 ballast box

Spike;
Is the 500. dollar box just an empty box on your three point hitch for you to fill with something heavy?
Even if it is already filled with something it always seemed to me to be a waste of money when a three point box blade will serve the same function plus lots of other things too.

I've had a Land Pride seven shank box blade for ten years or more. The only time it comes off the tractor is when I mount a tiller, rear mower, or a blade. I've never had the loader off since the tractor was new, so the box blade stays on not only for ballast but to move soil or gravel around. There are lighter less expensive box blades than a Land Pride, but you will never destroy one.

I don't know what a box blade costs today but your 500.00 would be much better spent toward one than an empty box with only one function.

Just my thoughts.

Frank.
