    Default Land Plane,...Mfg?

    Wanting buy a land plane and have been searching about it here. What companies make these? I have found a few names. Want to see who has the heaviest at a fair price. Also what width suggested for a 53hp 2WD.

    thanks

    I have a Grade Master. It does a good job. But if I were to buy again I'd get one with a row of ripper teeth like a box blade. Don't think I'd ever need the teeth but they look cool.

    I have a "Road Boss" It's 7 feet wide, perfect for a roadway. But I pull it with a 50 Hp tractor, needs to be in 4wd for traction. If you get a similar sized LP, I think you'll need loaded tires.

    Do a google search using something like landplane: tractorbynet.com, and you'll likely get a bunch of threads of TBN discussions of landplanes including the many available vendors.

    Doing the same search w/o the TBN was also helpful....

    The consensus on width always seems to be at, or slightly wider than the outside width of your tires, as smaller leaves unexcavated areas with wheel marks, and too much larger risks bogging down your tractor.

    Pulled 6' unit with 2WD JD 5105. With unit level and both blades cutting it would spin loaded 14.9-28 rear tires. Seemed to spin less behind Ford 4000 and JD 5303 4WD.

    Several people have built their own, so you might consider that. I have a post somewhere with about 80 pictures in the build and several other people have documented their builds. It isn't rocket science, just a little fabrication. Mine is heavy for a 70 hp 2wd tractor, but it handles it.
