Iíve been buying all kinds of new toys since I bought my tractor.
The good - My first purchase was a set of Titan pallet forks. Iím very pleased with them. All the welds look good. I also purchased some of Kennyís hook combos which work great. Thank you Kenny. Next were a tooth bar, dual receive hitch, ripper-sub soiler-potato plow-middle buster and 500 pounds of weights from Greg at Heavy Hitch. I havenít used the middle buster but everything else is top notch. Thanks Greg.
The bad - My latest purchase was a 6 foot landscape rake from Titan. I was going to buy one from EA but with gauge wheels it would of been about $1200.00. Titan had a sale on them and I had a one time use discount code. So I put the rake and gauge wheels in the cart and entered the code. Wow...the final price was $502.00. I couldnít turn that down. I donít know if the rake is American made but I could find no Ďmade in Chinaí marks on it. Assembly was tedious since the only instructions were a bad diagram and parts list. The rake is not quick hitch compatible. Iím sure I can modify it but wasnít expecting that. Now I havenít actually used the rake because Iím not taking the quick hitch off. Maybe Iíll change my mind about the rake once I actually can use it. One of the wheels was badly cracked (they're sending a new one) and the brace weld wonít let me turn the rake 360 deg. A grinder will fix that.
The ugly - Me. When I was assembling the rake I stepped over it, with both hands full of tools, and something caught my pant leg and I did a face plant onto the grave drive. Ouch. Nothing was broken just bruised so Iím glad of that. More about the rake later.
Yes, I know my baby is filthey. She's due for a bath this week.
