Good luck! Getting the hang of a box scraper can take awhile. I still struggle with mine from time to time.

Yes, there's something satisfying about shooting a good grade. Of course, I discovered that shooting a good grade for my drive a couple of years ago might have been very un-satisfying. A phone company cable locator who marked the line to our house for a new septic system did a little extra and marked the main cable location as well. There's a mark on our drive just beyond where I did some fairly heavy cutting for the new grade. Almost OOPS!

What I learned to make scraper work enjoyable is that the blade angle is almost everything in controlling a scraper. The 3ph doesn't work very well. You'll enjoy it after the first couple of tries and also love a hydraulic top-link. My wife sure hated to see me headed for the drive with the scraper on the first summer though.

I wound up with the King Kutter 6ft. I am adding 1/4 to the side walls (dont know why just doing it) Laughing out loud At this point I could not justify spending $300 or more for a name brand, I would of liked to but the CEO of finance has started to use her pull in our house to slow my toy collection down. I am just happy I have one now!

Ha!! Understood. I need a box scraper too, to level a woods road that gets washed out easily. I was looking at the KingKutter but with having to move each blade manually, rather than something that lets you move all the blades together, I thought it might be difficult to adjust. How have you found it to work for you? What are you doing with it?? Thanks. Bob

I will have to get back to you on how it works. Next week I will put it thru the ringer. using it for ripping up some food plots (instead of plowing more rocks up) Laughing out loud
And for driveway maintanance. I would say for the most part it will be used in agricultural applications, along with keeping the trails pot hole free from the tractor tires.

I have a KingKutter box blade that I use for driveway and road maintenance. It does an adequate job at both. It is a little rough on fabrication quality, and the scarifiers do need to be moved independantly, but it works just fine. I maintain about 800 feet of gravel/clay drive and 1/4 mile of road with it without a problem.

Brokenarrow; I spent yesterday afternoon with the 4410 and the Landpride box blade leveling out a site for a new building. I smacked into most anything you can imagine from rocks to tree roots and even a piece of angle iron that was a 6X6 web about three ft. long. I guess you'd say I gave it the test of it's life and it came thru without a scratch. It has indivdualy adjusted teeth, but a long minute has it done. I'm still amazed at how much dirt I moved in a little while. I'm going to post some other pictures in a day or two, so I'll post one or two of this project. Frank.

So, what's the general procedure you guys use with the scraper? I'm presuming you decide on how far to expose the blades based the severity of the job, and then gradually withdraw the blades as the terrain gets more and more level...is that pretty much it?
