Need opinions on 6-way dozer blade for my CTL

    I have the oppurtunity to purchase a barely used Bobcat 96" 6-way dozer blade for a great price...

    My question is:

    Is this blade too wide for my 80HP CTL? I would be using the blade for maintenance of my 1 mile gravel/dirt driveway, general grading, and snow removal. For the snow removal, it will work fine, but I'm concerned about the performance in the dirt... I won't be using it as a D3, and will be the only operator...

    It's such a great deal that I could buy it and have it cut down to 84"...

    Any thoughts? Experiences?

    Thanks in advance,

    Dozer blades work great but take some getting used to. Like you said it isn't a D3 it's easy to take too much. I have an 84" Grouser blade with no complaints you should be fine with a 96"er.
