That EA box is seriously robust NHS. My LP BB1260 works well, but it doesnt look as stout as that EA. I think that will be my next BB when this LP is "wore out".

That is a good first rip there, I bet that job came out beautiful. I don't usually get such a nice uniform rip like that until the second or third pass up here. Those weights are a big help.

The usual,

I actually did wear out my first box blade - a blue NH (I think it was made by Midwest Mfg).

When I ordered this one, I went with the HD version.

@Crash277 roughly 340 extra pounds. The LP 1260 only weighs 350 pounds to start with, I think its a little too light. The weights are a big help for ripping. Looking at NHS photos there is a big difference between them, the one from EA is 100 pounds heavier out of the box.

ok, i was thinking of adding about 200lbs to mine for digging up the gravel faster on the driveway

I love the ripper mod, I use it all the time. I have over a mile on it at this point and the mod has done exactly what I wanted, so all in all, a good success for a one-off. I can already tell this is going to save me on the scarrifers because it is so easy to lift them now. That alone will easily pay for it, but really, it is just a higher quality/faster end result now. (y)(y)

Glad to hear it's working out well. Any chance you might do a video for us with it?
