Homemade Box Blade

Recommended Posts

D-17_Dave
Spent yesturday welding up a new attachment. Had a local machine shop we deal with shear me a few pieces of .25" flat and added a cross frame and a old cutting edge I had laying around. So here's the result.

I had some basement drain problems back in the witer and had to tear up the front yard at the steepest part of the bank. I made this too help restore the yard to something presentable.

I had a lot of fun makeing it and even more useing it. What surprised me is just how good the 620 did pulling it up the steep bank with a full blade of dirt.:D

Ingenuity at it's best^! Now some paint & it will look great. I'm sure the 620 had no:D problem with it and the ag tires are a big plus for traction. Any fluid in the tires? What's the next project?

Rear tires are loaded. But I need to put the wheel weights off my 212 on it. Wheels still spin some when I mow. I'm preety hard on a tractor when I mow. No use sittin still, right? As for my next project, I was thinking of a mid-mount grader blade with independent lift cyl.'s like the big ones I used to operate. Alittle more ambitious but with the dual remotes on the 620 I think it's doable. Right now though I think I'll just clean up the shop.

Probably add some rippers to it when I get a chance. And some paint. Real busy here and project time is getting slim.[:0]
