Rear- Angled Blade vs Box Blade

“I see that there are different kinds of blades, but what’s the difference?” You’re not alone in asking! Join Cole Shomaker, our Rocky Ford location manager, is here to help point out which blade is right for you.

A common question we get is the difference between a rear-angled blade and a box blade. Couple key differences. With the rear-angled blade, you have the ability to angle the blade, as well as change the pitch of the blade side to side. Common uses for this are grading, making roads, driveways, that kind of thing. Also, work really well for blading snow, moving light materials, that kind of thing.

The box blade is designed to grade and smooth. Also, it has scarifier teeth on the front, which allow you to break up hard ground, like rutted, hard driveways. You can break up the ground, as well as smooth it. You also have the ability to push dirt both forward and backward. It has cutting edges front and rear, but it is overall a heavier blade, so it will cut more. The rear-angled blade is better for softer, lighter materials. Will cut a little bit, but not as much as the box blade will.
