Re: Box Blade v. Front Blade
- I just bought a box blade and it seems to work fine behind my 154. The
other day when I got it I drug the slush from the driveway and then
went to play in my sand box. I put the teeth down and it ripped
through the frost filled gravel and filled in some holes pretty good.

I have used both. I advantage of having the blade in the front is you don't have to constantly turn around to watch what you are doing. The really down side of having the blade up front is, because of the weight of the blade, it makes the front a lot heavier and harder to turn. If you have just a rear blade, its much harder to move dirt with and takes a lot longer. If you have a box/grader blade combination, you can gather and hold the dirt inside the box and move it to where you want it and not have it going out the sides of the a blade.Hope this helps you out.Larry H
