Re: BX1850 & 5' box Scraper is that a good pairing?
I think you'll find a 60" a bit large for a BX. I have a 60" and use it on a B2650 sized machine and it is all the bigger machine wants for traction and at times keeping the front end on the ground. I am usually trying to cut as much depth as possible in hard rocky clay. I have had it on the BX and it will pull it but it's better suited on a bigger heavier machine. My box blade weighs around 500 lbs empty and if it's full of muddy sticky clay it will cause the relief valve on the 3 pth to kick on the bigger machine the BX is almost out to the limit with just the box blade, it wouldn't lift a full blade in that situation. Get a 48" you and your machine will be happier.
