So I just saw this listed for sale about an hour from me... JD 5 foot box blade "only used a couple times" $400.

I don't know the model number and might never spring for a new one but I expect I could find an occasional use for it, driveway repair comes to mind. I have no idea the cost new but expect thats a good deal, even if it was an off brand.

What y'all think? I have a new 4 ft rototiller but else-wise I have only picked up a used single shank rooter (TSC brand) so far for my new 1025R. Should I hold out for a 4 foot or will my tractor handle it?

Attempted photo attached...
Thanks!

If that was for sale near me I would already have it in my truck, and I already own one. Pull that trigger fast son.

I paid 600 for the same one.
I would gladly pay $600 for a 5 footer, I've been looking for one for awhile and will probably have to buy new.

Can a couple guys put that in a pickup bed or do I need to take my small tilt bed trailer?


Edit to add: Never mind he has a mini skid steer to load it with if needed.

Got a meet set up for in the morning.

Not sure but it’s gotta be in the 400 pound range.

Tilt trailer, maybe some pieces of pipe or round posts to roll it if needed.
$400 is a smoking deal- even the TSC box blades are like $900 now.

For a couple times that thing sure got a lot of rust. Must have been sitting in a swamp :D I can’t tell from the grainy photo but those scarifier tips look rounded. I’d venture to say it more like well used. Even so it’s a steal and I’d be on the way to grab it
