What tractor you running? I have the 2048L on my 1025R and it's great (although it would be nice to have more than 3 scarifiers)

5048l should be ok.
My dealer specifically pointed me away from the 20l series blades. It is their opinion that they are borderline for a 1 series.
The 2048L is rated for 25hp 2250lb max.
A 1 series with front weights and tire ballast gets mighty close if not over that weight.

Also the 2048l is only 265lbs., about 70% the weight of the 2048.

I think the 2048L is too light duty so thats why I went with the 5048L just my opinion eh

2048 works great on my 1025R. Has 4 scarifiers and the extra weight (over the 2048L) is a benefit in my rocky soil. 3pt has no problem lifting it... Even with a 200lb person standing on it ( yes we tried it).

I run a BB5060 on my 1025. Found it on CL for $400 frm a guy who got it on a package deal with a 3 series. He had never used it. I worried that it was too much but couldn't pass it up for that price. As long as I have plenty of weight on the front end I can do anything with it. Dropped all five rippers three inches deep in my forty year old driveway and could load the box without any problem. Dropped all five rippers to max depth and used it like a chisel plow to rip an old pasture before tilling. Used it and the Piranha tooth bar to clean and contour a drainage ditch last weekend.
