So sitting at the shop today I hit craigs list yet again before heading home. I saw a ad for tractor parts, once the page loaded I saw a box scrapper. So I called went and looked at it and made a deal. 40 bucks lateri loaded the box three point parts a wheel from a bolens ht18 and a fuel tank from the same tractor. The box flips with the pull of a lever and engages the tines.

Any one want a bolens 26/12/12 wheel and tire I only have one pay for freight and it is yours. I have no use for it I was going to throw it on clist but would rather help out a fellow garden tractor addict.

$40 for a Gannon earthcavator! Thats a deal, I have been wanting one of those for a long time. When they do pop up here they usually go for $300+.

So I am a complete newb with alot of this stuff, what makes it so much better that a standard box with rippers? I did about fall over when he took the 40 bucks. That was all I had left in the play money though.

Going to work out a three point this weekend and use this beauty.

It's a well built piece of equipment that works very well. You won't have to reinforce that puppy to work it hard.

Its designed more for the GTs than a box blade. With a pull of the lever you can have the scarifiers down, or just a box blade, and you have a back blade on there too. Here is a link to a vid to its bigger brother.
