 Box scraper help needed

I had purchased a ford tractor(1910 and now have a JD 4700) that came with a box scraper. How do you use a box scraper? Do you always set them level with the ground? What can you do with them?
Any help would sure be aappreciated.

Mike,

There are many threads in this section and the landscape board that discuss the use of the box scraper. It's been very helpful to me. Do some digging around and you'll find them.

For grading driveways and landscaping a box scraper with a hydraulic top link is one of the greatest tools to have for a tractor.

Mike, have you had any luck in finding the posts about using a box scraper? Let me know. If you haven't, then I'll post with the doc links. I've found them to be quite helpful.

I really haven't found too many that explained how to use a box scraper yet. Any help here would be greatly appreciated.

Is that a new electronic part on the circuit board in your pictures? Good lookin dogs though.

That's a pic of an over 18" bull snake some of our techs found when taking apart a test unit that had been in someone's home. It had stopped working. So they brought it in to work to figure out what happened. They found the snake when they pulled the cover off the circuit board. It was rather dead (fortunately) due to shorting across a high voltage section of the board. What a 18" bull snake was doing in someone's house and crawling into their appliance is beyond me. I think it was looking for a warm place to hide.

It scared the hell out of the techs when they found it. I've got another pic that shows it stretched out along a yardstick.

Mike,

Give the below link a shot. It goes on and on, but has info on setting the top link to get good results.

I'll keep looking for more.

Try this link below as well. Murf does a nice job of explaining the top link and lengthening it/shortening it to get desired results for driveway maintenance with a box blade.

Thanks for taking the time to look these threads up. I really appreciate it. It seems there's a lot of good equipment out there to make a job easier once you figure out how to use them.

I think I may check into adding a hydraulic setup on the back for various things like down pressure with a box blade, log splitter, back hoe, etc.

Is there a rule of thumb as to how wide a box blade should be and can you get one too big other than a weight limit?
