I decided to get a Landscape Rake for snow removal this winter. Problem is a section of the drive is freshly turned, soft, and not frozen yet. 3" of snow with 5-7" drifts of fluffy powder and I was a little reluctant to use the Rake.
To improve the performance, we slit a 6' piece of 2" pipe with a gap of about 1" the entire length. We welded a piece of 20 gage galvanized sheet metal to the pipe. Blew 1/2" holes in the sheet metal at each corner and the middle. Bought 3 bungee cords, strapped it onto the Rake Tines, and good to go.
When, if, it warms up a bit, I will bend the sheet metal and install on the inside of the tines. As far as the first try, it really worked well. Still moved too much gravel in the one reworked section, but it was very loose to begin with. The amount of snow really didn't justify plowing, except for the drifts. I let it down all the way for the entire 1/2 mile of drive. The sections I hadn't been grading look great. With the 6' blade behind the 1025R and at max angle, all I needed was one pass down the road and a pass back and done. Never even had to adjust blade angle.
Pleased so far.
