I am going to my kioti dealer on friday for final prep of my new (and 1st) tractor. A LK3054xs TLB. I also have some land that I need to level and smooth out. My question is - would I be better off getting a box blade or a grader blade? The ground has some rocks and is grass covered. Any help will be greatly appreciated.

ronbo14; Welcome to the world of tractors, you're going to like it. When you use the term "Grader Blade", I assume you mean a 3pt. mount rear blade compared to a box scraper. Unless you get into super heavy rear blades for 100+ HP tractors they are nearly useless for tearing up compacted soil, they just ride up over the hard surface. A box blade on the other hand if it has scarifier teeth will tear up undisturbed soil plus you can retract the teeth once you've loosened the soil then the box blade will pull the soil to where you want to leave it. My thoughts would be to get a box blade with scarifier teeth first then when the budget allows get a landscape rake to fine grade with. In loose soil or newly spread gravel a landscape rake has amazed me with what it will do, so I use it quite often. Ask your Kioti dealer to properly size a box blade and posssibly a landscape rake for your new tractor and I think you'll be happy. good luck. Frank.
