Do you mean a 3pt linkage Blade, Fonzy?
If so, one of the toughest I`ve seen is made by Challenge Implements.
Here`s a link.
Rear End Graders - Challenge Implements
p.s. I have a Grizzly and having seen the Challenge up close, would say the latter is built even stronger.

Collier and miller in Griffith make good blade there are a few around and haven't had any issues.

Access Import Services in Dalby may bring in some heavy-duty drag box scrapers with tilt from Canada. Could be worth asking them.

How does everyone go operating one of these things? I borrow a neighbours to pull up rill at the end of the irrigation run and it looks like a dogs breakfast. Then another neighbour offers his old JD grader (in pity I suspect) and once I work out what lever does what, I look like a pro. If a new back blade and a rooted old grader are similar price, I'd take the grader.

Back blade can go places a grader can't. Especially near concrete.

Looked at all 3pt linkage and brought a challange. actually made in Danmark. blade also reverses so can push or pull. would be the tallest/deppest blade around, got side plates as well to carry a fair volume if needed. would also be the most expensive, as usual.

X2 just buy a grader, the collier and miller trailing graders are built well but hydraulic bypass in the rams buggers any ability to hold any position in tough going.
Far better and more control with a normal grader.

Fair call but where do you buy a reliable grader for 10-15K????? Seem to have to start at 30K to get anything half decent, even then they are kinda like dinosaurs. I`m wanting a heavy duty blade that can go behind a 100-200 hp tractor. Not necessarily needing the power but just want one that is rated to handle the HP so it should be well built. Thanks

Found PJ's beast. Don't be afraid of freight for anything down south Fonz. It's quite ridiculous how cheap you can get stuff moved from any part of the country useing loadshift.com.au. You basically tell them what you want to pay in the end.

Found iyt on farmmachinery.com but price seems a bit high. Not sayin id didn`t cost that much to build but can probly find reasonable complete grader going for that price. My price range is 20k Max.

Fonzy. You`ll get a Grizzly engineering blade for around $10,000. There will be a dealer near you.
GM95 grader blades from Grizzly Engineering
