Has anybody used a Woods RB60 on a series 1? I am wondering if the limited Cat 1 can lift it high enough for me to use the tilt feature.

Haha - I guess that I can answer my own question now that I picked up the back blade.

  • It is a perfect fit on the back of the series 1. When in the tilt position, the blade is a couple of inches off the ground. It might be nice if it had a bit more clearance, but it is totally workable on the limited cat 1. I wouldn't want it to be any wider or, or it might not clear. (Like I've heard on the forum - if you need to use bigger implements, then you need to get a bigger tractor.)
  • It is quick hitch compatible
  • The back/scraper blade fills a different niche than, and nicely compliments a box blade. It is especially useful for smoothing out ground that has been loosened with the box blade - spin it around 180 degrees and use it to back drag.
  • I find it much easier to back drag with the back blade than with the FEL bucket. Probably easier on the machine too.
  • I have to cut a swail this fall. If the ground is soft enough, I would rather pull a pin and change the tilt on the back blade than use the box blade and mess with the link on the 3 point arms... I think...

I have the frontier blade and love it for road maintenance. I’m also excited to use it for snow this winter. An angled blade is way more versatile than a box imo, and it takes a minute to get used to but in the right hands, it’s a mini road grader. Very useful tool. Also, cutting a swale should be a breeze. That’s a nice blade. Have fun

Thanks, and yes - I'm also looking forward to moving snow with it.

Closed this duplicate thread. Please don’t start more than one thread about the same thing. It gets very confusing as to who, what, when, why, and where. :good2:
