    That would be good information to have, thanks in advance.

    Nice build!

    If one was to build a similar land plain with the intent of gravel driveway maintnance, should the cutting edge be even with the bottom of the runner or lower/higher?

    I would set it about 3/4" below for driveway work as long as you have a hydraulic top link to adjust the pitch of the skids. Otherwise I would stay close to flush as it will still dig in quickly. Digging down deeper helps to pull the gravel back to the top surface.

I built this larger plane for the 110 and it has no problem with it.
    I thought about rolling it. But here's what I went with, a 7inch and an 8inch piece in the triangle shape. So far it worked pretty good. Went across a fresh ripped field to make an access path to a new irrigation system. Earlier it wanted to dig, now it floats a whole lot better and not loosing traction in soft soil. I didn't do the back yet, maybe I'll try something else

    Steve I visited my 1026R that is still at the dealership waiting for the mower installation prior to delivery. We measured the three point hitch ends at their lowest point and it was 9 and 1/2 inches from the floor to the center of the hitch ends.

    How does that compare with your X749? I was hoping you would offer to build one for me but that would be selfish on my part. Oh well, I may just have to check out the pull type Frontier model that John Deere sells. I don't think it will work as well your thee point hitch mount though.

    That is about the same as my 749, I was interested as my other tractors will all drop to within 8 inches of the ground. I think if I were to do it again I would space the main beams above the skids by four inches or use the 2x12 in rectangular tubing for the skids. While I haven't experienced any issues with the new landplane it would be an improvement to have the taller sides.

    Any welder worth his salt can build this for you and in most cases wouldn't charge more than the pull behind. Something to consider and get some estimates, depending on where you live shipping from New Mexico would be expensive.

    Simple but effective glad it worked out for you.

    While cleaning the hay barn found a new use for a land plane! Scrape up the hay on the ground, (landscape rake is currently being fitted to work with the imatch) but go in reverse, acts like v-plow and catches majority of the hay.

    Been very busy with other work but here's a few pics of the completed project with a new coat of paint. Painted this last Monday and let it sit for a week to cure in the sun. Time to put it to work on a new landscape project. Pictured with the larger landplane 8' model I built for the 4520.

    Looks good. It came out very nice. A couple of decals and one would think that it was OEM.
