    1025R and Land Plane On Gravel

    Wondering if any fellow 1025r's have used a land plane with their 1025R? I have over 1000 feet of gravel drive to maintain and the online videos sure make the land planes look like the cats meow. I found a 60" Frontier locally for a really good price but that thing weighs nearly 500 lbs. Once that gets loaded with some gravel, it seems like quite a strain on the mighty mite 1025, even in low. Maybe a 48" is more appropriate?

    I don’t have a 1series, mine is a 2 series. But I do pull a 60 inch Frontier land plane. The big question is do you have hills? If yes, I would go with a smaller one. If no, then you might be able to pull it. Leave your loader on so your front tires will dig in 4wd. I’m sure someone has tried it, they will let you know soon. For the land plane to work great, it needs to dig well and fill up with gravel. I would rather have a smaller one that I could work hard than one too big that I couldn’t let fill up.

    This landplane is 84 inches wide,, that is only 24 inches wider than the 60 inch one you are considering.

    The 84 inch landplane is fully capable of stopping the tractor in the picture.



    That tractor weighs more than 5X the weight of the 1025R.

    I doubt that a 1025R and a 500 pound landplane can move more than 300 pounds of gravel,,,
    what is that,, 2 wheelbarrows of gravel?
    Some of the tractors include JD 4105, JD 855, JD 650,,,, and,,, the IH 584 4WD
    My favorite attachment is the homemade landplane,,, EVERYONE needs one of those!!

    Check out this thread over in "Implements and Attachments".......... http://www.greentractortalk.com/foru...-happened.html


    Maybe MowJoe will let us know how he likes his 48" LandPride plane.... and what he pulls it with.....????


    I've been eyeing one also. My old iron bed box spring does OK but a LP would be better

    That was my plan a few years ago when I first saw a land plane used online. all the local rentals only carry box graders.

    If you consider the discussions on this site about a 4' versus 5' box blade on a 1025r as a guideline (and I think it is a relevant comparison), you would probably be ok using the 5' land plane. As with the bigger box blades, you may get bogged down more quickly if you try to go too deep, but if you make a few passes, lowering further each pass, I would suspect it would work fine. Of course, this is just speculation on my part, I have no experience with a land plane, but they do look nice for gravel road maintenance!

    Did not know what a Land Plane was till just now. I like the way it can cut in and work the dirt in this YouTube Video. If I did not have a 6 ft Box Blade I would be in the market for one myself. They do look like it needs a big tractor when it digs in.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LZV1o_s49_M I might have to buy a couple cutting edges and build me one using my favorite Steel Place to get the bigger steel needed to make it. I like the way it grades with out tearing things up to much.

    I have only used mine on a small section of flat driveway so far. I was pleased with how well it done in that but it was not really enough to take pictures. It’s definitely heavier than the box blade I had but the tractor didn’t seem to struggle at any point with the 48. The land plane cuts much better than the box did. I didn’t put the rippers down because I don’t have a lot of stone on my driveway and I didn’t want to pull up dirt. I would be a little hesitant about the 60” on the 1 series. I would imagine if I was to be coming up a hill with it loaded that would be all it would want to handle. Keep in mind the working width is 48” but total width is 54.
