    I know what you mean about the muck getting heavy. I raked some moss out today and was surprised how little it took to get a load. Schultz I now have the attachments to get the moss out of my ponds without touching or lifting it. I plan to post pics of it later. Good luck with yours. I know forking that stuff is no fun.

    That's right LOL when I get ready to paint it, it will be red. I will make some more pics of this rake if anyone is interested. I know not many people would have a use for this thing. I know I sure do and so far it is working great!!!

    Could you share more pictures of the design and some action shots? It looks like it would fit my needs. I would need to build a mount for my FEL, but I really like the folding design. Would make transporting a lot easier than a 15' pipe sticking out in front of the tractor [img]/forums/images/graemlins/blush.gif[/img].

    Here is a pic of the knuckle. You just let the rake fold out on the ground or pond bottom as to take the pressure off the slide catch, pull the rope that runs through the pipe(connected to the slide catch) and lift or lower and pull and let off the rope. I hope this makes since.

    After I have knuckled and dragged. Here is a pic of the lifting. The knuckle lets you lift many times more.

    geez, someone has too much red paint lying around.

    What, you hit your head so many times on the ROPS that you decided to paint it a color that you couldn't miss?

    LOL The red paint is a family tradition. But if you will look close you can see some red hose placed in just the right place on the ROPs for the head beatings. Even though I built my rops higher than the OEM I still managed to beat my head against it. Ouch!!!!!!
