    2038R Box Blade

    I'm a new 2038R (and tractor in general) owner and I'm looking for a good heavy duty box blade for leveling rocky soil and I want one that would last for years. I came across Everything Attachments which seemed to be better than what I could get at Tractor Supply. I was looking at one weighing 660 pounds at 72", but it says it's for 50-70HP. It's model EA Severe XTreme Box Blade Category I & II V2.0
    (https://www.everythingattachments.co...-ii-xdbbv2.htm)


    Would the 2038R be capable of pulling this, or is the extra 100 pounds over similar 72" box blades really going to cause me problems?

    I have th jd 60 bought it used nut looks new.well satisfied. I use it for ballast when using bucket for med. to light work. Also when using bucket I use box blade to loosen soil. It does a good job.

    you don't want a too big of one, you might want to look at a 60". Need to match the implement with your hp and tractor weight. I got a 72" landplane and now wish i got a 60". When it fills up with dirt the tractor tires loose traction.
    Love my EA six way blade built like a tank.

    I have a frontier BB2072 box blade that I pull with my 2038R and it works like a charm. You can also find my video on YouTube of me pulling the box blade with my 2038R by searching “HomesteadJoe 2038R”.

    Here's a heavy duty unit. Most likely last longer than the tractor.

    IMHO, 72" is a bit large for these machines. You may be OK with it though, depending on what you do with it.

    I have less HP but my 2520 has no problem with this. It is definitely heavy duty too.

    Thanks for all the information.

    Would more weight of a heavier duty unit (900+ lb) be fine, if I stayed with a narrower unit (60-65")? I assume it is mostly the width that causes problems?

    Edit: Looks like that was operating weight which I am assuming includes the weight of dirt? I was looking again and most of the 60-65" units are in in the 450-600lb range.

    Do you have any weight on the rear tires like wheel weights or filled tires? Like I said before my tractor loses traction before it runs out of horsepower. For me a lighter implement means I can drag more dirt before having the tires spin. The weight shown on web sites is the actual weight of the implement not working weight of dirt and implement.

    I don't at the moment due to using a mid-mount mower and wanting to protect my lawn as much as possible.

    So it sounds like if I have wheel weights, I would have a better chance with a heavier blade, which I would prefer since heavier is like built tougher and I have rocky soil which could be tough on a lighter duty frame.

    Assuming traction wasn't an issue, is a 900lb box blade + dirt a challenge for a 2038R? Or would a 550lb blade + dirt be all the load I should put it under?

    Why wheel weights? Thinking that you would take them off and on? You won't, no one does other than to service the tractor when required for that part of the tractor.

    Without paying BIG $$$$, you won't be getting that 900lb box blade, new anyway. Second choice would be at a minimum of 120lb per foot width, so 600lbs for a 5' BB.

    Weight is your friend when it comes to grading, so as long as the tractor will handle it, that is what you would be best off IMO. Probably nothing over 700lbs for your 2038R and have no issues. I really good box blade for the 2038R would be this unit, an RO 650.

    Being able to get all the rippers in the ground with a tug on a lever is almost as good as hydraulic actuated units.
