For the life of me, I must ask the big advantage of wheels on a landscape rake? I mean...it's up in the air for non-use and down for use? Would someone please straighten me out w/this one? :think:
Set the draft control speed to "Float", and tighten up the upper link to increase the tine angle, and wheels aren't needed. Just let the weight of the rake do it's thing.
I can see having the wheels for use on machines, without any sort of decent draft control however
It's better to pay up front, than on a replacement later, and have parts as well as support available if they are needed.
I bought a 6' King Kutter landscape rake last summer. I have other King Kutter products and like them it works great! They are priced very good and built tough.I've been thinking about purchasing a landscape rake for my 3320. Can anyone recommend a good brand? I do like the wheels but don't know if they're necessary.
Capnbill--is this what ur getting.I have got a LR1072 frontier rake and I am putting on a wheel kit to be able to do kind of finish work on properties. I saw one and I like it very much.
Nice rake set-up! A rake with wheel kit is my next purchase...gonna use it here shortly to prep some yard areas for seeding. Right now I'm trying to decide on the width that'll work best in between the trees in my yard...60" or 72".Capnbill--is this what ur getting. View attachment 147809
heres another pic. View attachment 147817 the only complaint I have with the kit is-the locking collars-sometimes u just can't seem to get the set screws tight enough to stay-other then that-wonderful piece of add on. I bought the add on kit around 2010 roughly for a little over $300-IIRC.
IMHO, at full angle,,, you do not loose more than 3 inches of width,,,So I'd be best served to go with a 6' rake on a 1025r, providing that it covers the wheels at max angle? A 5' rake probably isn't wide enough when angled, judging by how far my 60" mmm sticks out past the tires.
