    land plane help

    i am having a hydraulic tnt built for my 3038e. will this tractor pull a 6 ft plane or should i stick with a 5 ft? i have a small paving business. i plan on retiring my little motorgrader once i get this attachment.

    38hp should be plenty for pulling a 6 footer. I built a 6' drag scraper and have no issues pulling that (except uphill) with my 2025R.

    I pull a 6' Frontier behind a 3033R with only the heaviest stuff slowing me down. I don't use rippers, so that might make a difference, but you should be fine. Fluid in the tires and some added weight would be beneficial.

    1) check with tower for clearance to approach
    2) adjust fuel mixture for air density
    3)...

    Oh, you meant "land plane" not land A plane.

    Sorry, please disregard.

    That depends on what you use as fluid and how much you get. I would call Rimguard and see who is their local vendor, the price varies greatly on rimguard so shop around. You can also use windshield wiper fluid, that is probably cheaper but it is not as dense. I am not sure if anyone still uses calcium-chloride anymore but that used to be popular but it will eat your rims eventually. I know on another forum some folks did it themselves.
