I picked up one of these Brinly box blades used yesterday, fellow bought it last yr and doesn't really have a use for it after he finished leveling off his back yard.

He made up a 2nd scarifier for it with with 2x as many teeth on it.

Pictures show everything I got, in forward and reveres modes.

I tried this thing out tonight and I like it, hooked it up to my MF10 and it has no problems pulling it, blade is wider than the tractor by 3" or 4"each side, found that it works best going slow.

I didn't like the bracket for the block weight they had on it so I took it off, the blade seems a bit light on hard packed gravel but on loose grave it's good the way it is.

I think for me to use this on my driveway after a rain it would be great.

Doug, sorry I missed it before, but that is a nice looking blade.
The extra scarifier is :thumbs:
As for weight, I think I am going to add a few pounds by putting a heavy wear bar on mine. I have a piece of 1/2" plate just about 2" wide that should do it.

BTW, I moved this out where more people hopefully see it.

I bought one of these and have used the dickens out of it.  I freshen up my driveway about once a month with it and haven' had to buy new gravel for my driveway going on 8 years now.  Have fun. :beer:

Today I was using this leveling the driveway, pulling it with my Massey 10 when it caught something, stopped the tractor dead in it's tracks, tractor didn't stall, kept running and dug in the ground.
The blade is now bent, no longer at right angle when locked in the straight position.

Doug, Ouch! Are you and the 10 OK?

Mine bent like that a little, ended up being the bolt in the handle that goes thru the main pivot.

I'll post picture tomorrow, I'm thinking of welding it solid in the straight position, that's where I seem to use it.

 

MF10 has 3 sets of wheel weights on it plus 50lbs of suitcase weights and AG tires that are loaded, 290lbs extra weight on it.

Can I make suggestion ? Can you drill holes in blade and the draw bar so you can bolt  angle braces on . That way if you need to turn it around all you have to do is unbolt turn it an bolt it back together with a longer set of braces or two different sets of holes on draw bar. That way you wouldn't be tied into one position only.
