Shooterdon, Is that something you fabricated yourself or did you find it for sale somewhere? How about a pic of that adapter sometime - sounds like a great idea!I have an adapter plate that lets me mount 3 PH implements on the SSQA. I use my landscape rake that way as well as a light duty blade I got for $100 to back blade snow from the garage and to windrow light snowfalls so the blower has something to blow.
Nice not to have to keep turning around and easier to get near trees and other stuff.
I got it for $225 but it has gone up....but inflation is "transitory" so it may come back down...lolShooterdon, Is that something you fabricated yourself or did you find it for sale somewhere? How about a pic of that adapter sometime - sounds like a great idea!
I've got a grapple rake on my skid steer but unfortunately I have very little terrain other than a few skid trails that the skid steer can handle, and even those have sections that I can only work by backing uphilll. So, I'm mostly using the Ventrac to rake material in selected areas and move it to the skid trails where I can grab it with the skid steer grapple rake and pile it for burning. Interesting idea on the harley rake.I’ve done some clearing after forestry mulched. We typically get a rake grapple for the skid steer and get the majority of it up. Then used a Harley rake angled to smooth the area and with it angled it will create windrows of debris you can basically get into a line. Usually only takes us a day to do 2-3 acres. The tough part is pull behind rakes get jammed up with debris and much of the debris is still sunk in the soil. Harley rakes are great for this. If it’s a option to rent one from a local place it will save you much time in the long run.
