Northern Tool has ads for Brinley Hardy Box blade. It is only 38" and seems kinda light. Has teeth, most said in adds they lowered them to be more effective. Has place to put on a cement block for weight. Sleeve hitch only. That would not cover width of my tractor tires, so not so sure it would work for me. I DO have a Speeco Rear Blade, plenty heavy, not sure on width, but close to 48" I think and it never gets used, just setting around getting rusty. I'm wondering if would be best to just add sides and some structure to it, make holder for teeth which can be made or bought and turn it into a box. BUT, wondering if it works to have BOLT-ON parts, so could remove if I didn't like or want and still have blade? Would have to curve side plates to match blade and add tabs for it to bolt onto? OR, maybe better to pass back farther on blade sides and add the tabs to the blade for sides to bolt to? What think? Couple of braces from front cross-bar to the back of blade to bolt up, would think it would hold up pretty good. The whole front structure with the tooth bracket and cross-pieces would all be welded up and come off as whole assembly then, that should keep it strong would think. What say? Might have to set up blade, make some patterns and see what I come up with.
Forgot to say would be 3pt this way too, much more easier to use on other tractors.
