Seeing the recent thread asking for advice about box blade choices for a 1026R it reminded me that I've been thinking about getting a blade for my 2520.
Based on what I've seen mentioned I think a 5' box blade would be fine on a 2520. But would a 6' blade work? My needs aren't huge. I have about 400' of gravel driveway that gets occasional use (from my main driveway to my shed). I want to rejuvenate it and then add some new gravel to firm it back up. Right now it has deteriorated to a 2-track in some places and there are areas that hold water and get muddy because of settling and the old gravel being driven down into the dirt below. After that the blade would just be used for annual maintenance on it.
To me, it seems better to get a wider, heavier blade for my needs. Something with more weight will make it easier to dig in and smooth out the bad areas. I won't be pulling a lot of material (I don't think?), so it doesn't seem like the bigger blade will be a problem for the 2520. But I have zero experience with using one so that's why I'm asking.
Also seeking recommendations for a good brand and good place to buy a box blade. I definitely don't need a Cadillac version but I don't want junk.
