    2032r Rear blade size

    I'm looking at picking up a rear blade. I've looked at Frontier, Land Pride, and King Kutter mostly. The King Kutter seems to be about half the price and I've heard good things. I can buy one at Fleet Farm for $319.00 compared to $600-1k for more of a name brand.

    My question is, what size blade should I buy? I was thinking 60 or 72 inch, but i'm leaning more towards the 72 inch. I don't want to be over matched at all, however I want to make sure the blade is wide enough to cover the rear tire width (54 inches or so). I know a 60 inch covers that, but I envision turning the blade at an angle to move snow off to the side of the driveway. My hope is that it doesn't push me around to much at an angle and I lose traction. I'm planning to use this mostly for snow removal and grading/crowning my gravel driveway. Please let me know your thoughts!

    Kyle,

    I have a 2011 JD 2320 and have a 6' blade which I use to grade our 1000 driveway. This works wonderful. With your machine you will have no problem with a 6' blade. I purchased a King Kutter, but had difficulty getting it to fit on the IMatch. There is an angle to the top portion where it hooks to the top pin position. I ran into interference with the IMatch. I ended up buying the Countryline from Tractor Supply. This blade has worked for me and I could not justify paying for a Frontier. Greg

    I have the County Line 5' blade from Tractor Supply. It's a re-branded King Kutter. The 2032R drags it around easily and if I were buying again I'd go with the 6' blade.

    I would vote for the 72" as well. I have a 60" KingKutter/County Line on the back of my 1026R for the same jobs as you are thinking, and you are right...when angled, it just barely covers the width. Also, if it pulls the tractor around, you can always just take a smaller bite...more seat time.

    I run a 6' Frontier RB1072 on my 2520. Frontier and Woods which are the same, have the tilt feature. When doing snow or pullling rocks back to the drive in the spring. I pull the tilt pin out, which lets the blade float side to side. This keeps the blade from gouging so much on uneven ground.. Not all companies have the tilt feature, and for me, I wouldnt have one that DON'T tilt..

    So on a 1 series machine, you would stay with a 60" or do you wish that you'd have gone with the 72" blade? Would this hold true as well for a landscape rake?

    I would stay with the 60", it does what I need it to do. I think the 1 series could handle a 72", but smaller bites would be a given IMHO. For me, a 72" wouldn't let me snake in between the 2 vehicles in the garage (which is where the 1026R resides in the winter) and driveway markers would always get tagged by the wider blade, as I use the blower on the narrower part of the driveway. I only use the blade out by the road to keep the salt out of the blower and for clearing an area down by the garage that is near my property line so I don't blow snow over the line. As for the rake, we borrowed a 60" once and it seemed to work fine for cleanup after we replaced the septic. Other than that, not much experience with a landscape rake.

    I run a 2060 on the back of my 2320 so I think a 72" unit would make the most sense for a 2032

    I ran a 60" Frontier on the rear of my 2210, at times when the snow was deep or very wet it would pull the 2210 around, I ended up keeping it but honestly haven't used it at all with my 2032r. At full angle it wouldn't cover the tires of the 2210 on turns but it did very well most other times.

    Something to think about is if using the blade to also maintain a gravel driveway, is if the tractor is big enough to truly pull a full blade of gravel. I have a Land Pride 72" blade that my Dad originally got for our old Kubota L245DT (probably similar weight to a 3 series) and it would pull the blade but when angled and getting a full load would pull the tractor around. Also it seemed I had to grade more often with it and never could really get rid of potholes, they would get filled but came back quickly. In 2007 I got my 4120 and continued to use this same blade and I no longer have issues with the blade controlling the tractor. Also with the larger tractor I was able to completely remove the potholes and they have not come back and I find I now only have to grade about once a year compared to 6-8 times a year before. I do want to upgrade to a 7 foot blade so that at an angle I clear the tire width for pulling gravel off the outer edges and feel that I won't be going to big for my tractor. So what I'm trying to state is sometimes even if the tractor can pull an implement, if it's really too big for the tractor it then you may not get the job done with as high of quality and then you have to do the job more often....
