I had to do some work on my parking area beside the house. The rain keeps washing in sandy soil and then it gets muddy. I am getting a load or 2 of good gravel this fall, but had to remove some of what was there. I put in an ad for sleeve hitch attachments & a guy with a back blade called. He sold it to me for $15, I gave him a twenty. He was a really nice guy. After I got home, I decided it needed to be a box scraper. here's some pics of me usin' what was laying around (end panels are 1/4" plate from an old Satellite Dish Mount and the scarifiers are what was left of an old MH pony cultivator)

Might not win a beauty pageant, but sure works well (with the cement block).

Pretty tools do no more work than Plain-Janes anyway. And much less to worry about....no paint to scrape up. You got a great deal on that! BTW......Welcome to GTT!

Three years later and I'm still using it.
Decided the inability to use the angle without removing the scarifier bracket was finally an issue.

Ryan and I removed the teeth and cut some pieces of 1/4" high carbon. A little more figuring on how far down the teeth should be and we can finish it up with 6 or so holes.

The one I have looks like this, side plates are up 3/4" above the bottom edge of the blade and the teeth are down about 1" below the side plates.

Dotted the i's and welded the t's... Got to use it today.

Works better with weight, but out on the end of the sears adapter +80# is a little much. It worked fine with the Brinly on the GT6000, but I wanted to play with the ST16

The bank gravel parking area had gotten rutted and a bit of a mess. The back blade with new "dentures" worked great. And it's nice to spin the blade around.

Big thanks to my big (and little) helpers

I have one of these Brinly blades, but never used it.  Thought of using it, just never got to it, as I have a heavier unit I use.  But adding scarifier teeth to the Brinly would be easier than my heavy unit.  I was just thinking, if the scarifier bracket were pinned to hinge, then a metal piece on the lower leading edge of the bracket came against the side wall plates, that would lock it automatically to dig.  Then one could add a blade edge on the rear of the blade, and one could back push without turning things around, and the scarifier teeth would simply hinge forward during the back push.

  A locking spot could also be added to where you could pin the scarifiers up out of the way when you don't want/need them.
