I've got a 1650 with the rear lift, and I'm wanting a land plane. The one I'm looking into weighs 233 pounds. Xtreme has there 3 point conversion and they say it offers 35% greater lifting capacity over the stock rear lift. My question is, what is the stock rear lift capacity? I've looked for about 3 hours online and can't find anything that gives a spec. Thanks in advance guys...

It will lift that much with no problem.

The issues will arise when you add dirt to the equation.

I would add a spring assist to cover your butt later on. Just sayin.

I figured it would lift it, but I wasn't sure if it would when I'm coming to the end of a drive way, when there is gravel on the blades. A spring assist is a good idea, I'll get that installed as well. Thanks for the advice digger.

Weight/traction will be the issue, not power. I'd put it on the 185 if I were you.
Yes, I agree the loboy would not have an issue. They make 4 1/2 for box blades specifically for a garden tractor, and a land plane has less dragging resistance than a box blade. And it's a better tool for what I need to do. Box blades are lighter, usually around 150lbs for garden tractor applications, but they carry a massive amount more dirt when in use. Land planes, are heavier, between 200-250lbs, depending on brand and accessories, but have less resistance while in use. Traction will be less of an issue with a land plane than a box blade, but lifting it off the ground will be more work for the tractor, especially with the weight hanging farther off the back, versus a box. I need to use the 1650 because I am grading the 4 miles of ski trails on my property, and they are about 6 foot wide for the most part, with turns the loboy can't make, but the 1650 can without slowing down. I'm guessing the lift capacity was never published, as it's not in any manual that I have, and can't find it any where online.

A #2 is 225 according to the setup manual, but that would include the gearbox which should not be factored into the equation.
If you have an issue lifting you could put some wheels on it like a York rake has.
