    Hi,
    I've got the Bobcat version of that which they call a Landplane and I really like mine. Much easier to level a large area than a bucket in my opinion, and if you add a tilt-tach into the mix it really transitions well in grade changes. That combo dang near makes me look like I know what I'm doing :hammerhead:

    Thanks for the response, I was beginning to wonder!!! What is a tilt-tach, do you have a link? Also do you like(build quality) the looks of the one that I linked to the post?
    Thanks again for your response.

    Tilt Tach lets you rotate the skid steer attachment on an axis, for grading swales ETC.

    Looking at the pics, I would have to say I think I like the way the bobcat unit is made as far as durability goes. The bracing from the attachment plate to the cutting edges looks to be beefier as they extend much further towards the front. However, one thing i like about that one is that the rippers are hydraulicly operated verses the manual ones I have (but I wouldn't be able to use with my tilt-tach due to a shortage of remote couplers) Mine also has a set of clod busters instead of the expanded metal in the front, but that is an option that is listed in their flyer.

    Thought I'd throw one in to show what the tilt-tach does as well.

    Well, I went for the land leveler from quick-attach. I should see it in less than a week delivered to my doorstep. The whole setup including delivery and the flat faced couplers came to $2k. They were a informative and pleasant to deal with. I'll let you know how it works and the build quality once I get it. Depending on the need I'll look into the tilt-tach for the future.
