And it's made in Wisconsin!

Sorry, but I do like having some sort if mesh that would hold the bigger rocks. I would like to add that to the one we have.

That's why I was looking at the Bobcat Deluxe landplane. It had the mesh too. JD has the mesh but I've noticed that some do not.

I personally don't like the mesh. It carries to much crap and doesn't let the loose material flow through the tool like a plane with out mesh. Not to mention, with our soils we can't just shake the fines through the mesh. Our soil is way to heavy and thick.

I know this is an old thread but I had a chance to use the JD landplane on a grading job. I am now starting to dislike the mesh but figure it may have its place for holding larger stones. I am thinking of cutting part of it out so that the 2"+ rocks and fines will flow through and then leave about 4"-5" of mesh to catch larger stones.

I'm finding the JD landplane to be very aggressive. I need more practice. I need to carry a better grade when working base. My bucket just ain't doing it anymore.

My latest thoughts are, I miss my land plane like a long lost 1 night stand spring break girlfriend.

I'm still using the JD. I haven't had time to cut back some of the mesh but I'll probably post a few pics when I do. I just want to let some of the smaller rocks flow through and still catch the bigger ones. We don't have a lot of problems grading wet clay but the clay in the soil can create large clumps that act like rocks when we knock down dirt piles.
