 Rear scrape blades

I've decided to purchase a Kubotta BX23 and now I am researching implements. First item: rear scrape blade. Each of the dealers I am working with has quoted a different manufacaturer's product - and widely varying prices. I would appreciate comments and opinions on Darrell Harp, International and Woods scrape blades . . .

 Rear scrape blades

I assume that a 'rear scraper blade' is what I call a box scraper. I can't help much with the particular brands except that Woods is very well known. I have a mid-quality after-market one that's worked just fine for years. Depending on frequency and type of use, a person doesn't have to pay top-of-line prices to get an implement that's going to do the work just fine for as long as the tractor is owned. Some features are available that run up the price but are not especially important for most homeowner uses.

For box scrapers, I'd first compare the weights. For the same lengths, the heaviest is often the best. Heavy ones cut better and also are usually more rugged. The weight does have to be within the 3ph capacity though. It's common to choose implements that are the same length as the rear tire tracks. Mine is a foot wider and there are advantages and disadvantages that were discussed here recently. I consider a hydraulic top-link almost essential for box scraper use, so you might include one in the cost estimates.

 Rear scrape blades

I too assume you mean a "box scraper". I have a King Kutter 6' which I use commercially. I paid $360 from TSC three years ago. As far as quality, it's about at the bottom of the list, really. But it is extremely strong and durable. I still have both front and rear cutting edges in pretty much the condition as new. And KK's cutting edges are reversible, so at this rate I'll never have to change them.

Now if you are talking a true "scraper blade" buy the best--otherwise the blade pivot will wear out and you lose all control as far as grading goes. I have seen some older brands that have had the pivot literally twisted off from abuse or poor design/mfg. I prefer LandPride myself.

(As far as quality, it's about at the bottom of the list, really)
Laughing out loud, by how you describe it later in your post you would think it is just the opposite? LMAO.
I was all set (and actually told my dealer to include the $700 Woods box scraper in my delivery. I was totaly lost afterwards. I went to look at KK again and saw the landscape rake next to it. The price of the woods landscape rake was $700 put together and $650 (I assemble it) I could not stand it any more!!! I called my dealer and cancelled the order for the box scraper and have now decided on getting the KK rake and box blade. If I add the cost up for the 2 (kk's) they come to just over the cost for the ONE WOODS item. My better sense told me that I was spending too much ching on some of these items that will be used so little (compared to you for example) I am real happy to hear you are satisfied with your KK scraper!!! I hope mine will work out for me the same.
Thanks for your vote of confidence.

 Rear scrape blades

Thanks to all . . . and to make myself clear . . . I am NOT talking about a box blade. My first priority is to clean out some ditches and slope a neglected driveway. I am told that the angle adjustments of a straight blade will better facilitate what I need to do. Any suggestions about these "non-box" blades would be appreciated.

 Rear scrape blades

A couple of other questions - from seeing concrete blocks rigged on blades in the past, I assume the heaviest blade the tractor can lift is desirable. A previous post makes this point about box blades. One dealer recommended a blade one foot wider than the tractor for my ditching work. That also seems to agree with a previous post. Comments?

 Rear scrape blades

burton I use my landpride scraper blade to ditch and fine grade. You do not need any weight unless you are trying to cut some extremely hard soil.

Many times You just have to play with the angle of the cutter by adjusting the top link. The cutting edge does need to be in top shape.

Ditches I pull the blade all the way to the side so it sticks out as far as possible. Once it starts to cut it will add weight and tend to want to pull the back of the tractor into the ditch.

 Rear scrape blades

If you've got to move material around a box scraper or a rear blade with end-plates is good. A blade without end-plates won't carry much material on the blade--it wind-rows off one or both ends. True enough a box scraper isn't much good for serious ditching but I think they are better for general grading work. I haven't seen a mid-mount true grader blade on a CUT but that'd be interesting.

I re-graded our drive to extend the slope down to the highway so more of the yard drains to the highway instead of passed the house. To do that I cut off and stored the compacted pit run. Then I cut down the top and moved material down the slope. I finally built a new crown and re-spread and compacted the pit run. It was all done with a box scraper. No loader work here except for final compacting. I drag material around with the box a lot and I don't have serious ditching to do. If I had ditching work, I'd need a blade with end-plates. A blade would also be better for building crowns, but one they're built tilt isn't needed to maintain them unless one of the rear tires has to drive over the top of the crown. 3ph side-levelers give some tilt to a box scraper.

Harvey: You said "I pull the blade all the way to the side so it sticks out as far as possible...". I'm not familiar with this adjustment. Tell me more about how this works. Is it available on box blades only?

TomG: I can understand the advantage of end plates on a blade, but I don't think I've ever seen such a thing. Are they an OEM accessory for certain makes of blades . . . or is there an aftermarket solution for adding them? Thanks!
