I suggest grading your driveway to start with. With the Wd45 being new to you, I would get au fait with it first , see how it drives, how to handle a bigger tractor, before I attach any implement/s to it. Enjoy.

Red Kiwi is right. Get to know your tractor first. It would take some time to type a "how to " book about box blades and driveways.
Since a picture is worth 1000 words and talking pictures are worth ten times that . I would suggest going to Youtube.
Search for" How to set up a box blade" and "How to maintain a gravel driveway." There are some very good videos people have posted.
Then practice, practice, practice. There will be quite a learning curve till you get it right.
What type of brush?? Does your tractor have a front loader?
If you get a chance post a photo of your tractor. We would like to see your new acquisition.
