    Box Blade Suggestions for 2520?

    I have a JD 2520 and would like to get a box blade for it to be used primarily for landscaping/leveling. I currently have the 46 backhoe with power beyond kit. Any suggestions?

    Also, when I remove the backhoe, do I leave the power beyond kit attached when attaching the box blade or leave it on? (I've never removed the backhoe)

    Thanks!

    If we are talking about the same thing here, Just disconnect the two hoses going to the BH and then connect the two ports on the tractor together with the short hose coming off the one tractor port.

    I am a big fan of the ROBB. (roll over box blade) Very versatile and built fairly heavy duty. A 60" unit would work out pretty good for you.

    That Roll Over Box Blade looks real interesting.

    I'm very happy with a Everything Attachments 60" Box Blade I have. I use it with a 2032R, so very similar tractor to yours.

    For the Power Beyond, as the previous poster stated, just plug the short section of hose back into the other port on the tractor. It will look like the picture below.

    Thanks GLC. I've been looking at 60" Woods and also Frontier. The Woods is a bit more expensive. Can you tell me the difference between the two?
