    Default caster wheels or gage wheels available?

    Is it possible to attach caster wheels or gage wheels to a JD landscape rake? Can you get them from Tractor supply?

    I used that rake a lot last summer, and it did a great job, but wheels seem like they would help, and I have a lot more work for the rake this spring and summer.

    PS - I did a search before I posted, but got nada.

    What model is the rake? If you don't know the model post a pic and hopefully someone can ID it.Some of the frontier rakes are made by woods.

    Gage wheels on a landscape rake do help significantly for leveling. I bought a used Land Pride rake last fall and I was so impressed with the gage wheels, I welded plates on my box blade so I could use the gage wheels on that as well. I am not familiar with the JD landscape rake, but if you can weld or have a friend that does, I would not think it would take much to adapter third party gage wheels to your rake or even make your own gage wheels. Check out this thread:

    Stonehaller, thanks for the link. I didn't find that when I searched, but it is exactly what I was looking for.

    I am not sure who makes that rake. It looks similar to a Land pride but the are not 100% alike.
