I'd love to have a Gannon Blade! But that one is too narrow for my tractors.

Man, wished I had the money, I wold be on the road. The gannon is almost worth that then the tractor has added hydraulics on it to boot.

 No kidding. The west coast seems to have more Gannons, for whatever reason.

 Thats because Gannon was originally from California , Lamarada I believe ..... Gone now.... The folks out there just didn't want to work , so Woods shut em down and sold the factory ! Now the Gannon products are made in the mid west in like 4 different plants .

I didn't know that. You'd think with national distribution in something as large as a Sears catalog they would be spread out pretty well, though.

I don't know a thing about those Gannon blades.

What's the deal with them?

What makes them so desireable?

Here's a vid on one in action.  It will scarify and level like a box blade, but it will also scoop and allow you to put the dirt elsewhere as well.

Thanks OB.

Looks like a well built, well thought out unit.

It sure would be handy to have around.

I have one and used it behind my Sears just once.  I have a manual lift, and it was all I could do to lift it after about 10 times.  Hyd, or electric lift is highly recommended.
