I've seen some GT's online that have a 48" box scraper on them.  I know of a 48" Gannon Earthcavator that I'm interested in but I don't know if it will be to big for my Cub 1811.  What do you think?  Will it work?

Should! I have a 50" box blade that weights 140 lbs for Alice!

Kenny, does your box blade have the scarifiers on it? If so how many? and can you pull it thru the dirt easily still? Both mark149 & myself both (I'm assuming) realise working just a box blade that width would work ok, but not too sure on ripping hard packed dirt apart with that width. At least that's my concern anyway.

That is exactly what I was thinking!

A priority for me would be to cover the tire width. Kenny's sounds great with the weight of it.

It has 6 teeth on it and pulls them just fine through packed gravel. Just gotta have the traction to make it pull!

Sounds like it might work after all.

 

Does anybody know how much the 42" Gannon Earthcavator weighs?  I know that the 1811 can lift at least 300 pounds but I don't know how much a 48" would weigh so if I know what a 42" weighs I might be able to determine what the 48" weighs (does that make sense?)

Your 1811 will handle that Gannon just fine, lots of guys on the Cub forum have them.

One thing that stands out when I look at this chart is the change in weight from a FD 42" weighs 159 lbs. while the FDH 42" weighs 410lbs. and the FD 48" weighs 462 lbs..  462 lbs on a cat 0 lift arms seems like a lot of weight.  It looks like Gannon made a lighter weight version of the Earthcavator for the GT's but once you step up to the Cat 1 version they made them with a lot more steel to withstand the higher hp and torque of the bigger tractors.

Thanks for posting that documentation paperwork about the gannons. I hadn't previously ever came across that particular piece of literature before. Very interesting.

That is heavier than I thought. I am going to save that pic and make it into a PDF for the Manuals section.

The 400lb + one says it is for a Kubota & Ford and they didn't make a cat 0 48" model. I think 42" is the largest I've seen. Post up some pics if you can.

This Gannon is not a Cat 0 but a Cat 1.  I was going to switch it to a Cat 0 if a bought it. According to the chart they didn't make a 48" Cat 0 only a Cat 1.    Here is the ID tag.
