I?m thinking about becoming a dealer for new box blades and
shredders. I don?t really want top of the line stuff. What brands
would be the best to go with? I don?t mind getting truck loads
at a time.

Find something that is produced close to you and you will be able to have good prices. You are going to find that the market for that type stuff is like this. The major brands and good stuff are sold by real dealers and the short line stuff sold by jockeys, or independent shops. Most of the lower line stuff (cheaper) is sold on price not quality. Depending on where you are I could make some recommendations but then you may find all the lines already have a stocking dealer in your area. Good luck, I have been in the ag business for over 40 years and what you are saying is the last thing in the world I would want to try. Not going to be a real money maker unless you are really shred and a hard worker.

Im in Texas and i dont find to many very close. I sell a lot of used tractors and everyone i sell they ask if i know of a place to buy a shredder or box blade. I buy up all the used ones i can find because they help sell tractors. I would like recommendations please . Even if they are not close because if the price is right i will buy them.

I have made bolt-on end plates for two medium duty grader blades. 12-15? inches to the front and 6?? to the rear. An angle iron brace from about the mid section of the front plate to the top of the blade. 3-4 1/2? bolts. My 7? and 8? blades have been abused and have served me well. Photos available if needed. Obviously, each one is different according to the blade, but if you are a bit of a fabricator, they work great! I carry a socket and end wrench in tractor toolbox and can remove end plates in minutes if needed. Lay them far away from work site. Don?t ask why! Don

You did not say what part of texas. BUT....

My local dealer sells Howse but the manufacture is only a little over a hours drive from us.
I bought a 5 foot cutter and his price was less than tractor supply quoted on their brand.

Bison products are made in Mexico. I've only seen one Bison product, a rear blade, but it was very well made. They don't seem to have a lot of distributors, and with you being in Texas shipping costs shouldn't be too bad.

We had a King Kutter brush cutter that I was happy with, and it was priced right. I think they have a pretty full line of equipment.
