Box blades?

If I could get some input on box blades you have, good or bad....
I don't have 3 point hitch just a sleeve hitch.
I've been looking but the ones for my tractor look real light weights. Do they work?

Re: Box blades?

They are not as heavy as the 3point big brothers but plenty heavy for behind a garden tractor. Having said that, I broke mine a year or to ago right where it is welded to the hitch.
I rewelded it and havenít had a problem since. I decided I need a wider one for the projects I have planned so I picked up a second one on CL for cheap and Iím widening mine to 54Ē. Just started it this morning.
I will need to add a piece of flat stock across the bottom yet but it should work well although I could potentially scrape enough dirt into it to stop the tractor in its tracks.

Re: Box blades?

Mine is Brinley, but I didnít pick that brand for any reason other than I found them used on CL

Re: Box blades?

I have the 2 ends welded on, still need to add the flat stock across the bottom. Debating on adding a piece of angle across the top as the extra length may cause issues.

Re: Box blades?

Are you going for back blade or box blade. The box would add support to the extensions, or a strap across the welds say 6 or 7in. up with the bottom edge with the bottom edge. (I've always had a thing for over build)

I've started looking at used back blades(seem to more plentiful than than the box blades) This is were I get into trouble THINKING I could box it and add adjustable bar for the digger height.
Thanks for taking time, and the pics......
Would like to see finish product.

Mine is a box blade. You can see the holes in the pics and the ends are just bolted on.

Avoid the Agri-Fab. I have one and it has been welded and braced up every which way due to weakness. People say the Brinly is better

Brinly is a good choice for the sleeve hitch and it works well.

Re: Box blades?

I've been thinking about buying a 4 foot 3 point box scraper and converting it to pull behind like this:

I finished welding on the blade itself but still need to add the sides and tooth bar needs to be lengthened. I also modified the back of my Jacobsen to accept my integral hitch from my JD

Re: Box blades?

Well here is the ďfinishedĒ product. I say that but I already see some things that will need changing and I havenít even used it yet.

Re: Box blades?

Thanks for the follow up.... It looks great. I've been looking for a used one (Brinley), but the new ones aren't to bad Amazon 185 or so free shipping.
Been staring and staring at last pic to see what changes might be needed. Only thing I can spot that isn't my driveway......
Moving up front the Tractor has got to be your pride and joy. SWEEEEEET!!!!

This my project, and the tractor that will be using the box blade. I just got it.

Well I still need to get the tooth bar welded together and mounted and the wheels that I mounted on the back to help keep it from digging in too deep need to get mounted differently because I canít keep them running straight.

I had one box blade that I bought 7 or 8 years ago lightly used for $75 and then found the second one to make it wider this summer for $50. Not sure how well it will pull it with a load of dirt yet.

That tractor was a basket case when I bought it and took a while to put it back together. I had it all done in a few months but on the maiden voyage I broke the steering box so I promptly tore it back apart and added power steering from a John Deere 318. Iíll have to look around and see if I can find the pictures of when I first bought it.

Re: Box blades?



These were the sellers pictures when I first bought it. And to think...I almost passed it over.
