    What rake do I need?

    Tractor supply has a 5 foot country line rake on sale Black Friday for $400 (regularly $500). This is the yellow cat 1.
    Reading the question and answer section on their website someone asks if it will fit a JD1025R? This is the response from the expert:

    No you need the sku#2122468
    The difference is that sku# 2122468 (lighter duty, orange in color)is designed for sub-compact tractors, 15-25 pto hp with CAT0 spacing at the lift arms, and sku# 2122280 (heavier duty, yellow in color)is designed for tractors 25-35 pto with CAT1 spacing at the lift arm

    I thought the 1025r was a cat 1? Also the lighter duty orange color one is $529 even though it weighs 18 #’s less and my understanding not as heavy duty.
    I have a JD quick hitch and living in Missouri and our rocks here would much rather have the heavier duty rake. Plus it is cheaper right now. Will it fit?
    Thanks guys and hope you all had a Happy Thanksgiving!

    Your 1025R is Limited Cat 1.

    The Limited part refers to lift height (you are closer to the ground with smaller rear wheels) as apposed to width.

    The Cat 1 rake will fit your tractor and the iMatch hitch. You just cannot lift it as high it as high.
    Taking the easy way is what makes rivers and men crooked.

    Thank you so much and now I get it! Might be a mute point now, I just looked and shipping to the store is an additional $184! That jumps the total price close enough to the frontier rake to put it back in my sights. Of course no tractor supply anywhere near me stocks them.

    Thanks MacCool! Do you happen to know if the titan is IMatch compatible? If so this just might be the one for me to look into!

    Just by the looks of it, I'd say no.

    If the pictures are accurate, the Titan is not I-Match compatible and the TSC 'yellow' rake is. Also, the Titan website does not say their rake is I-Match compatible.

    Greg, I can't comment/debate pto horsepower or the "expert" opinion that it won't work/fit, But here's my hands-on experience.

    A few years back I bought a Cat 1, 5 foot landscape rake for my 317 with a Cat 0 3-pt. I removed the Cat 1 pins from the rake and installed Cat 0-Cat 1 adapter pins. Made up some spacers/bushings so the 5/8" bolt for the Cat 0 top link fits the 3/4" holes in the Cat 1 rake...bushing may be commercially available, don't know. Mounted it up and NO PROBLEMS, my 317 pulls it with ease. Bob

    I have a TSC County Line 5' 'yellow', I-Match compatible landscape rake. It fits perfectly on the 1025R and the 1025R can pull it easily.

    That said, to get the rake tines high enough to provide some clearance when lifted so that the tines do not drag when loading in my trailer or starting up a slope, you have to shorten your top link all the way.

    I have a hydraulic top link now so I can lengthen and shorten mine on the fly now. Prior to that, it was a little more complicated.

    Now, this issue of 3 point implements dragging when transitioning from level ground to a slope isn't anything new on a 1 series. It is sort of the nature of the beast since they are low to the ground, hence the limited category 1 3 point.

    The one thing I do not like about the County Line rake is it does not have a parking stand to hold the 3 point connection end raised. This was a must for me as I didn't want to have to lift the rake to install it, it is pretty heavy, and I didn't want to prop it up with something else so I fabricated a stand and installed.
