I got a line on a 4ft Farm Force box blade, like new condition. Pictures look good other than it's attached to a orange tractor. I can't find anything online about them. It won't be used a lot and my soil is sand. Anyone have any comments on these? I seen some posts online that say this is sold at TSC, but I can't find them there either.

77 views an no responses. I think I will let this one ride to next week. If it is still there maybe the price will improve. Don't have a good way to pick it up yet any when.

Does it look anything like this brand?
3 Point - Tarter Farm & Ranch

From what I Googled,it was at one time a TSC item. County Line brand replaced it. It's not heavy duty,but a very light duty implement. From what I can see in the pics it is just that. If,from your post you aren't going to do very much with it,it will probably be just fine.

Do you have any pics or links, can't see them in the post? How much are they asking? I have the light duty Frontier and it works fine in my sandy soil. I just wish it had 4 rippers instead of 3. I paid about $750. Princess Auto have a five footer for $350 which looks good but I think five feet is too wide for the 1026 for what I'm using it for.

Looks like the type from TSC. I hope it fits a old style Imatch.

$350? I would snap it up. It has 4 rippers which make digging a little easier.

That pic looks exactly like my 48" King Kutter XB model. I purchased it about 8 years ago at Tractor Supply for around $500. I don't think it's really light duty, as others suggested. I've used it on my 1026 and and before that on a JD316 garden tractor. It weighs around 300 pounds I would guess.

One other thing I should have mentioned, since you want to use an Imatch, I think this blade was designed for Cat0 (pins facing in) or Cat1 (pins facing out). Even with extra long pins, facing out, I have to adjust my 3 point arms to allow for the narrow spacing. I'm not sure if that matters for your Imatch.

Well, you snooze you lose, it was gone. Actually it was gone the day it was posted, but they haven't removed the ad. So, my wife comes through, bought me a Frontier BB2048. I pick it up Saturday.:thumbup1gif:

Too bad, at that price I can see why it disappeared. You'll like the Frontier. I used mine a lot this year for digging. I pull the dirt into a pile then move it with the FEL. Works slick.

I am looking forward to this. I plan on installing a walkway next week using slate. This should really help that process.

Once I learned how to adjust it for deep digging with the rippers as well as smooth scraping without the rippers I ended up with a nice finish. The rippers will leave troughs that you don't really notice until after the rain washes them out. That is when I figured out to tilt it forward as far as it will go and take the rippers off and that gave me the finished grade I was looking for.
