Default Homemade box blade

Started to make a box blade a few years ago and have gradually modified it to meet my needs. Started out by cutting and welding some 1/4" plate I had lying around the homestead, doubling up the plate on the bottom half of the blade. Used some scrap 2"x 4" tubing for the frame and the 3 ph. Started using this configuration for moving snow a few winters ago.

In the spring I made scafers for the box blade using more 2x4 tubing with 1 hole in it so it is either 1 1/2" in ground or flip the scafer over and it will be out of the way. I also modified and beefed up the frame, painted it up with some JD green & yellow paint I had. Doesn't go to well with the Massey red but beggars cannot be choosers.

This winter I angled the front part of the blade so it would not dig into the ground when I adjusted the 3rd link. May have to breakdown and get some Massey red paint to make it looks nicer against the tractor.

Maybe 200lbs, I can lift it up myself. Looking into adding more weight down the road.

Very nice work. It looks Great. You will want a little more weight back there but you can make a little place on top to set concrete blocks

Very nice job. Maybe add some additional holes so you can control the depth of the rippers? I know depending upon what I'm doing I and the soil conditions I will have to change the depth of my rippers.

Wanted to add some extra weight to the box blade, so I bought some scrap plate steel from work, 2' X 1/2" X 5 '. The added steel weighs close to 225lbs.

Laid it out on the back side of the box blade.
