    Used this the other day. Graded out 43,000 sq. ft in about 4 hrs. Worked pretty well after all the bugs were worked out. Machine is great on loose material, but does not dig in automatic mode. You can switch to manual and push dirt and then switch back to auto for fine grading. Got it to 1/2" or better.

    when they re-did some of the baseball fields by my house they used one of those except it was being pulled behind a JD tractor. Very cool way on how to level a field.

    This particular manufacturer offers either skid or an adapter to fit it to 3 point for tractors

    what are the two black poles standing up on the box?? I assume that the GPS devices rest on top of them. The tractor one had them also and they had white discs on top of them and then over in the corner of the field was a tri-pod with a GPS computer on top of it.

    Will post this here,but will add a few others to your other thread that you might want to look at.

    This isn't dual grade,so you might not care,but for others that are just interested in doing flat pads they can check this one out.:usflag:

    That Jr. is standard equiment on an MTL. It allows for craning the machine onto the trailer for easier transport to the doctor.:cool2:




    When its actually running you can also crane it with an excavator into a foundation or similiar type situation.
