I looked at these last year for driveway maintenance and ended up going with a woods gs60. The gs60 is like the 1160 but has adjustable skid shoes so u can adjust your bite depth front and back as well as scarifiers to rip if needed. I pull it with a 2032r with r3s and in 4wd once full I do begin to loose traction with the front blade almost biting 1/2" and the rear blade flush with the shoes. If traction loss gets bad I just tap the 3pt up a smidge and lower it back once traction returns. Works awesome for leveling the driveway, filling pot holes and crowning.

Thx,the main reason I am choosing frontier is 0℅ financing on implements included in my package,I get all I want,that I pay for later on.i want to know if keeping air in the tires trades off on using a ball hitch,does hitch allow gravity to let it wobble,if it does not wobble as much with the 3 point ,making it stay rigid with the tractor.Can one way be better for speed or results?both connecting methods take about the same time to use from the b.h. transfer?At more money for a receiver hitch and ball?

Junior30 brings up a good point about the scarifiers on his Woods land plane. None of the Frontiers have them. If you're doing maintenance on a gravel driveway, you're going to want an implement that has scarifiers. If you're getting a box blade as part of your implement package, then you should be covered. If not consider either adding a box blade with scarifiers or getting a different brand of land plane.

I do understand that you're wanting to utilize the 0% financing, but don't let the financing rate overrule the need to get the implements that will give you the best value.

As far as the difference between the LP1060 pull behind and the LP1160 3pt hitch models, I'm probably not much help. I can see advantages to both. Just make sure you have the appropriate hydraulic connections to operate any hydraulics on the LP1060.

If you're sticking with the two models from Frontier I would get the heavier model. Also if you plan on crowning a driveway you may need to stick with the 3pt model since neither model appears to let you adjust bite depth from front to back or side to side. You would need adjust your 3pt to tilt the 1160 for the crown. I am not familiar with the 1060 style but if there is nothing to allow height adjustments on the blades in comparison to the running shoes then I'm not sure if you can crown a driveway based on the ball hitch design.

Thank you
They adjust manual,both ways.the wheel version can be pulled with anything and you can move it around unattached.Rippers should be on a box in my thinking,which is also coming. The Leatherman concept is appealing for obvious reasons and we can all even agree on the pros& cons, but everyone will interpret them different
