    Landscape Rake

    What do you think about a 6' landscape rack behind a 1025R? Raking grass and gravel drive and knocking down snow in the winter is what I see my uses for it. I was thinking originally about a 5', but got to wondering why not a 6'.......you know how that goes.

    I had the same question. Most of the people I spoke to said either one should work fine on a scut. It is a light weight implement and does not create a huge amount of drag on the tractor under normal use conditions. Of course I keep in mind I am not considered normal in most social settings.

    Not saying one way or the other but a full load of dirt and be pretty heavy to drag around. Could always remove 2 or 3 tines temporarily and make it a 5 ft if need be.

    I had a 6' York rake with scarifier back in the day. I used it behind my JD950. Loaned it to my X-FIL and never saw it again. Back on point........if you're going to use it for rough grading you're going to need plenty of power and traction. For light grading and top dressing you'd be OK. If you're using it with rippers or culling rocks and stones go with the smaller unit or as mentioned remove some tines on each end.

    Great idea on removing tines. Never thought about that. Thanks.

    I was concerned about that too. I have a little JD box blade with three rippers at about 4' or so and am interested in getting a rake for cleanup. I was just looking at everything attachments SCUT rake and TSC rakes both 5' and 6'. I have turf tires on and sometimes don't get the traction I would like.

    I have a 6' rake from TSC and have been using it on my SCUTS since the 2210 days. I maintain my driveway (est 1000' gravel) and yard with it. I have had zero problems on any of the tractors including the 1026r. Nice to use in the spring to clean up the small limbs that fall from snow and ice. I also used to it when I built my house to level the yard and pick up the larger rocks before planting grass. Nevere used to to plow snow.

    thanks for the info billie....I was wondering about TSC rakes and how they held up. I was a little worried and was leaning towards everything attachments but cost was holding me back but worrying about the quality of the county line rakes kept me looking at EA. they have one heck of a video for their rakes. they look like they can really take it.
    I might have to take another run by TSC and take another peek. no problem with the 6 foot on the 1026R? good to hear.

    Just FYI, I have the ETA 6' rake and the 1025r can just barely lift it when the gage wheels are installed. Pulling it is not a problem.

    Wow, that surprises me. Most landscape rakes are not real heavy. Is this a real heavy duty unit or something?
