    Very good! I agree that the angled blades cut aka slice material instead of bluntly running into it. Like an exacto blade: Hold it vertical & try to cut & it just tears the paper & bunches it up, but the further you angle the exacto downward, the smoother it cuts.

    I've thought about the possibility of adding a gauge wheel to my grading scraper. I know it would be longer, which is the idea for a better grade result, but it could removable, too, for times when just the scraper itself is needed

    Two other differences are that the land planes have a 2nd blade parallel to the first, & the blades are slightly angled to direct material toward the left for road crowning. I think you could make a pretty darn good land plane just by adding side skids, though.
    When I said converting I meant cutting it apart to use parts from.I could use the hitch. The rippers and mine has 2 cutting edges. I would just meed the side plates with skids.

    Because this implement gets used as a land plane and as a grader blade I think that we ought to call them LPGBs. (Land Plane Grader Blade)

    And for additional words, Land Pride calls it a Grading Scraper

    LPGSB (Land Plane Grading Scraper Blade)?

    Good work and thanks for sharing the insight into what makes it work, especially the angled blades, I had never thought of that.

    However, that's if you buy it, but if you make it yourself, it's home built, so it's actually called a HBLPGSB (Home Built Land Plane Grading Scraper Blade)
