With my homemade box blade, that I made 10 years ago. I put teeth on it about 5 years ago. The teeth come of by removing three bolts. I welded all this together with a cutting torch and steel welding rods. It has worked great over the years. So, I did some driveway work today and have much more to do.

  Works good!! I have to ask why only one side is weighted? Is it to build the crown?

The lift is on the weighted side. It lifts that side of the box blade first. So I put weight there to help keep it more level. It helps a little. If I want to crown a little, I put the weight on the other side.

1/2" cold rolled bar was used to make the teeth.
