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.
