Rear Leveling Blade ideas?

Postby cavingreer » Thu Apr 20, 2017 11:33 pm

I actually posted on The Vine about this but I wanted to get more input from the board. The one thing I really need is some kind of leveling/grading/box blade to spread and maintain my driveway. It's gravel and B10 limestone. I don't want to get a center blade because that would require swapping with my belly mower which would really be a PITA. I have a Mule Drive not a Fast Hitch, so I have a center hole, available holes in the mule drive above the mower deck, and the rockshaft, so anything that would mount in the center or sides and lift/lower with enough weight would work. I'd love one of those original IH rear graders but I've yet to find one. I don't think the front blades would hold up to rock because from what I've read they were really only made for snow and dirt. Honestly, and I know someone will probably suggest this, IF I had a torch, welder and some scraps of the proper size/weight I could rig a drag blade up, BUT I don't have access to any of that at this time. So any suggestions on what is out there, where I could find it, what I could use or modify?

I'm in the same boat. Interested to see what people suggest. I am consodering something like the link above.

You can get a railroad tie and drill a couple holes in it and attach it with a chain. That wouldn't take any welding but not sure how well it will work.

Hopefully someone have a good suggestion.

Easy. Just get yourself another Cub with a dedicated belly-mounted blade. Then you can keep your setup with your first Cub and mower intact. :wink:
