 Box Blades

I am a new comer to this site and am hoping for some sage advice and input. I have a Case D45 tractor. I need a box blade to maintain & resurface gravel/staymat driveways. Many are long, on hillsides with slopes, curves etc. The surfaces most generally are very hard with tire tracks and pot holes. I live & work in VT, we get lots of snow and driveways are plowed a lot. They take a beating. What blades should I consider? I've looked at a Woods HB 72". Are there others I should look at and why? Thanks.

Welcome, Ron. Will your work include snow?

Ron;
Again welcome to the site, buit I think we first better talk about something other than box blades.
Maybe it's only my computer but when I bring up your link to box blades I get a web site advertising C and C contracting. OK, are you the same Ron as the web refer's to?
If so I think you already know all about box blades and are sneaking an ad in on the TP website. We just don't allow that here, we are informational only. If you would like to purchase some Ad space contact Dennis the site owner and he will be happy fix you up.
I hope I am totally mistaken about this and if so I do apologize. Frank

Ron you should have stated that you're doing commercial work and that was your link to your business for information only. No biggie.
We do the same type of work. Your best bet is to buy a Harley rake (aka PTO-driven power rake). I have a 6' wide one and use for prepping lawns, grading, rototilling (sort of), and especially maintaining highly-compacted crushed stone roads. They are not cheap ($7-10,000 new). But are woreth their weight in gold. In fact before I bought mine I used a 10' wide motor road grader. It could hold a light to what a Harley rake a 6' box blade can do. The box blade smooths it out and removes any windrows.

Back to your question, get any brand of box--cheaper the better---the sides will wear out. Get one that is wider than the rear tire width--probably if your tractor is 45 hp an 8' will work. My machine is 33 hp and easily pulls a 6'. Be sure it has a blade inside the box and pne outside. Another very helpful thing is a hydraulic top link. I made mine. I used my setup to do hurricane Katrina cleanup and could push downed trees into a pile, push debris into piles and oh yeah---move dirt with it.

EW;
OK, I'm not a moderator here and probably spoke out of turn to Ron, so from now on I'm staying out of such matters.
What caught my eye was that his link called "Box Blades" didn't have anythong to do with box blades, just took you to an ad for his company.
You jumped all over Tommy about the same thing, so????

Frank I'm not saying you are wrong.

The Tommy thing is totally different if you think about it. Tommy was trying to be sneaky and get customers. He sells partsa that can be sent anywhere and make a buck.

Ron on the other hand does the same sort of work I do--there's no way I'm going to get customers from here. Shoot, there's TP memebers a stone's throw away from me I have never even spoken to let alone worked for.

To me it would be like if you were looking for new wood lathe, and you had a link to your bidness

So if we met at an auction and I asked you which items you were interested in, would tell me to mind my own "bidness"?

Laughing out loud


Best of luck.

Thanks everyone for all your input. I had no idea that my link would create such an impression nor did I have any intention of trying to "sell" anything. I merely wanted some advice from the members to learn what their experiences have been with box blades. That's it!
Yes, I am a small commercial business owner and do this work for customers. I've always been skeptical of this attachment and never owned one. However, as time marches on, I'm thinking it may be time to consider buying one. I just don't know much about them and was hoping that this web site and it's members could help me learn more about them both good & bad, their experiences in using them and other advice so I could make a better and more educated decision.
Thanks to all,
Ron
