Box Blade Fabrication Project
Posted May 09, 2012 - 08:51 PM
In terms of a timeline for me to get this thing built and pics uploaded, I have a project that my dad asked me to build for him (dock support) so i'll do that first and see if he'll supply some of my BB material as a thank you
Thanks all for the guidance, you know that i'll be posted pics during and after the build!

Scarifiers should be able to come out or adjust I think. Wonder if putting bars if Front of a heavy tube, held on by angle iron pieces with a pin would work? Or would it just want to twist the bar? I have a plan somewhere from a Power King posting long ago, looked like a nice one. Not sure I know where it is now or how to post it here. A removeable blade edge on inside of back plate would be nice to have it wear and replace, rather than just wear out box edge. Could be just a heavy bar stock there. Three point hitch mount for sure. Not sure I have seen tilting box blades?? Maybe some commercial huge tractor one, but most are just blades I think. What is this "Sketchup" program? Still around and easy to use? I once bought a cadplan program and found way to hard for me to use and usually crapped out a plan part way thru it. No way to go back and fix. A simple program would be a great idea. Where can I get one or see a sample or add??
Sketchup is a Google program. You can download it for free and use it for free from Google for unlimited use. If you buy it ($595) you get Layout, which allows you to do the measuring like i've done in my image.

I agree on extending it back a ways, kind of hard to see what it is doing being so close. I may move the sleeve hitch forward some when I widen it. I also plan to add a 3-point hook up for the GTV at that time. I also want to add a cutting edge on the back side, sometimes you need to push material in tight areas.

The blue background is the 'sky' since you are looking up from under it.

Alan, they are welded on, not removable. No angle adjustment. Just a normal Box Blade like on a larger tractor.
Kenny, are the end panels removable and it there any l-r angle adjust to it? The way I put the teeth on mine, eliminated the angle, I've missed it a couple of times.
Here I have widened it this morning. Easily done with Sketchup. I also added a couple dimensions.
I still need to move the sleeve hitch and add the 3-point hook ups.
