I use it for landscaping and construction (building pads) as well as road building and grading. Does a great job and is easy to use. As others have mentioned you can run it backwards to do a final smoothing. The main issue will be if you have rocks! Any rocks at the surface will likely be dug up and will need to be removed to get a smooth finish. I don't have any pictures of it in action, but here is one of it on the tractor. I have the scarifiers in the up position most of the time.

    A couple of years ago when working out of Durango on the Animas river I dodn't even bring the landplane but I did bring my rock bucket. Man lots and lots of rocks with a little dust thrown in for good measure. Very pretty area though.

    How hard does a land plane pull? Is it comparable to a scraper blade or a box blade?

    Depends on the type of material. For doing a driveway with stone it pulls very easy. Now if your in heavy loose soil it builds up and stops dead in your tracks. But overall I think it it pulls like a 1/4 full box blade

    Lots of variables. My 75hp 12,000lb 4x4 tractor can be easily stopped with my 7 foot wide 1400lb land plane grader blade. If the ground is right and I just drop it to the ground with the position control all the way forward as so many say that they do, my tractor isn't going to go very far. Just like any implement, once you learn the adjustments that need to be done, it has amazing capabilities.

    Someone asked if they can be used for other stuff than roads. and as Steve said, yes. And with mine if the ground is damp, I can move over 2 cubic yards of dirt at a time and when you are leveling out a large area, that sure does work well and a lot faster than any of my other implements. A lot has to do with the conditions that you have at that current time.

    I was asking because I am going to make one for the BX. I was undecided on a 4' or 5' but after I asked I kinda made up my mind on the 4' cause of its more compact size.

    do you transport the bx the same way you do the riding mower?

    Bullit a 4' landplane is a full load for your BX, my z749 knows it is back there.

It's now just part of the lawn and gets mowed and I need to find a new excuse to buy a brush hog.
    thats the same situation i'm looking at, a steep back yard that got stumped and poorly graded.Its all crabgrass thats barely mowable with my walk behind so id like to regrade and plant seed,wondering if i'd have to scarify everything first or just run a land planer over it in the spring
