    Spring cleanup with lawn dethatcher

    I was having trouble finding a lawn dethatcher that was big enough for my 2720 so I built my own. I know its off season but I just came across the pictures . They may help out if someone is thinking of doing the same thing . I bought 2 48"tow behinds from my local hardware store and converted into a 3PTH model . It works quite well.

    Nice build......
    Mine is very similar.... At least my second version.... First attempt worked OK, just plugged up too easily....
    I plan to build a 3pt lift for the front of my tractor, and I can turn the rake around so it will work out ahead of my MMM...

    Keep up the good work and post results...

    Enjoy

    Wyobuckaroo, I am glad you posted. I knew I saw another custom built unit but could not find the post for pitboss.

    I like the front 3pth idea. I'm looking forward to some pictures of it completed.

    That would be great! 12 foot ceilings or more than that? I'd love to build a nice sized building in the relatively near future and put an asymmetrical 2 post 7,000lb lift in it. Always interested in ideas and seeing others toy hangouts.
