 L 48 kubota box blades

I am looking for a box blade for my Kubota L48 TLB.
I would like to know who makes the Kubota impliments.
The price range and manufactures seem endless and I don't have a clue as to which ones are better or worse,
I would like a decent Quality unit but don't know where to start. any help would be appreiciated

Woods makes alot of good equipment. For a box blade your going to need one of strength and weight if you want to use your loader too. You'll need the counter balance. The Woods sr or r series would work. sr 20 is 72" and the sr 25 is 77" wide 975 and 1035 lbs 45 to 70 hp box blade and the scarifer can be raised and lowered from the seat. The R series is a rollover, go from teeth to cutting edge 30 to 60 hp r20 72" r25 77" 802 and 860 lbs. My choice would be an sr series.

Thanks for the post lucerne,I have a loader so that will act as the counter weight? I see alot of posts about the tilt andturn kits. Does any one know how much they cost? will I need additional hydralics at rear for this set up? Currently I have a backhoe on back, and Cat-1 3 point hitch.

I think of a hydraulic top-link as virtually essential for getting good use from a box. Before I got mine I spent more time adjusting the manual top-link than grading and controlling the action with the 3ph just didn't work for me. After the hydraulic top-link I seldom touch the 3ph. I have a crank side-leveler so manually adjusting tilt isn't too. Yes, two rear valve controlled circuits are needed for TnT and a hoe connection is probably a power-beyond hook up.

I don't use my scarifiers often--maybe it's our sandy soil here but hydraulic scarifiers would be far down on my priority unless I had a spare rear circuit.

Weight is almost everything in a scraper since light ones don't cut many soils well and then scarifiers have to be used. The trouble with scarifiers in a lot of grading is that you don't want the ground disturbed below the finished grade level. When you get close you have to stop using them. Weight also is a good proxy for quality in a scraper and some lighter ones are prone to top-link mount failure.

A feature to look at might be a hinged rear cutter. Hinged ones allow a greater range of blade attack angles and also allow deeper cuts. I think many can be locked in place so they can be used like a fixed cutter box as well. I get by OK with a fixed cutter. Roll-over is another feature but they are expensive and aren't too realistic except for commercial work.

I think Lucerne meant that a box works pretty well as a counter weight for the loader. Without rear weight a heavy loader can tip a tractor on its nose. Improper balance also loads up the front drive and can wear it out or break it. I do carry some weight in my loader if I need more traction when using a box. The weight of an implement doesn't contribute to ballast for balance or traction when it's on the ground working.
