For a 2025r which would be better? Both are 3 point lift. The 1060 is around 100lbs lighter but the scraper blades are only .25" thick vs .50" on the 1160. Dealer is trying to push the 1060 but I am hesitant. Any feedback from users of either?



Thanks

According to the Deere website the LP1060L is designed for Limited Cat-1 3PH whereas the LP1160 is designed for full Cat-1. According to the 2025R owner's manual - the 3PH is rated at Limited Cat-1.

The LP1060L appears to be rated for 30HP max whereas the LP1160 is 18-50HP.

I was curious what the 3PH supports look like on the L-version. While the LP1060L is supposed to be 3PH attachable, every photo I can find of it shows it as a pull-type with a hitch ball and wheels.

I found that one too. It's actually a LP1048L but we can probably assume the 1060L is constructed the same.

The lp1160 appears to have a more tubular frame with higher sides. It also looks like it has 2 pin locations for different height 3 point lifts.

Frontier 5' Land Plane (LP1060)


Thats not a 3-point hitch attachable unit...unless there is a different LP1060.

If the price isnt too crazy in difference, Id go with the LP1160. With two sets of mounting holes, you should have no trouble.

While Deere does list the 2025Rs 3-point as a "Limited" Cat 1, in the physical sense it isnt. Size wise, its a standard Cat 1. The only "Limited" portion of the hitch is lift height, and that can be easily remedied by adding a second adjustable link on the other side. Capacity wise, its the same or better than several older tractors with full Cat 1 hitches.

As with all things JD, they have to throw in a bit of confusion factor with the marketing information. In the chart below you can see where the LP1060L is indeed for a 3PH. The LP1060 (non-L) is a pull-type with a ball. Most of the photos of these smaller land planes seem to be of the pull-type.

I probably should have know something was up when I found a picture so easily, :laugh:

That changes things a bit.
If the LP1060 isnt going to be used a ton, it might be worth saving money on it. The thinner cutting edges will wear out quicker, so replacement cost should likely be factored in and compared to the heavier built one, but as long as the width of the mounting frame will work with a quick hitch (and it looks like it should), Im all for saving money where I can!

I did find a Frontier PDF online that said "LP10 series pull type land planes" and "LP11 series land planes are 3-point hitch mounted", but it doesnt say when it was printed.
But Deeres own release shows one mounted to the 2025R. Deere unveils latest Frontier Attachments, Land Planes (pictures at the end, scroll through for the land plane). This also indicates it should work just fine with the Imatch, since its mounted to one!

Talked through it with my dealer. I have more gravel to maintain than he thought.

Going with the lp1160. I can always adjust the aggressiveness with the top link.
