I ran across this over the Holiday weekend. It was marked down from $519 to $400 because it was distressed, but not used:thumbsdown:. One of the scarifiers was bent in the frame and there was gravel on top of the blade on the inside. That is some pretty serious distressing:mocking:. They said that there was no room to move on the price.

Cool! That means I have a whole pile of distressed and not used equipment in my backyard!

It's clearly used.:lol: Look at the forward lower edge of the box. This is a high wear area and it clearly has scratches from front to rear. But a good deal is a good deal.:thumbup1gif:

That looks identical to mine before I modified it. I did think it was a KK brand, but it didn't have a sticker or any markings on it. It was not iMatch compatible. Personally I won't get anymore implements unless they are or am willing to modify them to fit.

I just bought a cheaper, but used box blade

After surfing around here, I went to search Craig's List for one. Again. I saw this:

I called and he still had it, he sold his tractor and didn't need it any more. I abandoned my projects for the rest of the day and got on the road.

  • 190 Miles
  • $37.07 on gas
  • $6.87 on road snacks
I give to you the $350.00 used Frontier box blade (with spaces between the pictures :))

There are two problems with it, though... :(

The manual holder is broken and one of the ripper pins is missing. :tongue:

This is my first BIG Craig's List win, the thing is hardly used, the blades are immaculate. Time to order more quick hitch bushings... :good2:

Great find :good2:, that's the same as I have but I bought it new at full price. I'm happy with it even with only 3 rippers, but the stuff I'm working with is relatively soft and easy to dig.
