    Frontier Land Plane LP1160

    I have a John Deere 3038E.... when I’m using the Land Plane, it bogs up and doesn’t evenly flow over the blades as it’s supposed to.. Can anyone tell me exactly how I’m supposed to have it hooked up to my tractor or tell me what I’m doing wrong

    Sounds like you need to put the tractor on level ground, drop the land plane within a few inches of hitting the ground, use a level to level the implement front to back (top link). Then use the level to level right to left by adjusting the 3 point arm up or down.

    Also, for the top link you should be using the center or lower hole on the tractor side.

    AND, if the material is wet, it stays in the LP,,,

    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!!

    That IS a good question. Hopefully someone can provide some information on that.

    Like CADplans said, it works better with dryer material.
    And i thought it was tough pulling an LP1160 behind my 1025.
    Try holding it up a little on 3 point as well, instead of full float mode.

    As others have said, you may need to level it up. I have the same set up but with a 3025 and an Imatch. If I find myself bogging down, I will adjust the plane a little bit (forward/aft) so I am not taking such a big bite. This is especially helpful in wet conditions. The plane will also act like this if you catch rocks or debris like a root or something.

    I don't any of these issues when I am using the plane on my gravel drive. I did have these issues when I was doing my yard but it smoothed out after multiple passes and letting the ground dry a bit. Having it level left to right is key. You should be able to adjust the bite from the seat, at least I can.

    Your pics look like the "gravel" is a high percentage of dirt, of some sort,,,

    A land plane, when used on dirt, can act more like a grader box than a plane.
    The only way to grade dirt like that, and not pick up as much material, is to lift the land plane.

    Now, a LOT of finesse is needed to move some material, but, not a lot of material.

    I graded about 4 acres with my land plane this year,,,
    a little grass can drive you nuts,,, the roots just mat up and stop the material from grading.

    If there is any grass,, spray it with Roundup a month before you want to use the land plane,,,
