Does anyone have experience with using the newer brinly sleeve hitch back blade? I worry that it will not be build touch enough for my needs.

It seems to have decent reviews, but I have also read that brinly' new stuff is substandard.

Most likely not as heavily built as the old ones. But it might be enough depending what you want to do with it.

I recently bought a used Brinly back blade to maintain my 200 ft driveway. It works great for moving loose gravel/dirt around. But it won't really bite unless you put weight on it. I had friend weld a box to fit the weight bracket on the back and filled it with concrete and stuck an eye bolt in it for ease of movement. Figure it weighs close to 70-75 lbs. It does the job with that setup and moist ground.

I had one of the newer ones on my HT-20 a couple years ago, with the down pressure of the tractor,I bent it up pretty quick,not made like the old ones for sure,but hard to find anything today that is

I am looking at an old brinly 3pt blade for my ht. I just need to figure out a way and when to get it. The fellow is not interested in shipping.

I have one and I think your better off with a box blade, for leveling/maintaining  a driveway IMO it works better.

Still need to put extra weight on it.

From what you guys are saying and what I have read, I am going to try to get my hands on a blade for a large frame. I need to hope over Lake Huron to Michigan. I'll just take my fishing boat! Haha

Or maybe even An earthcavator, that would be a wonderful find!

There was a guy up north of me (I think in Wisconsin IIRC) called Iron Man Fabrication. I bought a Cat. 0 back blade for an HT23 from him 5+ years ago. It is very well made, and is plenty heavy. I don't know if he is still around though.

I was thinking of putting it behind my 1050 not a LF.
I am just going to looking into getting a decent box blade for my ht20 when my wallet permits it.
