Some implements are just better to buy. I bet the steel would cost a lot more than $150 and then you'd have to get it rolled, and preferably broke(bent) to have a flush mount grader blade. The grader blade will probably cost about $75 or more by itself. If you don't put a grader blade on it, it's not worth building. Just like a bobcat with a bolt on edge for clearing snow. It would wear out in no time. I would think the cost of steel and forming it would be be closer to 4 or $500 and that's not including any of your time and other expenses to build it. Too light of box blade will bend up like a pretzel if it gets caught on something.

Actually I can get some of the steel for free. What I am talking about is not a bona-fide box blade but a steel bar with sides, weighs in at 200 lbs. Then I would have it set up with 2 plates welded to a Vee and just load some salt bags on this for extra weight. There is a guy who is selling a New Holland t2420 on ebay with a home made welded thing I am thinking of. Type in new holland t2420 and take a look at this rear 3pt setup. The tractor is very nice, parked on the gravel he has been grading with it. I do purchasing for a company and I buy steel and aluminum....steel plate isnt as pricy as you think.
