The box blade mounts to the 3-pt hitch. The teeth, which are similar to those on a track loader, extend below the edge of the blade in the rear of the box and scarify/loosen the soil at the front of the box. The blade maintains the grade, and the side plates keep the soil within the limits of the box (versus a grading blade which spills to each side and has a tendency to "ride up").

can these teeth be raised? in case you do
not want to go too deep. if i wanted to
just do a shallow pass, is this possible?

Yes. The teeth (5 or 6) are mounted on a rigid shank that has holes in the side to allow for raising/lowering by inserting a pin. They can also be raised out of the way.

On my box blade, each individual tooth can be raised or lowered. That helps when I need to loosen the soil only on the left (or right) side, such as leveling out a slope. I've seen box blades where the teeth are all mounted on a bar so that all teeth get raised or lowered together. Sometimes it's a pain to have to adjust every tooth one at a time, but overall I like the versatility of it.
