    Landscape rake gage wheels.

    Several year ago I owned a landscape rake with gage wheels. I loved the rake with the gage wheels but the problem with it was that the gage wheels were to close to the rake so they would not spin all the way around.

    Yesterday about 60 tons of crushed limestone gravel was delivered to top coat the drive to my pole barn. To level out the gravel, I picked up a new Frontier 2072 landscape rake with gage wheels.
    After I got it home, I found it has the same problem as the old rake. The gage wheels are to close to the rake, so the wheels will not spin all of the way around.

    I used the rake on my 1026R without the top link connected. It worked great for leveling out the gravel, except I could not back up because the gage wheels would jam against the rake & make ruts.
    For a temporary fix, I used a ratchet strap as the top link. I left it loose so it just slightly lifted the gage wheels off of the ground when I raised the 3 point.

    Is there any reason not to extend the gage wheels out far enough to allow the wheels to rotate all the way around?

    Is a washer that should go between the rake and the wheel? Can you post a picture of what you are talking about?

    No help with the wheel issue but I've been using my rake with a piece of chain in place of the top link.

    Thank you.
    That sounds like a better fix. I will work on that after I get my new tractor.

    My thoughts exactly. The only thing I can think of is that having the wheels close to the rake maintains a more even height when driving the tractor over an uneven surface.

    How do you control the depth of drag/cut?
