 what size boxblade for 4410 deere

I just bought a used 4410 deere mfwd ehydro and I am
shopping for a boxblade. It looks like the king kutter is of reasonable quality and price but I dont know what size
to buy 5 or 6 ft ? it will be used for landscaping in mixed
soil types. It has fluid filled R4 rear tires and front
weights.
Does anyone have any sugestions? this is the first
compact tractor I have been around my two closest deere
dealers have never sold or even seen one and I would
like to get it right the first time
thanks

The general rule is your box blade should be wide enough to completely cover your tracks. I run a 72" box blade on my 4310 without any trouble so I'm sure your 4410 could handle it just fine.

I use a 6' 700+ lbs. scraper on my 24 pto hp tractor with turf tires. The traction can be a bit challenged but manageable. I like some extra width outside the rear tires. It lets me get closer to things and do minor ditching as well. It also puts about the right width crowns on top of my 14' drives without having to work two courses per side.

Weight is a rough measure of quality in scrapers--generally the heavier the better. Light ones don't cut some soils very well. The top-link mounts on some scrapers tend to be more failure prone and heavier scrapers are also generally more rugged. My dealer turfed one after-market make because some he sold came back with broken mounts. I don't know which brand though.

sounds great I will go for a 72 inch box blade but I
think I will do a little more shopping I see a KK blade
on Ebay that has been bent on the top link supports and
had to be repaired I would rather pay a little more
for something a little heavier

I have a 4410 and went with a Monroe Tufline TB266 boxblade. I considered a 5 or 6 foot and then saw Monroe had a 5.5. The 6 foot should not be an issue for a 4410.

rule of tumb is the width of the bucket on the tractor is the width of the box scraper. On rear blades one foot wider than the bucket and rake 2 foot. So a 48" bucket would be a 48" box blade, 60" rear blade and 72" rake.

kwschumm -- Which blade did you get for you 4310? I'm thinking of adding one to the package I've been working on (I'm the guy with the 'Seriously Considering a 4310' post), but was confused on the difference between a JD 45 6' blade and a Frontier Medium Duty blade.... Also, would it make more sense to get the optional 72" blade for the 430 loader and use it to grade the driveway?

I've got a Frontier BB1172. Seems to be pretty robust and it has done all I've asked of it, but I must admit I haven't really stressed it. I've never used a blade on the loader so not sure about that - sure would have been handy for our recent snows though. The box blade takes some getting used to but so do most implements. You've gotta develop a technique with all of 'em. The best thing for drive maintenance would probably be a drag scraper, which is a suspended blade riding on tires(check out Mark Hunstiger's pictures for one he made, but you can buy 'em). The problem with a drag scraper, though, is it's not as multi-purpose as a box scraper IMHO.
