    1025R TLB pull a 5' land plane?

    I need a land plane - I think...
    The box blade is OK for makng driveways, but the plane would be faster and give a smoother surface - I think...

    So do I go with 4' or 5' unit? This is for basically flat ground. Set up the dirt road base, then gravel it. There are NO rocks in the dirt or the underlying soil. It's hard, but can be ripped with the boxblade or a land plane with scarifiers.
    I have to make 3 driveways:
    1. 10-12' wide x 100' long
    2. 10-12' wide x 350' long
    3. 50' wide x 30' long
    Then I'll have to maintain them. The wide one will get the most use. None are public use and none abutt public property or roads.

    You guys are experienced, so I'm asking:
    Is it better to use the 3 PT hitch or get one with wheels?
    What's the best bang for the buck? Cost is a factor.
    Is the 5' too much for my tractor?

    I've searched and can't find a deal on a new one and can't find a used one. I'm in Sacramento, CA. Thanks for your help.

    I can not imagine a 1,400 pound tractor with 26" tires pulling a 4 foot landplane.

    I should clarify,, it will pull it, but, not effectively,,,

    Rent a skidsteer,,, develop the roads, then figure out what you need to maintain the road,,,

    You might have already checked it but if you haven't...check out DR. They have one that might be what you're looking for, with remote.

    Is there a dealer that will let you demo a couple models? That would tell you for sure what your tractor could handle.

    According to all of Deere's online literature for their Land Planes, the recommendation is a 48".

    Land Pride is the same, 48" for your power rating.

    I haven't seen a land plane with wheels, they've all been three point. There are some grader boxes and pull type graders with wheels, but most of those are built for full size ag tractors and only have a single blade.

    I think a 4' land plane would be the best match for a 1 series. Heavier ground engaging implements are more effective, and a well built 5' might be difficult for the tractor to lift as well as pull.

    I've cut out and levelled a 1\2 mile drainage ditch that was 6' across and 3' deep using the heavy Frontier box blade with 4 scarifiers in this dirt. I also filled it up and scraped it again to make a road. The levelling for my 40' x 50' steel building foundation was all done with the 1025R. I'm certain it'll handle a 48" plane, but uncertain it'll handle a 60" .

    Yes, that's true, but I see they also recommend 48" loader buckets and plenty of guys use larger ones, so maybe a 60" plane would work? Just asking if anyone's doing it.

    Randy,

    I hate to disagree with the more experienced guys, but I'm not seeing the same thing.

    Unlike most specs charts which list the required PTO horsepower, this one is engine HP. A 1025 is ~23 HP. So if I'm reading this correctly, the LP1060 is 30HP MAX, and the LP1160 is good for 18-50 HP. Even if this is a misprint and it was supposed to be PTO HP, the 1025 PTO is 18 HP.

    So this tells me, you can pull all the way up to a 6 foot Frontier Land Plane with a 1025R. Perhaps I'm misreading the specs chart or you have other conflicting information?
