    790 pulling power

    Can my 790 handle a six foot land plane or would I be better off getting a five foot one?

    I hooked my 7 foot landplane to my JD 4105,, just for kicks,,,

    The 4105 weighs 50% more than the 790,,,



    If I tried to move more than a little gravel, the landplane became a "boat anchor" off of an oil tanker,,

    If I had a 790, I would go with a 5 foot,,

    I normally pull the 7 foot landplane with a 10,000 pound tractor,, even then, the landplane is quite a load, if much material is in it,,,
    and, if you notice, my DIY landplane only has one blade in it,,,
    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!!

    I pull a 5 footer with a 2038R. Loaded with gravel, it’s all it can handle. Sometimes it’s too much. The land plane is almost 600 pounds empty. I’d go with the 5 footer.

    5'

    I agree with the posts above. You probably can pull a 6' but not if it's filled with material. I don't have a land plane but a 5' box blade is plenty for a 790, in my experience.
