    Every thing Attachments, I am considering the Pine rake, is it strong enough to rake small limbs and branches? I have a 35hp tractor what size would I want? How much would the shipping cost to Oregon be?

    I think it will be fine with small limbs and branches within reason as long as you use good judgement. We'll do $45 shipping for a 60" pine straw rake or $55 for a 72" to Oregon. Our pine straw rakes will ship via Fed-Ex ground to your home.

    Good advise from EverythingAttchments. I've been interested in a pine straw rake for leaves. Not sure I need it enough. Just remember a pine straw rake will not do well for soil or gavel, a land scape rake is designed for that.

    I have both types of rakes and would say that neither one will do a good job if the leaves are small. I use a material collection cart MC519 for leaves. Both of these implements are great for a variety of uses but raking leaves with them isn't their best use. I recommend you use a Stihl 600 backpack blower and a bagger or tarp to move them.

    If you have pine needles the pine straw rake Everything Attachments builds would be an excellent choice imo.

    You can shorten your toplink and use a rake but it will still cut in some. A rake works pretty good on a big pile. I have never used a pine straw rake so I can't comment on that. I do have a Stihl BR600 like Jenkinsph mentioned. It is a beast. I use mine year round. I even works good as a snow blower.

    I have a Stihl BG 86 that works well, I also have a blower I got from the hardware store, not so good. I decided that for yard tools and saws I would get real stuff like Sthil.

    What about using a rotary windrow hay rake?

    If you will be doing landscaping on a frequent basis you will likely need all of these implements at various times and stages of the year. A landscape rake is similar in use to a garden rake whereas the pine straw rake is more similar to a leaf rake but with wider spacings. I would add that this similarity carries over to raking loose dirt smooth too, if your dirt has several inches of variation in height or larger clumps of soil the landscape rake being more agressive will be more effective for you. The pinestraw rake will provide you with a smoother finish pass and is great to use if you need to cover seeds and where a harrow or drag would be difficult to manuever and use. Both are relatively inexpensive implements, I recommend you have both if you can swing it.
