Well, we have a box blade and it doesn't have the hinged back blade. If we want a more aggressive cut, we just tilt it a little more forward, a little less, tilt it back. I personally wouldn't pay an extra 200 bucks for that feature and to be perfectly honest, I don't like it. With a fixed back blade, you can use it as a drag by tilting the box back. It works great on spreading and grading stone. We've never had a problem with ours clogging up. I have no idea what that's all about, might be another sales pitch? PJ

Altho I have never used a hinged box, I don't really see a use for it..

Is it a good idea to have the back cutting edge of the box blade hinged? Is it worth $200 extra? I have a half mile of driveway that's about as smooth as a creek bed.

Are you looking to get a box blade to maintain your drive? If so, maybe take a look at a road grading blade. They work very good for maintaining a road. Here are a couple of links to check out.

If this is what your need is, these are great IMO.

Good luck
