    Land Shark Box Blade?

    I've been looking at box blades what seems like forever. After reading a ton of posts I really like the 54". So my question is has anyone used the Land Shark BB https://www.everythingattachments.co...-bb-ea-5.0.htm. What are your thoughts and concerns?

    I purchased one for my 1025r last fall and used it once on a long driveway. It did a great job, taxed the 1025r a little with a full box but she kept rolling in 4 wheel drive and low gear. I recently sold it though to purchase a land plane in place of it. The land shark box blade is a quality made item though and if you don’t want to pull a Kubota orange attachment they will gladly change the color to caterpillar yellow if you request it.

    No experience with this one but one thing to throw out there as a general comment. I didn't look to see if you have an iMatch or any other 3pt quick hitch. If you are putting on something like this and taking it off a quick hitch is nice. This one looks like it has some adjustability to it for that connection so keep that in mind that there isn't a set spacing between the bottom hooks and top hook on an iMatch vs other quick hitches so sometimes things need to be adjusted. Some quick hitches have adjustable to hooks others don't. If you have a couple 3pt attachments I would try and adjust things so they are all close enough that you can just leave them alone from that point on and just pick them up. Sometimes you can find a happy medium where everything will work.

    I appreciate the heads up!! This will be my first rear attachment and no quick hitch yet. Which one (quick hitch) would you suggest?

    iMatch is nice I guess but I don't have one. I am too cheap I guess and went with the Harbor Freight one. That said I had to do some modifications to my HF one. Mainly the top hook was too high for that happy medium between my box blade and Heavy Hitch. Then there was an issue with the way they had the bolts set up to mount it where there was interference with the Heavy Hitch so I had to make a pin that I welded in place and now my top hook isn't adjustable.

    I too went the route sennister did and got the cheaper HF QH. I modified it also, I drilled holes in the ends of the bolts so they could be secured with pins for quick access in and out. I changed the top hook because like sennister said, they are too fat. Even after purchasing a new hook I still had less in it than purchasing another brand.
