 Will TC29 handle 6' box blade?

I was using a 8ft box blade on my JD955 (32 hp) last week and had no problem moving the earth. The TC29 should handle the 6 ft no problem. I am assuming that it is 4x.
The main problem with the larger blade is that you forget that you have such a large overhang.
Someone should be more familiar with 6ft and the TC29.

King Kutter makes a 5ft/6in box blade that works great with the TC29. It extends about two inches on either of the R4's on my TC29.

 Will TC29 handle 6' box blade?

I use a 6' box at around 700 lbs. on my 24 pto hp tractor that has unloaded turf tires. Sometimes the tractor is traction challenged, but the problems are manageable. Slower ground speeds, smaller bites and putting weight in the loader helps. The 6' blade gives me about 6" of blade outside the rear tires.

I'd rather have some extra width even if I have some minor traction problems. The extra width means that I can maintain side-grades such as road crowns while keeping all four tires on the same side-grade so the tractor has the same angle as the grade. It isn't necessary to change the level of the box. It also seems easier to use the box to clean out shallow ditching along drive because you don't have to drive with one tire in the ditch.

There’s also a more obscure reason for getting a 6’ box. The width of my drives is such that one 6’ side-grade on either side leaves about the right width on top of the crown. I cut and maintain the crown with one pass a side. Working side-grades in two passes with a box blade gets tricky because the end of the box on a second pass tends to dig a furrow in the middle the first pass.

Thanks guys. My decision is influenced by the fact that everywhere I've looked, they have a 6' blade, but no 5' blade. Hope to have one this week.
Bill

 Will TC29 handle 6' box blade?

Bill -

I've got a Woods 6 ft Box Blade on my TC33D (w/CaCl filled R4 tires). I'm happy with the match up. I occasionally run into traction problems when in poor soil conditions, but taking a slightly smaller bite gets me through. I would NOT want to go down to a 5 ft model. As someone else mentioned, the 6 footer makes for a good couple of passes on my gravel driveway. I don't think I would even notice the few HP difference when using a box blade on a TC29 vs a TC33. HP has not been a limiting factor for me.

If traction is a major concern, you may want to look at some ballast on the rear wheels (weights or liquid fill). Remember, once the box is in the ground, it ceases to be ballast.

 Will TC29 handle 6' box blade?

I'm a contractor with a 33D and a 6' box with ripper teeth. The key is 4WD and two front weights. A potential customer told me "only a dozer" would cut down his hard-packed Michigan clay front yard. Long story short-- I dropped the ripper teeth about 3 inches and was able to pull right through. Got the job too.
