Hi all:
Here are pics as promised. I looked earlier and found it half buried in the snow that was plowed up. The beams are 6" Ibeam 13 feet long. The cross tubes are 4 x 4 42" long. The tubes are 8 feet apart. This method could be modified to fit the tow unit. KURTEE

There's a company that makes one from I-beams in V-shapes. Front one is forward facing and rear is opposite with point to back, BUT is a little extra wide to collect the gravel from the first V. There is a square section in middle that whole thing pivots on and connects to the 3pt. Only had big ones for big tractors and were expensive. I thought would be neat to make a small version. Can't recall the name of the company, but sure it is in trade flyers.

This is my Homemade box blade with teeth that I made for My Massey MF12.
One way it smooths the surface, flip it over and it loosens the surface.
Works best after it rains.
Can also be used to push gravel backwards.
