I have been seriously contemplating getting a Frontier LP1160 land plane.
Wondering if anyone has one and if they work as good as i think they would for my purpose.
I have close to a 1/4 mile of gravel driveway to maintain and keep crowned. I have a box blade that i got with my 1025.
It just doesn't have the smooth continuos flow i'm looking for. The problem with the BB, or a scraper blade is that they rely on the tractor to stay smooth. Tractor hits a bump, they bump up. Use them in float, they'll dig to China.
I've run many graders and built many a road and highway in my job as an op so it bugs me and keeps making me look for something easier and faster without actually buying an old grader.
The land plane looks to have drag bars angled to move material sideways and long sides to keep it afloat better.
Anyone use one?
