If I recall, your rear track is about 46". So probably a four footer, especially if you're two wheel drive. But you want a boxblade to be at least as wide as your rear track, outside to outside. If you're wider than four feet, a 56 incher might be a reasonable compromise. Just harder to find.

Thanks Greg. I have turf tires and my tractor is a 2 wheel drive..I got about 15 feet out my shop door before I got stuck in the snow .Can a person put snow chains on it or would that hurt it? Thanks

Yes, you can put chains on the tires and no, it won't hurt a thing - except your back crawling around putting them on. Smile

Given that you're running turf tires in 2WD on that tractor I'm not sure you'll be able to move much dirt with a box blade any bigger than 4 feet. One of those tings can put a lot of drag on the tractor when it is digging in, especially if you're using the scarifiers. Of course, you can run the tire chains on dirt, too. That will definitely help your traction. Are your tires loaded with water for extra weight and do you have wheel weights installed?

Any tractor, (named that because they are "traction" engines) will exert a lot of pulling force in low gears. Even a little 2WD such as yours can pull amazing loads - as long as it can get traction to move. The smaller they are the less they weigh and so they have less traction against the ground. Likewise with smooth tires as opposed to aggressive tires like ag tires. Anything that you can do to improve the "connection" between the engine and the ground will translate to improved ability to do work. The ultimate ground connection is a fully tracked vehicle.

Depends upon which fenders came with the tractor, and/or which way the rims are facing (scallop in or scallop out). Can you post photos?

Sounding more and more like investing in a boxblade for that tractor is gonna be a source of frustration for you (and probably a waste of money).
