And bought a box blade, for the 8N. Sure makes straightening out the driveway a simple chore.

I have one just like that I bought about 10 years ago. I don't
use it commercially or anything, but so far zero problems with it.
I've re-painted it once as the powder coat wears/chips off with use.

I also have one just like it. I agree w/the others. It's amazing how much dirt you can move/shape w/one of those!

I use my box blade more in the winter than I do in the summer. I drag snow away from garage doors and scrape my concrete driveway with it.

Just got a used Bush Hog box blade at a consignment sale this weekend. It's a 4' one to use behind my compact tractor. Never used one before...any hints?

I find going slow does a better job of cutting/shaping. Adjust your top link shorter for cutting (if you have the scarifier teeth) or longer for smoothing.
