The box blade/grapple combo can do a hell of a lot more with the BB on the back, believe me.
BB was mentioned as a rear ballast which I find it perfect for (BB1560 on my B2650) as it counterbalances ANY load the FEL can raise off the ground.
The BB can also move more soil, gravel, snow or whatever across an area faster than a front end loader (which I did not see mentioned, just the forks), is a powerful dozer in reverse, and once that stump puller does its job, throw the BB on to re-level where the stump once was.

And of course if there's any gravel grading or reconditioning to do....

I was kind of kidding you. I have implements that I seldom use, and a couple I've loaned out more then I've used. It's kind of like women and shoes or purses or .......
But wait, you loan out your women and shoes and purses?

I also would check them out but as posted above, probably a good deal.

FYI: I would LOVE to find some decent implements at 50% I was counting on it but they are scarce and closer to 100% around here this last year since I have been looking.

BTW - you will find a use for that BB

I used to not think I would have much use for a box blade. Spent the first dozen years with my BX without one. Then I had a job that a box blade would work really good for so bought one. It has become the most used attachment I own for the BX. I guess most of the time it is just ballast but rarely does it ever come off.

I’m the opposite. I bought a box blade 20 years ago and only used it to level some ground for a shed and carports. I tried maintaining my gravel road with it but found that my rear blade with tilt and offset is better for that task. My box blade sat in the weeds for years and I sold it today along with my old small cut. When I bought my MX, I looked for a heavy rear blade with tilt, offset, and hydraulic capability. I bought one, and never considered buying another box blade.

Good swap/choice!

The biggest issue is getting implements. So, I don't think 50% off for quality implements in good condition is reasonable right now.

Ask your dealer to build the Kubota and build one out with implements. But, you do need to know the brand/quality of the implements. If they are cheap implements, the person might be lucky just to unload them.
