When you get a box blade, is it supposed to cover your tracks? My tractor is 6.5' wide... is a typical 6' good or do I need 7'?
What size tractor?I run a seven foot box on the JD.
It is approx 6 inches wider than the rear tires.
I like the uniformity it leaves behind.

Biggest thing I'm wondering is whether it's more important to cover your tracks, or more important to be able to drive your tires right next to trees without the box blade catching the tree, as I have many that I am trying to clean up.
I would go for just covering the tracks if you want to be really close to things, other wise go for 8-10ft to get things done.60 horse Ford 4630 that weighs 5,200+ pounds. I doubt an extra foot worth of box blade will stop it.
