    New RB2060!!!!!

    Picked up my new RB2060 blade after work today!!!
    I'll get some picks on here maybe tonight. I could have waited to post this until I had the pictures taken, but I had an extra minute and couldn't wait to tell everybody!
    One thing I was afraid of though. When I got home with it I backed on the trailer and hooked it up to unload it but I don't have enough height to drive off the trailer with gate. I haven't tried pulling on yet but I'm guessing it may not work either. The only reason I think it might work is the back of the trailer squats down pretty far when pulling it on. It maybe just enough to work.

    My other thought is the lift arms that that pull up the lower 3pt hitch arms have an extra hole above where the are pinned on currently. The hole is smaller but I thought I could drill it out to the correct size and and lower the lift arms to those holes. Which should give me several more inches of lift. The only problem I for see with this in the top link might raise to high and hit the back fender under the seat.

    What are your thoughts?

    I have the same blade, they are very well built. Congrats!

    Anything you can do to lengthen lowers and shorten upper should get that thing up higher.

    My 3005 put the blade within 1" of the ground when pulling up on my 25' deck over gooseneck trailer. It even has a 10 ft ramp...

    Congratulations! New toys are great.

    Sounds like you have an "upgrade opportunity".

    Can you say top-n-tilt.....

    I've got the same problem with the blade I have. First solution was to buy box blade and sell rear blade...... That hasn't worked, at least the sell the blade part. The buy the box blade worked great..

    My next solution is to buy a FEL and a set of Artillian forks. That way I can put it on any darn trailer I want!

    Then I'll work on buying the power beyond and rear SCV for the top n tilt and then I can get through a low spot in the yard without bottoming out the blade.
    Taking the easy way is what makes rivers and men crooked.

    Keep me in mind when you get to this point. I can probably save you some $$$ over the JD OEM kits.

    Thanks. Buy the time I get to this point I won't have that much left...

    I was originally going to put a hydraulic cylinder on the blade for tilt, but then I saw your add for the top-n-tilt and that seems a lot more useful.

    Still waiting on those pictures....

    Have you got a chance to try it out yet? Maybe you'll get some snow put of this storm...

    Yes, better to have the hydraulic tilt on the hitch and have it to use with ALL implements vs just on an implement and only good for that single unit.

    Were expected to get 4" of rain the rest of the day and no snow. Bummer. Although with this much rain I can tell I will be using it to clean out the ditch along the road! She is getting pretty backed up! I'll go out to the garage and get some picks this afternoon. Sorry for the delay weather pretty much sucks here and I REALLY want to try that blade out!
