    Default Land Pride prices?

    Anyone know where I can find prices on LP implements? Looking to compare prices because our local dealer seems pricey but I know LP implements are expensive. I want to buy a rake (w/gauge wheels) and a rear blade. Should I buy separate implements or does anyone have an opinion on the LP rake with the optional flip down grader blade. Thanks

    NYTrainer,

    You can get some idea of prices here:

    http://www.4turf.com/homepage.htm

    and here:

    http://www.carverequipment.com/implements_landpride.htm

    Searching the TBN archives for specific LP model numbers may also yield some good information.

    David,

    Something I noticed in the LP catalog last night when looking at the specs for my blade (an RB15) - this blade is "Landscape Rake adaptable".

    Sounds like it might be an option worth pricing - although it could be a major hassle to switch over - these blades are not light.

    David,

    LandPride "list" prices can be found at (785) 823-3276 (Salina, Kansas).
    I spoke with L J, who was very helpful.

    My purchase was similar but a different series, ...I will give the List/paid prices for the items I purchased. 3 dealers were fairly close, so I imagine the %-discount should be typical:

    RB35-96 rear blade $1010/$775
    300-014Aoptional gauge wheel for blade $475/$395
    302-169A rake attachment 96" $698/ $557
    302-174A dual (wide) gauge wheels for rake $299/$250

    I was told not to expect the "exchange" of the blade/rake-attachment to be "a 20 mi. job". I asked for a "realistic" estimate, ...1 hour! (the ratchet-adjusted tail-wheel must be removed, and there is some other dis-assembly- Heavy pieces.

    I said I plan to make a rolling jig to hold the blade or rake while I position them for assembly, ... back to "20 min. - MAYBE!"
    I also got a hyd. cyl. for the "offset". With hyd. topNtilt, the range of positions is super, ...will post photos, hoipefully soon. [img]/w3tcompact/icons/wink.gif[/img]

    HTH, good luck [img]/w3tcompact/icons/smile.gif[/img]

    NYTrainer,

    I have a 5-foot LP rake with the flip-down grader blade and gage wheels, and a separate scarifier. The rake is an LR1560, and the scarifier is an SF2566. I also have a LP QuickHitch QH15. My experience with LandPride has not been good. I originally went with their equipment because I felt it was heavy duty, and would better stand up to the stresses of use. Their stuff does seem to be very heavily built, but they seem to have a lot of quality-control / engineering problems.

    I ordered their rake last year, with the gage wheels and grader blade, and the first mistake they made was sending me a rear blade instead of the flip down grader blade. I returned the rear blade, and next they sent me a 6-foot grader blade instead of a 5-foot one (which is the one I need). I'm still trying to get the correct grader blade. Pretty soon I'll just give up, take my torch, and cut & reweld the 6-foot blade so it will fit my unit. The rake body has several front and rear angled positions. It rotates around to use in the back position - until you install the gage wheels. The bracket that holds the gage wheels doesn't clear the frame of the rake, so to use the rake in the "rear-rake" position, you'd have to remove one of the gage wheel brackets to rotate the rake around.

    The scarifier works okay - no problems with it.

    I just received their QH-15 last week. It was missing the lower pins, but had the optional floating top-link. I didn't order the floating top-link, but the unit needs the pins to hook-up to the 3-point. I'm currently using some other pins I had in my stash. I think the unit is too wide, also - it's supposed to fit Cat I, which calls for a spacing of 26" between the bottom pin shoulders. The frame of the unit is 26", but the hooks that grab the implement are spaced out beyound that - maybe 3/4"-1" or so. Not much, but if I try to pick up my JD ballast box, the pins don't extend far enough through the hooks to let me install the lynch pins. (The ballast box measures 26" between the pin shoulders.) This leaves the pins not extending completely through the hooks - looks pretty unstable to me. I haven't tried other implements yet, but I'll make this one work, simply by slipping bushings over the existing pins on the ballast box, which will have the effect of extending the pins. If I had it to do over, I think I'd look at the Worksaver quick hitch - or at the Jiffy or Freedom models.

    As I said, their stuff seems to be pretty heavily constructed. When deciding on a rake and scarifier, I picked theirs because of the heft of it. I planned to clear a path several hundred feet long through some woods, so I anticipated using the scarifier quite a bit. A neighbor has a York unit - and of course it had a couple of broken-off scarifier teeth. I think it's safe to say I'll never break one of the teeth on the SF2566 scarifier.

    The scarifier has a 3-Pt hitch on the back of it - if you want to use the scarifier with the rake, you hook the scarifier to the tractor 3-Pt, and hook the rake to the scarifier 3-Pt. This works okay, only complaint I have is that is makes the scarifier/rake combination kinda long, but it isn't a problem as far as using the implement.

    I would definitely suggest getting the rake w/ flip-down blade as opposed to getting only one frame and switching a rake and back blade. Switching between rake and back-blade requires assembly/disassembly - quite a bit of work there.

    I realize other's may not have had the same kind of experiences I've had. But I've had too many problems, with different implements purchased at different times, at a price higher than alternatives, to recommend them. Hope this helps.

    Caretaker,
    Thanks for the very useful info. I ordered (actually pieces were in stock)the 15 Series rake w/ dual gauge wheels and since I needed a blade I opted for the blade only (no separate yoke). I was told that the 60" model is easy to change over to the rake's yoke. Now I am seriously reconsidering that due to your actual experiences. I had inquired about the "flip-down" blade option and was told people weren't satisfied with it. This info was, of course, supplied by the salesperson. It's very helpful to hear from someone like yourself about what you've encountered. Thanks.
    David

    FYI - I recently ordered the skid shoes for my RB15-60 blade. These came in at just over $100 - quite a bit cheaper than the gauge wheels ($400) if they suit your application. I'm trying to avoid any asphalt removal (along with the snow removal) on my drive next winter.

    Rpm,
    Are those skids specifically designed for the Land Pride RB15-60 blade? That does suit me very well. I'll have to take look through their catalog again. Thanks.

    Here's the thing - they're not mentioned in the standard LandPride catalog - I found them in the parts guide for the rear-blade. Pick out your blade here - and go that blade's spec page. The hyperlink for the parts manual for that blade will be in small type somewhere near the picture. Each blade has its own section in the guide - and there are skid shoes for most (if not all) of them.

    Hope this helps - I haven't received mine yet, but the diagrams seem fairly clear as to what you can expect.
