 Box Scraper size for NH TC33D

I recently bought a New Holland TC33D (33HP w/ HST, R4 tires). I'm considering buying a box scraper to maintain a dirt road and driveway. The road is hard packed dirt/clay/fist-sized rocks ... ruts are getting too deep in spots, and the crown too high. I also will be leveling some rough spots in a large meadow (formerly a pasture, now mostly grass, weeds, and rocks). Any recommendations what size I should be looking at? How useful/necessary is a hydraulic top link for this type of work?

 Box Scraper size for NH TC33D

Hello John Mc,
I recently purchased a JD4300 (32hp, HST, R4s)and just bought a Bush Hog 72" box scraper, weighing 550 pounds. The 72" scraper hangs over about 6" on each side of my tractor and gives me a little more flexiblitiy when I scraped my lane for the first time this weekend. I have a dirt lane going up a mountain with roots and rocks throughout. I was amazed on how well the scraper performed. I've read a lot about them and the consenus seems to be to get one heavy as possible and wider than your tractor. At the moment, I don't need the hydraulic top link. I've been adjusting my top link shorter to get more cut or I lengthen it to use the back blade to do finish work. Also, I have a 420 FEL and I found that if I wanted to dig in a little deeper, I just would raise the FEL to place more weight to the rear of the tractor.

 Box Scraper size for NH TC33D

I use a 6' scraper that weighs almost 600 lbs. on a 24 pto hp tractor with turfs. Works OK, but it can be traction challenged, especially when using the scarifiers. The traction problems are manageable by taking smaller bites, going slower, adding ballast etc. I usually have to rip sod in several passes. Your experience should be similar. Quite a bit of my scraper work involves re-grading (changing a slope or contour). Re-grading usually requires moving material from high places to low places. To do that, I cut, drag and spread. Each pass requires at least three adjustments to the top link. It's handy to do the adjustments on the fly with a hydraulic top-link. I'm not sure I'd work in that way if I had to stop and climb off the tractor to make manual adjustments. A hydraulic top-link probably is less useful when maintaining grades then when making new ones, but they're still useful. For example, if there's a hill in a drive, the scraper usually takes a bigger bite when the blade first starts up the hill. You end up with a gouge at the bottom and a full box. It's handy to be able to nudge the hydraulics to lengthen the top-link a bit as the blade hits the hill and then shorten it up after the box is on the hill. I find managing the problem by raising the 3ph is less reliable. The 3ph usually raises too much or too late. I still end up with a gouge or a dumped load on the drive. It's great if a box does the work without a hydraulic top-link, but I find that a hydraulic link speeds up the work a lot and probably improves the quality. I'm willing to tinker with a grade quite a bit if I can fool around with the top-link adjustments. Without a hydraulic top-link, I'd probably declare a grade 'good enough' after not too many climbs on and off the tractor.

I have a TC33D with R4 and I am using a King Kutter 6 Ft and it digs great. Soil here is heavy clay/light shale and forest floor. King Kutter also make a 5 and 1/2 foot one which would also cover the rear tires but wasn't in stock when I got mine. I think when I measured the rear tires, they were 62 inches edge to edge, so a five foot box would not cover them.
