Upgraded box blade.


Mr. Plow

Recommended Posts

Spent today converting my cat 0/1 box blade to a trailing model.    3pt doesn't grade well enough.   Just needs hoses and paint.

Nice job Steve.  Looks good.  You figure you'll need to hang some suit case weights on the back of it?

Looks good,  and I like the fact it’s all bolted on.   May need a restrictor in the hydraulic line for better control of adjustment??

I have a needle valve if I need it......1-1/2" cylinder is pretty controllable with 1/4" hoses and 4 gpm.

Pretty cool.   Is there anything you can't fabricate? 

Thanks.  This was a bit of a "throw it together" exercise.   I need to use it first thing this spring to cut in the driveway for my new shop.   Once the new shop it built and I can leave projects set up for a long time I might try something more challenging. 

Thinking of trying a 1/2 scale grain drill, or maybe heavy offset disk.

1/2 scale grain drill would be quite a challenge! Exceedingly cool when finished.

Make a miniature JXP plow.   😄

I have a few 8" Sears bottoms.......have kicked around a 2 bottom mounted plow.   If I could find some left handers (NOT) we could work up a tumble-bug.... :) :)
