 Backblade

Looking for a 7' backblade(tilt) and a scoop bucket for my new TC33D. Dealer has Landpride but also been looking at King Kutter. The Landpride seem to be very pricey, are they that much better then an KK? What other brands should I be looking at. Little bit of snow removal and some light dirt/stone duty...

Thanks

Bob, I would check with the Midwest line. They seem to offer the best value for the money. I will try to post a link for further information. Generally, King Kutter ,Howse etc. from places like Tractor Supply and Northern Tool are low end implements. Companies like Woods, Befco etc. are high end. Midwest seems to be the best value between the two extremes. I was at an open house last week and the dealer had a Woods 720 cutter and a King Kutter same size. There is no comparison in quality. Of course the price is double too! You get what you pay for. That's not to say that the KK won't work for you if you use it occasionally and don't use it hard. IF you use it every week and the Woods lasts 20 years and the KK five years, what is the best value? JMHO

I keep thinking that the lower, maybe not lowest, end implements may be entirely adequate for many typical homeowner light-duty uses. Pros use upper-end implements and they have to be designed for continuous heavy-duty commercial use. Lighter-duty implements may stand up indefinitely in typical home-owner use. On the other hand, higher priced units usually have more features that also make them more useful tools.

A low-end blade usually doesn't have all the adjustable tilts and swings of a higher-priced blade. It likely lacks many adjustable tilts and swings, off-set, and probably can't be fitted with scarifiers or end-plates. It also probably doesn’t weigh near as much as higher priced blade. The weight is important and some people get a light blade and then find it won't cut their particular soil.

If you can live with a set of minimal features and are only moving snow and loose material a lower end-bade might work out OK, although my selection have been more along pacesetter's ideas. For me, I spend quite a bit of time with a box scrapper dragging loose material around and then spreading it. If I only had a blade, I'd sure want one that had end-plates. The alternative would be to do it with loader and I just get the work done faster and better with a box scraper.

I use a LandPride 84 in blade on my TC45. It is pretty rugged. I did not get tilting to the side, but the blade swings and adjusts easily.

Most of the time when it is on the tractor, I am using it for ballast for a heavy load on the FEL. This may sound funny, but it works, and you can hang more weight on the rugged frame. I doubt that you would want a blade this heavy for a size 2 frame tractor.
