    Box blade size for Gen2 2025R?

    4 ft or 5ft. What you guys think? Will be a king kutter from Rural King since I have several gift cards for there to put towards purchase. So those are my only 2 choices. I run a 5ft snow plow and a 5ft mmm. Not that it has anything to do with box blade but Iím comfortable running the 5ft implements in this Tractor. Prefer the weight of the 5ft box blade. Just want to see if anyone else runs this and if they think itís fine or too much. Thanks.

    Dang. I read the title and was all set with the correct answer!
    54"!!!

    Then I read the post.


    If you are comfortable with 5', get it.
    You can always take a bit less of a bite if necessary. Kinda hard to make a 4' box wider when you want it.

    Im no box blade expert, but Im sure others will come along directly and offer much more wise advice than mine.

    I have a 4í, with my wheel spacers Iím 51Ē and it still performs. Donít have any experience with a 5í but Iím sure it would handle it.

    I agree with both posters comments above. Get super aggressive and both of them will stop it so get the one you are comfortable with.

    I had a 5ft box TCS box blade on my 1025R and I traded it for a 4ft Howes. When the box filled up, and it eventually will no matter how much bite you are trying to take, the tractor struggled with both power and traction. I realize that the 2025R has better traction than a 1025R, but still has the same power plant. Also, when scraping with the tines at full depth, your box will fill up very quickly and you will loose power and traction. I am much more efficient my 4 footer. In the case of box blades, bigger is not necessarilly better.
