    Frontier LR5048L landscape rake

    Just picked up my 48" landscape rake from the dealer today. Been looking for used for about 6 month, but nothing came up that peaked my interested, was small enough, or close enough to be considered a deal.

    Just did a major renovation with new septic, waterproofing entire foundation, garage and weeping tile, so my 1,1/3 acre lot had been turned into a rocky dirt pile.
    I could not find a small one to rent or buy used so bite the bullet and picked this up from jd.

    From doing a little research, the "50" series seems to have been design for the scut machine, particularly the 1 series rated a 18 pto hp. The price on these units was also much more in-line with what i was looking to pay for a "one time use" implement.

    Whats nice about the "50" series is the wheel kit is much more affordable then the other models. At $230 versus $380 (for the "20" series) I decided to add them to my order in hope of extending the use of the rake to leaves, branches, pine needles and still protecting the lawn.

    Whats also nice about the wheel kit for the "50" series, is it can be ordered with the rake and be discounted. The "20" series is a parts order and you pay full price.

    Ran it around for about 30 min this afternoon, and looks like it will do a great job as it was pulling up some rocks i could not even see.

    For reference, here are the pricing i was looking at in Cdn funds.

    LR5048L $605 Wheel kit $230 Paid $770
    LR5060L $696 Wheel Kit $230
    LR2060L $765 Wheel Kit $380 Quoted $1117

    Thanks for the write-up! I'm looking forward to seeing the before and after pics with some comments about how it works. I'm interested in maybe acquiring a rake myself so your input is greatly appreciated.

    Looks as if it may be hard to remove/replace individual tines?
    Can you do a full 360 swing with it attached to the tractor?
    BTW, you won't regret the wheel kit.

    You can swing it 360, but with the wheel kit on you have to remove one wheel to clear the frame.

    The tines are held on in three groups. So it looks like you can just loosen a section and pop the old one out. Here's a pic of the construction.


    (Ok no pic, it's telling me its an invalid file on tap talk from an iPhone. Will post up later. )

    Nice! Look forward to the picture.
    Once you get accustom to this thing it will amaze you. My wife does a far better job with one of these than I can.
    I'll say it again, good choice on the wheel kit.

    Been using this rake for spring, mainly flattening and leveling loose dirt getting ready for seed.

    Today I got to hit the back and put the rake to work. The contractor used left over material to fill over the back. Including part of the old driveway thrown in.

    Major limitation here was the new septic bed was only about 6" deep, so I was limited to just scraping the surface to avoid damage.

    Rake worked very well to loosen and remove the rocks.

    I borrowed a 7' King Cutter landscape rake from a friend over the weekend. I wanted to rake the leaves and twigs that came down over the winter. I did not use it much, because I discovered that big thing does more damage than good. A 4 ' or 5' rake may work better. But after that experience, I am not a real believer in such a tool.
