    Man you've got all the toys that I'd like to get (landplane). How do like the landplane attachment, I've been looking for one, right now I just use an Loegering eliminater rake on my skidsteer. Do you use the landplane for preparing yards for seeding and sodding or do use something else. I'd like to have a harley rake but their a little pricey and don't think I'd use it enough to jusify one.

    I hear you about the older crowd becoming jealous of you.

    I'm nothing like you, but I've experienced a little of that myself. Older, former neighbor of ours (nice guy, but trashy) with kind of a rinky dink lawn company has seen me coming up with legit equipment, truck, trailer, and clients. Not to mention my work is ffaaarrrr superior. (On a leaf job of his I saw he just mulched up the leaves in the lawn, didn't blow the concrete at all. Then he blew all the remaining leaves into the street and far down the street LOL) BUT ANYWAY, point being I have experienced some weird vibes from him and random other companys with older guys I pull up on. It's just kind of sad but in a weird way.

    Anyway, keep it up. If you really want to be successful in 2011 trade in those damn fords for the real deal, Chevrolet :)

    So far so good. I haven't done a lawn yet but I have done 2 dirt roads and a horse ring. I just picked it up like last Thursday so I haven't had that may opportunity's to use it. I'v used the eliminator its not bad. My John Deere dealer treats me right so I went and ordered the landplane. Plus I think the eliminator is a little over priced for what you get. The landplane has a hydraulic ripper, 3 cutting edges and screen. A harley rake would be great but yeah its tough to swing 10 Gs for an attachment.
