    New to me landscape rake

    I just picked up this LR1172 with wheel kit for $500. I feel like this was a really good deal. I can’t find any information on this model on the web. Anybody have one of these and have any pointers on adjusting the wheels and using this thing.

    A good deal?? Are you kidding!! JD wants $513 just for the wheel kit on one of these rakes!! How do you sleep at night? :-)

    Typically you adjust the wheels according to the amount of depth you want to rake. You can adjust it from just skimming the surface up to applying the fully weight of the rake. It all depends on the surface and type of debris you are gathering.

    You can also angle to push debris over to the side.

    The only caution is to not push backwards against the tines. Always move with the tines facing the direction of travel.

    You can download the Operator's Manual from the JD site here:

    Thanks for the link, and the pointers. I got this from a Case IH dealership, I guess they didn’t know about the JD prices. Adjusting the wheel height is really the biggest question I had. I’m sure it’s pretty straight forward and I can figure it out.

    You pull the lynch pin and move the little spacers around until the wheel height is where you want. More spacers below the mount will lower the wheel. More spacers above the mount will raise the wheel.
