    How wide of a gravel box for the 3025e?

    I am in the market for a gravel box but wanted to ask the experts if I should get a 5 or 6 foot wide for the 3025e or what ever your would suggest. Thanks for your responses.

    My opinion, and it's only that, I would go with a 60".

    I have the 5ft box blade and the 3025e handles it just fine. If I had it to over I would probably buy the 6ft.

    What do you mean by gravel box? If you mean land plane, I have a 60 inch for my 3025E and it could probably handle a 72 inch, if you were to use it strictly on gravel. If you get into loose wet dirt then it will probably not work as well with a 72 inch wide one. If you a leveling a driveway with it then by all means a 72 inch one would work. I went with a 60 inch just to be safe because this was a new tractor and that's what sales guy at the dealer said JD recommended. 60 inches covers the width of the tractor so I am more than fine with it, it just takes a few more passes to do my drive. It is also probably more maneuverable compared to a 72 inch plane. I use mine to help build tractor paths along side and in my wood line so being a little narrow is a good thing.

    Are you looking for a box blade or land plane? I have attached a photo of what we call a gravel box in the Midwest.

    I thought by "gravel box" he was wanting a Box Blade.

    Can you post a pic of what you're looking for?

    I have a 7' grader blade I pull with the 3025E. If you need 6', you should be fine.

    Sorry for the confusion with my description. I meant to inquire about a box blade to use on my gravel driveway. Since then I scored a deal on a used 5 foot box blade from a local implement dealer. I was on my way to buy a new one at a different place and saw this one sitting by the road. Paid 350 for it and am very pleased with how well it works.
