 Rear blade size

I have been looking for a good used blade for some time now and have decided to buy a new Monroe Tufline GB1. For the money and the quality of the the blade I don't think a guy can go wrong. My question is should I go with a 5 or 6 foot blade. My tractor is a 1320 NH 4X4 hydro. The tractor is 20hp. Any guidance would be appreciated. Thanks and Happy Holidays!

 Rear blade size

From what I have been told on this board, a lot depends on it's use. The one thing I would look into is the clearance between the rear tires and the blade tip. A six footer might not rotate. I was surprised by my tc29. I have less clearance for my old 6' blade than I had on my smaller J/D. The blade scrubs the tire when I rotate it 180 degrees and barely makes it past the tow bar. I could have put a 7' on the J/D, but not on this larger machine!

Cutter,

I will mainly be using the blade for some grading and dirt and gravel moving. Snow removal will probably be the biggest thing. I always figured it was better to have a little bit more than you needed than to not have enough when you did. Also I figured if I trade up in size I would already have an adequate blade. I'll have to see about blade dimensions since the dealer who sells them is located 150 miles from home.

Well, that is a nice blade that you are looking at. Since the blade offsets, as well as tilts and angles, it doens't matter so much if it is a 6' or 5'. You will end up moving the same quantity per pass, the 5' blade will just sink a little deeper. Yours ought to pull a 6 foot in most soil and snow, though the 5' blade will offset better, as an offset pull tends to cause the tractor to slide sideways. Of course the shorter blade almost requires some offset. If Monroe offers the end caps for that blade you might want to consider whether you are going to get them. I advise for endcaps because they make your back blade into an angling box blade plus make road crowning and ditching easier. Your tractor might pull a 5' blade with endcaps, but probably not a six footer.

Cliff, a lot depends upon your use. I have a 5' blade for my JD4100 (20HP), and I wouldn't want a 6 footer. Not because I'm concerned about power. I think it would pull just fine. But the 5 footer rotates full circle around the hitch and doesn'i rub anything. I could not do this with a 6 footer. Also, I found that for some of the angle chores like ditching, more length tends to get in the way. However, plowing snow or grading gravel is of course easier to do with a longer blade.

 Rear blade size

Jim,

Thanks for the impute. The more I think about it the more I think a 5 footer might be the way to go. I did use a friends 5 foot box scraper this past summer and it seemed to be the appropriate size for the tractor. As Roger stated, if Monroe offers the end caps or even if we manufacture our own, the tractor will probably handle the 5 foot better for most applications. A guy I know has a Monroe on the back of a larger ford that I believe is a 5 footer. I am going to run down and do a little measuring this evening. Thanks again.

Cliff, just for the record I use a 6ft rear blade on my JD4100. With R4's I can rotate the blade a full 360. Can't do it at full lift but the trick is to lower the blade some to level it out.

 Rear blade size

I think a longer blade can be an advantage. I did three jobs this summer that required both lengthwise and side-to-side grading. I crowned two gravel drives and built a 15'x50' trailer pad into a slight grade using a 6' box scraper. With the 6' blade, two cuts on either side of the drives left about the right width on top of the crown. With the trailer pad, three cuts were required, but I was able to overlap the cuts a bit using the 6' blade. Anyway, it's a bit of a trick matching up the angles and depths of cuts anytime several cuts are required across the width of a grade. It's pretty easy to end up with a saw-tooth. A longer blade can cut down the number of cuts required and make the work a bit easier.

When buying a blade, be sure to consider lift height. I bought a BushHog angle/tilt/offset model and tryed to put it on my 4200 with turf tires. The 3 point pins were so high that I could hardly lift it off the ground.

I'm using a 6' Land Pride blade on my NH TC33, mostly for snow. No problems with lift height or rotating it 360 deg. The nice thing about the larger blade is that even when side casting, its wider than the tractor. Helps when I'm moving the snow off the edge of the road. Jeff
