    Need help!! Please help me choose a box blade and york rake size for my 1025R

    Im sure this topic has come up before... I also did some searching and not able to come up with much information.. I have a 1025r interested in a Box Blade and a York Rake. Interested in the Frontier brand but want heavy duty. Also I'm not sure about the box blade width?? I want it wider than my tractor but also don't want to sacrafice the performance. My dealer is ordering me BB2060 Box Blade, and LR2060L Rake with wheels. Any help or comment is appreciated.

    I found that my 48 inch Northern Tool can get loaded down so heavily I can not pull it. Lersonally, I would stay in the four foot range on a 1025r. If you want bigger, think bigger tractor.

    5 ft rake will be fine (what I have) and yes I would not go much wider than the tractor with the box blade.

    I got a 48" box blade. That's all the dealer told me that the 1025 could handle. I'm glad that's what I got and so far I'm happy

    I'll vote for 48 BB that's what I had on a 2210 a 48 worked great. I've got a 60 on a 2032 and it will stop it with a full load. You'll struggle to pull the 60. You should look at the BB 2048L the "L" is for limited lift 3 point which the 1025 is, if you don't get the "L" series you'll have trouble picking the blade or rake up high enough to get over a pile of dirt. I'd also stick with 60 inch rake, dealer sold me a 72 for a 2210 and I never could pull much with it. Was always disappointed in it. Bigger is not always better get the right size you'll be much happier.

    SJM01, Good morning and Happy New Year. Can say from experience, a 60" box can fill up fast and drag the 1025R down. I have a King Kutter 60" that I use with my 1025R, it works, but I do need to pay attention to how aggressive I am when using. Just my .02. Good luck.

    You're a wise man to get the wheels with your rake. When it comes down to some fine grading, don't be afraid to disconnect that top link or put another link between the two and rock the rake back onto it's wheels. It will knock off the high spots and not dig holes for some really nice smooth contouring.

    SJM01, is the Ligonier you put down, just down the road from Howe?

    As for a 4 or 5 foot box blade, it depends on how hard you want to work it. Depends on what the area is too. I have a 5 foot but it's not for everyone. I make it work for me. I wanted bigger when I got it back when I bought the 2210 I had. Don't know anything about a rake.
