My manual lists a 54" box blade as the max for the B7800. This is an odd size, must be a Kubota peculiar item. I've got a 60" bushhog boxblade, I've only used it once (tractor has 2.5 hrs), but it seems to work fine, the B7800 handles it nearly as well as my 50hp John Deere.

That's hard to belive, I would think a 50 horse deere would pull a 5 footer like it wasn't even back there., beings my 790 pulls one very easly in 2 wheel drive.I'm sure that 50 horse could handle much more were the 7800 would be maxed.

My 24hp 4wd 3,000 lbs. tractor with turfs manages a 6' 700 lbs. box reasonably well. It is a bit traction challenged at times but I'd rather have the extra width since it gives some blade outside the rear tires.

wish I would of went with the 6 footer , having some blade outside the tires would make grading go a lot easier as Tom stated.

Only thing is that a Kubota B7800 IS NOT a 3000 pound tractor. Correct me if I'm wrong but a B7800 weighs less than 2000 pounds. What is the tire rear tire spread of a B7800? I can't believe it is greater than 60 inches. My B2150 has a Woods RB60 inch backblade with a 54 inch rear tire spread and I don't leave tire tracks. Kubota lists the B7800 rear spread as 53.8 inches. The 60 boxblade WILL cover the rear tire tracks and a 72 inch boxblade with 5 teeth is TOO BIG for the B7800.

Jeff's comment is probably true. The 6' box on my Ford is a bit marginal. I included the empty loader weight in my 3,000 lbs. The rear stance of my ford probably is right on 5' with R1's but with turfs it tracks a few inches wider then 5', so I have to have a 6' box. However, with the extra width I can work small drainage ditches without driving in them. I can also make shallow excavations such as a 6'x12'x1' trench for a raised leeching pit. The dimensions were given by a health inspector. Unless the blade is outside the tires I'd have to drive with a tire against the trench wall. A 5' box would leave pretty wide tops on the crowns of my 14" drives. Cutting fairly wide grades into side hills that are level (eg. for a trailer) takes less fussing with a wider blade.

There's all sorts of reasons that a wider blade is handy but managing traction also takes fussing and time. The extra fussing needed for a 6' blade on a tractor much smaller than mine probably wouldn't be worth it.

In selecting implement widths, the first priority is the match between implement and tractor. There also is the match between an implement and the work to be considered. For example, I have a 5' snow blower. A 6' blower probably would take me more time than my 5' one. A 6' blower would also take me three passes to clear the 14' drives and I'd probably have to go to a lower gear than I use for my 5' blower in heavy snows.
