I know there are a lot of differing conditions, and a lot of different opinions on what to use for driveway maintenance.
I think for my needs (after reading and research) what I need is a LPGB "land plane grader blade" as opposed to a box blade. I have about 500 ft of rocky packed level roadway with a thin layer of what we call "base course" on top - made by crushing a hard granite type lava - known as "blue rock" and fairly expensive when delivered. It is used under all the roads here, with plenty of fines and smaller gravel type rock. I eventually hope to have a 3-4 inch layer of 1/4" minus base course on top of the much "gnarlier" mix of the old packed 1 1/2", 6", and even larger rock underneath.
From what I can gather, for just maintaining a top layer such as I have planed, a Land Plane would be easier and do a quicker cleaner job than a box blade, and certainly better than back dragging with my FEL - as I do now. A box blade will just bounce off the larger rock "under base" - so really of no use for major road work at all. I previously used a DR Power Grader pulled behind my utility vehicle. But when it hit a bigger rock it was trouble. However the idea worked pretty well when confronted with strictly loose material. But now I have a tractor.
So, if you agree - do you have any recommendations for an implement that will fit/work on my 1025r TLB for my needs??? Maybe something that can use blocks for weight - as shipping a heavy piece of equipment here to Hawaii can be expensive. I do have a JD dealer here, who brings in stuff in large containers, but to ship individual pieces personally can sometimes cost almost as much as the piece of equipment itself.
