    Have you consider rake w/fold down blade?

    Thomas,
    Do you have one? I'm curious that if so, how do you like it? I have one and the blade is just about useless for anything but light snow. I want to sell mine and buy a dedicated rake, and a dedicated blade.

    Piston, you know which rear blade that you need and it is not the one that you have.

    Well my primary need was for my gravel lane, to level and smooth it out. It has twenty years of packing and figured I was going to need the teeth that are on the box blade. Now after mowing the yard today, it appears that it is in need of some serious repair also. So now I am thinking the rake and box blade. Either that or just get some Roundup and spray it then start all over.

    That's basically what I did... Except I had major drainage issues.. A grader blade wasn't doing this kind of work.. I think I'm going to sell my woods grader blade, but I know as soon as I do, I'll need it.. Picking up a used York rake this week, so I'll have all three...
