    Box Blade 6ft vs. 7 ft

    So upgraded from my 2032R to a 4105 (love it) and got rid of my 5 ft box blade since it's to small.

    Looking at a 6 foot but then got to thinking I could do more with a 7 foot.

    Am I going to big? This 4105 has the weight ??

    In heavy stuff a 5' will drag the 4105 down pretty bad. I would stick with 6'.

    My recommendation would be to get a 72" or maybe an 84" ROBB. If you want to not have to deal with cost of hydraulic scarifiers, or manually setting std manual scarifiers I would go with a ROBB.

    The 3 units that I have, have all served me well.

    I will probably stay with a 6...

    But the 5 foot did not drag my 2032R down in heavy stuff at all, built a few trails from scratch with it... So can't see how a 4105 would be bogged by it, anyway the 5 foot is too small for the 4105 since it's wheel base is wider

    Will stick with a 6 foot

    That's nice but WAY out of my price range for trail maintenance
