Grading with 46" dozer blade om Big 10

Recommended Posts

I have never been able to do much scraping with these blades straight, it just digs in, the wheels spin and makes a mess. But when angled they will scrape a lot, and when they are angled all the way the front to back distance helps keep it level. This took an hour and a half, hydrolift would have been nice...

once I get it close with a front blade, I lock the blade down for a little down pressure and back up. It wont scrape much but will fill in all the little dips and divots. Nice job

Actually, although a grader blade is on my wish list, I have a 5 position Bolens snow plow converted to Simplicity hitch I'm thinking of converting. But what I think I really want is a york rake. My dealer has one with a pin hitch for only $700... I'm finally getting the hang of the front blade. I've always had a 42" RBT blade that I've made SERIOUS mess's with.

Not sure what you mean by a pin hitch Larry but to get something level with a York Rake it really needs to have the long frame. Mine was a 3 pt hitch model I modified to use on the B-112 at first, what a left arm killer, now it's used on the 4040, with tires mounted behind it, but even in float position on the 3 point it digs in or floats over stuff with the rise and fall of the front of the tractor.

These hitch like a trailer and have wheels and a crank to adjust height. Only for finnishing and raking out the larger stones out of the the gravel. I wouldn't try to level with it.
