    Default Implement advice and opinions, please.

    Hello all,
    I am considering purchasing a landscape rake to clear my land (all flat, lots of small sticks and rocks), part of it will eventually be a building site along with an outbuilding or two and pastures. I am looking at King Kutter, Woods and Howse. I would appreciate any input anyone has regarding these brands or any other brands. They seem to be the most popular and are easily available. I'm also considering a rear blade or box blade. Advice on those would also be appreciated.
    As always, thanks.

    I bought a frontier landscape rake - I love it. The medium 72" unit - it really helps clean stuff up.

    I'd suggest you get a rake with gauge wheels if you are trying to pick up debris. That way you can let the rake "float" at just above surface level and not worry about digging into your yard/pasture or having your debris dumped everytime the tractor hits a bump.

    I just picked up a slightly used 5ft Bush Hog rake with wheels and so far it seems like a very nice tool.

    I don't own a rake, but my suggestion on the box blade is to buy the heaviest you can afford.
