    Picking up my Ratchet Rake tonight!

    I can't wait! Searched the forum and found a few helpful tips but I just wanted to see if anyone had any more advice since it's been out there a few years now. Got the 52" from TSC for $269 due to a 10% off discount they sent me on any purchase.

    Looking forward to your experiences with it. I just might have some uses for one of those that may even justify further expense on my tractor!

    I have the 72" for my 300CX with 72" heavy duty bucket with a knife edge on it. I like it very much. It does an excellent job pulling rocks, removing roots and for smoothing things out. I got mine at TSC. I guess that they were looking to stop selling the 72" and thus many, myself included, were able to get them for a very good price. I am sure you will like it.

    Sweet thanks Rob! I am going to put it to the test this weekend if it stops raining. I will report back. For those who aren't sure what the RR is here is the link in case someone else on here is interested as this is the site that I learned of the RR's existance lol.

    The RR is a great tool! I used mine to clear out an area where I'll be digging a pond. I was amazed at how I could dig out rocks and stumps. It was great for tearing out small trees. Here are some before and after pics...

    Finally got to put the RR to use today cutting back some trails through some evil brush. It is as advertised and is awesome! I feel like if you have a FL this thing should be mandatory equipment.

    Picked mine up a few weeks back after reading about it on the forum. Definitely a good purchase. Even my wife said it was well worth the money. I know you will enjoy it.
