Why Use A Land Plane?
Before we dive deeper into our recommendation for mini skid steer land planes, let’s take a look at some common uses.
A land plane is generally used to level out the earth. By design, if you run a land plane over the earth, it will shave down high spots while filling in low areas.
As you can imagine, a land plane would be a useful tool when leveling out a gravel driveway, preparing the ground to pour cement, preparing the earth for agriculture etc.
Some land planers will come with the option of having rippers or scarifiers on the back to loosen hardened soil as well. These can either be hydraulically operated or manual, as they may not always be advantageous to use.
To illustrate why a mini skid steer land planer is so efficient, let’s look at how you would level the ground with a bucket rather than a land planer.
When trying to grade the earth using just a bucket rather than a proper land planer, you are filling the bucket with earth as you cut down high spots. This earth then has to be carried to a lower spot and filled in using the back of the bucket.
This has two main disadvantages. One, high spots are only taken down in the forward direction while low spots are only filled in the reverse direction. And two, your bucket filling with earth limits how far you can plane before you have to carry the earth away to a low spot.
The mini skid steer land planer solves these problems. With it’s open design, it will cut down high spots while filling low spots at the same time. You can also plane for longer distances because the earth will not fill the planer.
