Which Box Blade to buy based on Tractor Size and HP
Thoughts, comments, suggestions, recommendations?? I just want to make sure that I buy a blade that won’t bend or tear up on the back of my 45HP L4310. Land Pride ’12’ series blade is too light weight for my machine. I wouldn’t put a Land Pride 12 series blade on any 40 hp tractor.
To strengthen the tube and prevent piercing, EA box blades have horseshoe shaped plates welded behind the bottom of the ripper shanks. The minimum grade of steel found in our factory is A572 Grade 50, which has higher tensile strength, shear strength, and yield strength than most commonly used A36.
The weight per foot of cutting edge required will vary depending on the type and moisture content of the soil, but other threads here have typically recommended 100lbs per foot; for example, my neighbor’s gravel driveway has been compacted to the point where it’s almost as hard as my concrete driveway (due to many trucks pulling horse trailers).
Is it possible to rent either/both implements (potentially without having to rent a tractor as well) for “yard finish grading work”? Specifically, would you be using the rippers down or keeping them up and using the blade cutting edge? I have been working on removing a lot of field stone and aside from the craters left behind I plan on doing some grading to smooth pasture areas.
Should box blade be wider than tractor?
They’re simple to connect to a tractor and even simpler to use: first, measure the width of your tractor and get a box blade that’s slightly wider than the tractor tires.
What size box blade should I get?
If you get a straight blade, it will need to be wider because it loses width once you angle the blade and you still need it to cover the rear wheels, so if a 5′ box covers the wheels, you may need a 6′ blade.
How do I choose a box blade?
For most applications, the box blade should be as wide as the outside of your tires, and the heavier the better; if you can find one with the U-shaped hitch, where the ball of the 3 point is supported on both sides, that would be ideal, but it is not a deal breaker.
Which is better box blade or blade?
The box blade is designed to grade and smooth, and it also has scarifier teeth on the front that allow you to break up hard ground, such as rutted, hard driveways. The rear-angled blade is better for softer, lighter materials; it will cut a little, but not as much as the box blade.
What do you do with a box blade?
Scarifiers are angled metal teeth mounted in a row on a crossbeam across the upper width of the box blade for spreading material like soil or gravel, as well as grading, leveling, or backfilling an expansive area of land for a driveway, lawn, garden, building site, etc.
How much does a 6ft box blade weigh?
Made in China, this box blade weighs 463 pounds.
How heavy is a box blade?
