My bx 2360 is inline a the dealer to be assembled. I want to get a scraper blade for it. I am thinking a 4' or 5' blade. I can see advantages of the 4' blade cause you can get into tighter spaces. Will one of these tractors handle a 5' blade? How heavy-duty of a blade do I need? Will a cheap blade like this be sufficient? Do I need to stick with equipment designed for a sub-compact, don't you have problems picking up regular equipment high enough?

For reference, I use a 5 ft box blade on my BX1850. When angled, would a 4 ft blade cover your tracks? I believe the lift issue is with ground engaging equipment like post hole augers, mold board plows, sub-soilers, etc. I do not believe you would have any lift height issues with a blade.

I run the 5' Woods RBC60 on my BX2360, it handles the 5' blade fine. You want the width if you run it angled. The only issue I have is even with loaded rear tires and the blade on back the rear wheels are pretty light with a full bucket of gravel. I intend to make a bracket to hang some additional suitcase weights off the blade.

Thanks for the replies. I was wondering a 4ft would be wide enough but nobody puts what the blade is angled on their website. I looked a woods and brush hog blade a the dealer Saturday. The woods was rbc60 I think. How much is the woods rbc60 and is it heavy duty enough for a bx?

I don't remember the specific cost of the woods since I bought it as a package with the BX. It is heavy duty enough for the machine and is well constructed. Woods has a heavier duty 60" that has the added ability to tilt, but the dealer convinced me it was too much blade for the BX.

I run a 5ft Land Pride on my BX 25 with no problem. I think you got the same HP on your tractor as mine--23.

To the OP; what is your intended use? Gravel, dirt, snow?

A 5 footer is big even for my B2920 when full of dirt or gravel because of traction issues

I would go 4ft unless your intended use is snow only!

We bought a 5' like the County Line for our BX2660 and it works OK for just moving gravel around, but if I was doing it over, I would buy Land Pride or Woods. We have other tractors for road maintenance now so we will keep what we have.

BX2360 + 5ft blade works fine for me. I wouldn't want shorter. I use a heavier box blade for counterweight if I'm doing heavier loader work.

A 5ft blade at a 45 degree angle is only about 3.5 feet across. At 30 degrees it covers about 4.3 feet.

I am trying to be careful about buying this blade. I don't want to buy a $300 blade and break it and have to buy a $500 blade. I was sold a woods rb72 and for another tractor, it was not enough blade for the tractor.

Yes it is 23hp.

A little of everything. This tractor is going to be a second tractor though for smaller jobs or tight areas.

Why do you say that? Can you see it flexing?

What is the formula for figuring that?
