Finally got around to make some, ive been mulling it over for awhile. If i had to make another, i would make the side plate slightly longer. One added benefit that i didnt occur to me until i was using them is that when you are trying to make a pass at a pile of dirt, the leading edge helps it slice thru with alot less force. These really help moving dirt over longer distances without loosing it all off of the side of the blade.

Those look pretty damn good. Is that a 4 foot case blade? That thing looks like it would push dirt a lot better than the big one I have. Some flat stock welded at a 90 degree angle would
help stiffen it up a lot.


How much dirt have you moved with it?

Ill try to remember to take a pic of what i did this weekend. I moved 8 tons about 30 feet to form a dirt wall. Im having to shore up where is excavated on my property when i had my 1070, its starting to erode and i need to take care of it before it eats into the neighbors property. Ive probably pushed 100 tons just in this one spot allready and have another load coming this weekend.

I see that my pics actually worked, they only showed the url earlier. So i gues ill show a sneak peak of the wheel weights im working on.

DOH, just saw where you fixed my pics, i thought i had done it right.

This picture explains us tractor guys. The look on that kids face, you just know how he's feeling. How cool it was to sit on a tractor as a little kid. We are in our 20's,30's,40's,50's,60's and beyond - and we still feel like that little kid in that picture.

The only difference is now we have to wear pants.
