    I have an old back blade that I'm thinking of making into a shallow swale cutter. Considering making it with either a backhoe coupler or a skid steer coupler. I can see advantages to either. Which would you use?

    Yep, I've seen those. I'm not looking to get that complicated and no where near that much money. I don't cut enough swales to justify that much expense. But since I have the old blade and a welder...:) It does have some ideas for a mount though. Thanks:drinkup
