Take a look at the WOods Heavy duty "ROll Over" series. They look like a very solid piece of equipment. I've had good luck in the past with other woods equipment, but have never seen their Box Blades. www.woodsonline.com In the Landscape area of the website

 HEAVY DUITY BOX BLADE

Yes, weight is important in a box blade. I think my 6í Farm King is a bit over 700 lbs. and I'd have some difficulty cutting packed gravel with anything much lighter. Wish I could recall a brand name mentioned several years ago. I think the 6' blade was about 1000 lbs.

I'd look at the rollover blades, because they can be useful (but also are very pricey). However, I think that a lot of the weight is in the rollover mechanism. Of course in terms of cutting weight is weight and it doesn't make much difference whether it's a roll over box, heavy-duty construction or sand bags.

The thing about roll over blades is that they are very handy since the box flips over so the same operation can be done both forward and reverse. That can save a lot of time grading a long drive where the tractor can't turn around. However, for most ordinary owners who don't use a box that much, the high cost of a rollover box is a deterrent.

 HEAVY DUITY BOX BLADE

I have seen other manufactures with the heavy scrapers. I can not remember the brand. Below is a list of manufacures. The blade I saw had hydraulic adjustment on the rippers.
If the box is fairly heavy construction why not add weights to the top of the box? I have seen this done with a heavy metal bar.
This sounds like a job for the old metal garage sale weight set (bar bells). I would think you could mount something on the top of the box to hold the weights.
I liked the idea of the posts mounted in the center of the back hubs and using the weight collars to add and subtract weight from the back wheels.

I haven't resorted to adding weight to my scraper yet, but I wouldn't hesitate to do so. I would try not to get too carried away though. Adding weight also adds stress to the welded joints and 3ph mounts on the scraper. I think the 3ph mounts are fairly common failure points on lighter duty scrapers.

Where I do add weight is in my loader bucket to gain traction. In addition to grading etc., the scraper also is my favourite source of rear ballast. Problem is that it ceases to be ballast when it's in use. Suppose I really should fill my turfs or get some wheel weights.

Time to hit the garage sales Tom. Lift with the back straight and flex the knees. On second though maybe you better make the truss first, we don't want any hernias.

 HEAVY DUITY BOX BLADE

I know; I am guilty of thinking of the tractor as an extension of myself. It's an ironic comment, because Iím just getting over several days of a cranky lower back. It's a life-long problem starting in high-school gymnastics. I've also been guilty of slacking off my maintenance exercises. I'll try not to put the tractor on any exercises even though it's probably getting flabby with only having to lift a snow blower all winter.

Oh, the engineer I knew worked for Ford but I think of Ford & GM as peas in a pod. It is curious to consider exactly what is being approved in engineering designs for components that have been in general use for 50 years or so. I don't imagine it makes a really good career path to go for radical innovative designs for rear axles. Maybe lower production costs are the main things left to engineer.
