    Help needed for my 5' Titan rake please....

    Ok I just put together my titian rake and like other have said the directions suck.

    I did ask titian directly about some questions I had when I was putting it together about the wheels and they told me to do the opposite of what was required. (so I had to disassemble it and redo it wasting 2 hours)

    So my question is anyone have this rake that can tell me what I need to do to be able to use my JD QH or is that not possible?

    Besides the crappy directions this looks like a decent piece of equipment.

    Any advice would be welcome. (I have their forks and they are awesome)

    Thanks

    Should be a matter of putting on the cat 1 bushings on the rake. Is the top hook not accessible by the QH? That's usually the show stopper for any implement that is not QH compatible.

    A picture would help us figure out your issue. I have a Tartar rake and really like it. No wheel kit though.

    Yes the top link seems to be the show stopper..

    Well I went to the Titan Website and looked at it. Seems all models are the same just the width is different. The picture on the website shows one that doesn't look like its' QH compatible but the picture in the owners manual appears to be QH compatible.

    Does yours have a bolt that connects the A frame together or is there a plate welded there?

    X5. Please post some photos of the 3PH area of your rake with details of the point where the top-link attaches.

    Wow... that's a tough one. It's the classic blocked top-link though. I've seen guys with similar configurations fabricate a box above the top-link area and then run the diagonal support to the back of the box. You need to be able to get rid of that support member under the top-link hole.

    Thanks for the idea and taking the time to help! I like the idea now I have to see if I can get one made.

    Here's a thought. May be easier?
    That single bar going up at a 45, get another. Instead of putting between the tabs, with another flat bar, put one outside the tabs on both sides and bolt them in place.
    Run the flat bars on the inside (like the single) to the bottom hole for the top link, but add a bushing between them and then bolt them together.
    That will leave the very top holes vacant. This might work?

    You may need to use some washers as shims above or below, or both places.
