Anyone selling a Category 0 three point rear blade or box blade? Looking for one of either at least 48" width (covers outside tire width of 45"). Any opportunity considered.

I don't know what you are using the blade on but you may want to consider a 60" so that tracks are covered when you angle the blade.  Get the right blade and you can put cat. 0 pins turned inside.  That's what I always did with my blade when I used it with Power King tractors and the Beav every once in a while.  If you think your tractor could handle a 60" blade, I would recommend it.  I would stick with a 48" box blade though.

Very good point by David Brown.  The blade narrow up fast when you start to angle them. The added sway of the 3 point adds to that also.

Right, that's why I said at least 48" wide.

I found a couple of 4 ft box blades in my area and I was wondering how my 1855 Snapper with 120lbs of wheel weights and Goodyear Super Terra Grip ag tires would do.  I know it's a very big tractor, but I feel a bit skeptical that it would work well.  Any thoughts?  Thanks everyone.

How much are those box blades?

Might have to do what I did, Casey! Widened a narrow box blade to what I wanted and added the 3-point hitch.

They were $450 and like brand new, but it's still a little expensive.  I heard you could use a 4ft category 1 box blade and just put category 0 pins on it and turn them facing in.  Also, putting bushings through the two lower mounting holes so the bolts for the pins don't work themselves loose.

I may just give up the hunt for box blades. Those will be kind of useless after the International TD-9 and T-340 dozers get home. :D
