I'm thinking about building one.
Has anyone here built one, or have one?
Looking for ideas, and do's and dont's.
I would be using it on a Massey Ferguson MF14. (14hp hydrostatic)

Thanks

Mike, that takes all the fun out, building stuff is almost equal as seat time.

I've got a box blade that you attach to a sleeve hitch. If I can remember I'll go and take some pics of it.

No, didn't buy one. Just hadn't got around to it. Since then, I've rethought this, and maybe this weekend
I'll get around to what I have planned.
I have a small set of tines(sears I think) and a small dozer blade. I'm going to marry the two, but they
will be bolted together.
I have a landscape project I've got to get at soon, and this setup will get me through that. I think.

If you need more detail like measurements and what not I have those in pictures also. It was late and working from the laptop didn't help much when I was trying to upload them.

Encrypt, can you make your pic a little larger? These old eyes have a challenge with those. Looks to be a good build. Thanks for posting them.

Last week, I finally got around to this project.
I had a cultivator, and an old dozer blade. Spent an evening, and
turned them into a box blade. I've only spent about an hour using it,
but so far I'm happy with how it works.
The box is 3ft wide, and the blade is 42" behind rear axle.
I haven't taken the time to paint yet, incase it needed tweekin.

Looks like you used a good combination to get to your goal. That would be a very useful implement! Thanks for sharing the photos.
