Thinking of purchasing a United 448 HD 4 ft. box blade. Any feedback or reviews with this implement would be greatly appreciated. Also, rear wheels are 50" apart on rear of tractor. Does this make a great difference in results. Is there some way to offset it.

I don't know anything about United, but it soulds like it might be a little small for your tractor. What brand/model/HP is it (tractor) and what are your intended uses for the B.B.?

I have a Yanmar 1601D. I'm thinking it has 19 hp. Uses will be from grading hardened driveways to flattening out places where stuos have been cut off. probably all conditins of work will be extreme. Unit weighs 317#. Tke tractor weighs approximatelty 1600#. Do you think weight in the front will be required.

If you get a BB that is narrower than the tractor you are going to hate it.... gauranteed.

You need a 54 or 60 inch blade for that tractor.

I concur with DR that you need a bit wider blade to use effectively with your tractor. Some weight might be needed on the front, but I don't know for sure.

My L3400 is 58" wide at the rear tires. I would like to get a box blade for this tractor. Should I get a 60" or 72" ? What size will this tractor pull ? Any brands or models that would be best ? I maintain a 1200' and a 400' gravel driveway. Thanks, Ben

A 72" box blade would be fine for that machine. You've got plenty of power to pull it.

 box blade

I have a Kubota L3430HSTC and am negotiating with my dealer on a Box Blade/Scraper. The Kubota branded one seems a little pricy, does anyone know who really makes this. I have also read where Woods, Midwest and Buhler make very strong box blades. I am getting a 72" one and will be converting a pasture into a lawn over the next couple of years, and will be maintaining a long rock driveway. Any comments or suggestions on the brands I have mentioned, and or some that I might be overlooking?

Thanks!

I have a midwest box blade and I can tell you that they make a quality Box Blade. Most dealers can also get them in what ever color you need to match you tractor if that is important.
