40hp Tractor .. 6′ or 5′ Box blade?
I have a DK40 HST tractor and I’m looking for a box blade. It says your machine is 64 wide, so I’d get a 6′ box blade to cover the tracks. I’ve used a 6 foot on a 30 hp 2wd with no problems. I run a 6 foot BB on my TC33, no problems. If it starts to spin out, just lift it up some.
Right now, I’m using a 9-foot, 2300-pound blade on the back of my Kubota L5030 HSTC, and it’s working great! There’s a plate to add a gauge wheel for road grading, but I’m going to use it for a while first.
