    Default Befco grader/land plane WOW !!

    Picked up my befco model BGS-072 grader/land plane yesterday.I had a chance today to use it grading our 2 mile private road,all I can say is WOW.In the past I have used a 7 ft.box blade,7 ft york rake,chain harrow,7 ft king kutter straight blade.While those implements did a decent job they cannot hold a candle to the befco landplane.coobie

    Congrats on the new toy, I mean implement. Could you post some pictures of the landplane and what your driveway looks like?

    All of us who use these grader/land planes can talk till we are blue in the face but operating one on your own driveway can make you a believer.

    Here are some pictures of a Befco grader/land plane, this is a 60" but similar to the 72". At 703lbs. for a 6' LPGB that is better than average.

    You guys keep tormenting me with the land plane threads. I have everything to build one but the time. I almost have enough stuff to build two.

    If you have enough stuff to build two then make it twice as heavy and longer skids.

    I have enough to make one for the BX and a good start on the on for the 4240, I have a guy that is supposed to give me some broken grader blades and I am hoping I can use the cutting edges for the L4240.

    Mine isn't a BEFCO but seems to be of good quality. It is the easiest impliment on Earth to use and get a good result. My neighbor does most of my driveway with a big motor grader but the part I dois crazy easy and quick.

    Looks like a great implement, but wouldn't it work better if it had a hinged gate, on the very back, to grade the material. Take a look at the one Guild built on the last page of the "today's seat time" thread. I think a combination of these two implements would be perfect.

    I have been itching to build one, but the price of steel up here in NYC is insane, along with most everything else.
