    Rollover Box Blade Comparison

    I've posted separately about a box blade, which lead me to discover a rollover box blade.

    From my research I've found three brands, and they all appear to be nearly identical, even the weight listed is the same.

    Does anyone have experience with this implement, or perhaps other implements where many manufacturers use the exact same design? Perhaps one company is actually manufacturing all of these?

    I have a feeling my best bet is to find the cheapest one of these and go with it (new.)

    Does anyone know a reason not to do this? Perhaps one company is known for poor quality?

    To the best of my knowledge, there is currently only a single manufacturer of the ROBB (roll over box blade) There use to be
    several, but due to various circumstances (lack of sales and understanding I believe) they have been discontinued.

    So you are correct, get the least costly unit, because they are all the exact same unit.

    This whole tractor world is new to me, so please excuse my ignorance, but what would be the advantage of a rollover box blade versus a regular one?

    Thanks.

    Several things.

    Pull a lever to get ALL the rippers ready to work. Maybe 30 seconds if you have never done it before. Basically reverse to get the rippers up, maybe 45 seconds. All from the seat of the tractor.

    Or with a std box blade, you stop, get off the tractor and put each individual ripper down and the opposite to raise them out of the way. Time and ease of operation of a roll over is enormous.

    With a std box blade, to get it to work efficiently, you have to adjust the top link on a regular basis, so it is a constant off-on the tractor which takes a lot of time and effort to actually use the implement efficiently.

    With a roll over box blade, you set the top link once and your done.

    Of course there are always exceptions and how different people use their implements differently, but that is the just of it.

    Thanks for heads up on the manufacturing all being done by the same company. I found the Dirt Dog to be the cheapest so got that purchased this week. $1575 + shipping for 65". I was going to go with a 60", but I think my 2038R is right at 60" wide, and will be a bit more when I add wheel spacers so I wanted to make sure I could cover the wheel tracks. I am assuming I can just take lighter passes if I lose traction.

    Just as a heads up to anyone interested, Dirt Dog will paint their implements to match manufacturer colors (one shade off I was told, but not obvious), for no extra charge, just an extra week or two lead time. I know color isn't a big deal to most, but I figure given the choice f yellow or green, I would take green if the same price.

    Now I just need a top and tilt kit to fully take advantage of this implement.
