    Default Questions Regarding: LANDSCAPE RAKES

    REGARDING THREE-POINT HITCH MOUNTED LANDSCAPE RAKES:


    How important is the spring action of the tines?
    (ETA Landscape Rake has heavier-than-most tines, but has a 1/8" gap above and below each tine so tines can spring without encountering frame of implement.)

    How often are Landscape Rakes used in the "normal"/"forward" position, being pulled by the tractor while collecting woods debris?

    How often are Landscape Rakes used with the rake reversed and the tractor pushing the rake to collect woods debris?

    Advantages/Disadvantages of pulling/pushing with a Landscape Rake?

    Can Landscape Rakes be rotated 180 degrees with optional gauge wheels in place? NEVER? SOMETIMES? ALWAYS? DEPENDS ON BRAND?

    I have settled on width, 72" for my kubota with 59" tire width.

    Operationally, what else should I consider?

    Anyone enraptured over a particular brand of rake?

    THANKS!

    I never use my rake reversed to push backwards. I will use it reversed going forward if I just want to scratch the surface, such as grass seeding or driveway grooming when I don't want to dig into the surface too deep.
    To collect debris, I use it in the forward position while going forward.

    For the more affordable rakes, I like ETA. For the more costly units I like the 36 series Land Pride units. But they don't offer a 6 footer in that series.
