Hello,has anyone used a Monroe-Tufline back blade, and would they be willing to share their comments? I'm looking at their model GB1-72 because it appears to be the more versatile of a Woods or Landpride with the same configuration, and the heaviest built. I have a JD4400 that I will be using it on, if this makes an difference. Any comments or suggestions would be appreciated.Thanks in advance.

Dennis - I have a Woods HBL72 I use with a JD4300. This is the old Gill line that Woods purchased, very similar to MonroeTufline GB4. Angle, tilts, offsets. Very heavy, (500-600#) and very useful. I would trust both Woods and MonroeTufline.

I have that particular blade. Overall it is a very good blade. I have had no problems with it. It is heavy and rugged enough to do job well.However, I would change a couple of things. The first is a minor annoyance, but when changing the angle it can be difficult to get the pin through the main pivot body into the blade plate. If I were to redesign it I would ream the hole larger and weld in a pipe for the pin to ride in. The pin would then always be straight. The second thing is that the blade pivot plate needs to be larger and have more holes. This is a problem when grading along a foundation or wall, because when you offset the blade you can't angle into the wall. You can pull away from the wall or have the blade perpendicular to the wall, but you can't angle into it. This problem will probably be an issue this winter when I want to "wing" the snow banks back from the driveway.I hope this helps.ps. I paid $500 for it here in Maine.
