In anticipation of the snow that was coming, I went to Tractor Supply and picked up a 5' CountyLine Blade. Nothing special, or over-engineered, but totally functional. Needed it to plow my long drive, and something small and easy for my Jinma to be able to use. For snow, I could have gone with a 6', but once I start moving dirt I didn't want to overload either the blade or the tractor, so I think this was the right choice.
Worked great on last weeks snow fall here in Indiana. Had about 5". Nothing too big yet. Hopefully we get more so I can play!. Sadly, You'll notice in the pics I am having to keep my tractor outside this winter. The garage is too full. Hopefully by next year it will be cleaned out again and I can put it back in the garage, or have a pole barn to store it in. (second choice is best option for me)

Ive ponder the back blade for my GC2300. How well does it plow? Did you reverse the blade and plow backwards?

Looks like my King Kutter I bought used a few mos ago. I was using it today on 1st angle setting doing off a neighbors concrete, church parking lot and my concrete drive...It works great. I'm thinking about adding 1 or 2 --8" concrete blocks just for some hold down pressure.. I was able to cut !'m guessing 1/2" of packed snow on most surfaces today. Not everywhere but alot.... I was surprised how well it did with no down pressure compared to front blade having down pressure... I also noticed the straighter the blade was standing up it did a better job than when I had a angle. I thought the angle would work better like a chisel...Sure not the first time I was wrong and for some reason just guessing it won't be my last...

Good luck with your new plow !!

You can never have to much garage space.

Cjax nice looking machine..

Etcallhome adjust your top link so the top of the blade tilts back and it will dig in more if you tilt the top of the blade forwards it will dig in less.

Hey neighbor, we got that same snow over here in Brown County. Like you, I had been waiting for it to get some "playing" time in on the tractor.

If I were you, I'd just put that loader to work clearing out the garage for tractor space. Of course, depending on what's in there, other family members might make you sleep outside with the tractor if you did.

TW, More Hoosiers! Good to see you on here. The boss would be mad if I kept the boat outside over the winter. (Way too many toys)

With the blade at the first setting off center (angled) and the blade very straight (top and bottom even/vertical) it plowed very well. Nothing rolling over the top. (Wasn't a deep snow).

etcallhome, yours looks almost identical to mine. Was it a TSC brand?

Can't wait to use it this spring to cut/smooth some uneven spots holding water in the back yard. Also thinking of cutting in a dirt track for some go karts (about a 5-acre track) but we'll see how that goes.. Hmm, maybe I'll need a good box blade too....

CJ

I had high hopes that my 5' back blade would do some ground leveling, but I found it very tedious and not very effective. I bought a 5' box blade off Craigs List a month later, and man! that thing really digs! In 1 hour I did more with the box blade than I accomplished after 5 hours with the back blade... and it looked better, too.

cjax I believe mine came from TSC when first bought....I bought this one used from a used equipment dealer...
Strange thing he also sales new King Kutter ...He may have sold new ,but I'm guessing he didn't because I had talked to him last fall a yr ago and he was just getting the King Kutter line of equipment.

cjax and etcallhome,
I have a Country Line 5' Box Blade. A friend has a 6' King Kutter Box Blade. He bought his from TSC 2 years ago. I bought mine from the same TSC store this fall. Other then his being a foot longer. They are the same color, same scarffers, everything. Maybe Country Line is a renamed king Kutter.

cjax, I have a 254 NorTrac. How does the 5' back blade pull. I was thinking of getting the 6' this spring. Just woundering if it would be too much, if I run it mostly angled. The 5' box blade is no problem for my tractor.
