    2025r / Frontier LP1160 Land Plane

    Hi all, my Deere dealer just dropped off my new land plane. I'm surprised at how large...and how nice it is. My tractor is a new 2025r, and the dealer suggested I go with a light weight 48" but I went with the heavy weight 60" and am glad I did. I was a little nervous how it would pull it when fully loaded, but my machine pulls it just fine. I did put it in 4X4 after I dragged a full load of material through a big puddle, but the R4 tires held traction just fine. I have a 1/4 mile dirt driveway...which is in very bad shape after being without a tractor for over 5 years....but this land plane brought up and reclaimed more gravel than I ever would have imagined. It's a dummy proof tool (perfect for me) ...you just drop it and drive. I only made a few quick passes but couldn't help but think...why didn't I do this a lot sooner. I can't wait to have a tri-axle of material delivered ,....get it spread and hit it with the Land Plane. If you're on the fence about getting one... they are for real! I'm loving it!

    I agree. I love my landpane. It’s just magical. I know I’m glad I got mine. I got the new 2025 and went with the LP1060L. I didn’t want to take a chance to it being to heavy. Figured I can always add weight to a lighter one. I see no reason to get a 48” unless you need it to get into small places

    well its gonna be used at least twice a yr for sure. and every time u ride that driveway its gonna put a smile on ur face.

    i kept our drive way/lane-it was a 1/4 mile long. once a summer i borrowed the townships pull behind grader. pulled it with our jd model 50 farm tractor. that kept the ditches open better, kept the crown in the road. very good implement-IMO. i tried for yrs to buy it from the township-but they kept it to loan out to the people of the township to borrow that had very long lanes back then.
    the 50 didn't have a 3 pt on it-still doesn't. back when i was kid-my dad made a homemade drag-and i got to drive our ole jd 38 B-pulling that drag up and down the lane-but it did nothing for the ditches, we used the hand back hoe back then to keep the ditches cleaned out. work i tell ya!

    with a long dirt road, I think I'll be using this plane at least 4 or so times a year. Every year I need to have gravel brought in so I'll spread it with the plane...driving up and down causes the stuff to settle, so a week or so later ya need to hot it again or holes start forming, water gets in it...and then people coming and going spash through it making it worse. Keeping a dirt road in good shape take frequent passes with some sort of tool. I used to use a big rake with my old machine...that was alright but not as easy or nice as the LP. They really are an awesome implement.

    That's why I don't have one, or a box blade for that matter.

    That would be a snow blade here.

    I have a box blade that is used as a ballast box most of the time. Every now and then I get to move some dirt with it.


    Nice looking job on the drive.
    Taking the easy way is what makes rivers and men crooked.

    I have the 1160 LP as well. It's a great tool. In addition to my drive way, I use it on my never ending yard project to smooth out the dirt I spread. I have also used it on my trails in my woods, although it's a little cumbersome for that since the length makes the tractor a bit awkward to maneuver in the woods. Yes, it does sit for long periods of time but when I need it, I need it so worth the investment for me. I don't have a box blade that works on my 3E series so this also fills that role albeit not nearly as good as a box blade since it doesn't move as much dirt at once.

    To the OP, you may not have to bring in gravel every year now with the LP. I am still on the first load of gravel brought in two years ago for my drive. It's a pretty thin layer and I needed more from the start but my LP brings my gravel back up to the top. I probably drag my drive once every 4 to 6 months depending on how much rain we get. We had an exceptionally wet winter and spring so I drug my drive back in April, I think, and it still holding up really well now due to a return to a more normal rain pattern.

    How do you fix the never ending ruts from the z

    I also use mine on my driveway often. Ballast for lighter stuff. And endless projects around the yard

    Thats a good point...i was very surprised at how much gravel it reclaimed and moved around to fill in pot holes. I'll need another load or two I think to fill in the deeper holes, and hopefully start to form a crown. After that, yeah I'll be surprised to see how long I can go between loads. I pay $270 per triaxle load...so if this things saves a load here and there, it'll start paying for itself rather quickly. Not that I dont mind investing in it...it'll be great to have it and use whenever I want.
