Default Box Blade

I built a box blade patterned somewhat after a genuine IH #40 box blade.I found the metal with the flange already on it at a salvage steel yard. The "box" is removable so I can use the sqare tubing as a multi-purpose tool bar.
I realize it won't "cut" dirt or cut below grade and I don't expect it to.But I think it will work for leveling gravel. It is not too heavy,,,I have a spring assist.
I will paint it IH white.

Those pics are great, thanks for sending them. Nice work on the blade.
Good to see that you sized it just right to fit on the coffee table .

Good looking blade you have there. Nice work. I would like to eventually go a heavier route like you did, but needed one asap, and bought a 38" Brinly off Northern Tool. For what i needed, it works so far, but I imagine I'll beat it to death eventually.

Thanks for the compliments.
Aternus, your blade is nice, if it does the job,that's what matters. I am liking the sleeve hitch implements less and less. Too much movement. I thought I would try the actual IH Cub Cadet style setup. But I suppose a real 3 point hitch would be best.The next tractor I build will have a real 3 point hitch with power lift. Meanwhile,here are some pics of the finished and painted box blade. It's a shame to put something so purdy to work.

Cub Cadet is a premium line of outdoor power equipment, established in 1961 as part of International Harvester. During the 1960s, IH initiated an entirely new line of lawn and garden equipment aimed at the owners rural homes with large yards and private gardens. There were a wide variety of Cub Cadet branded and after-market attachments available; including mowers, blades, snow blowers, front loaders, plows, carts, etc. Cub Cadet advertising at that time harped on their thorough testing by "boys - acknowledged by many as the world's worst destructive force!". Cub Cadets became known for their dependability and rugged construction.

MTD Products, Inc. of Cleveland, Ohio purchased the Cub Cadet brand from International Harvester in 1981. Cub Cadet was held as a wholly owned subsidiary for many years following this acquisition, which allowed them to operate independently. Recently, MTD has taken a more aggressive role and integrated Cub Cadet into its other lines of power equipment.
