With snow rapidly melting leaving limbs, gravel from the driveway and other debris I find myself trying to push it away with my manual lift solid link snow blade and I have enough sensation and control to actually have some success of pushing the gravel without too much damage to the turf but I'm wishing for a front mount rake to help. I have a 48" York rake with a clevis hitch that works very well but first I have to drive over what I'd rather push out of the way and I certainly lose some control having to drop the load behind rather than pushing precisely where I'd like to have it so I'd still like a front mount rake, just like the dozer blade actually. I suppose I could remove the dozer blade and somehow mount the York on the front but the more I think of it I'd also like lighter duty springs, then heavy spikes, then some short forks to perhaps lift and carry some small brush and a 48" push broom! Last year I tried to finish most snowfalls by making a final pass with a push broom which didn't really remove the snow but rather mix it with sand or at least break up the snow and the Sun took care of the rest. It worked splendidly actually! So what I'm thinking about is using a dozer blade frame and creating a way to "Quik-Attach" a broom, spikes/teeth, rake and forks to the front. Now one could skip the "Quik-Attach" part and just buy 4 more tractors with dozer blades and even though that is a marvelous justification to add 4 more to the herd I'd at least consider multiple attachments for now! Am I doing a reasonable job of describing what I'd like? Anybody done anything like that? Heck, so much of the hard work is already done with the blade frame and I don't think the springs would even be necessary for the other attachments. Some sort of quick mount on the frame and then a counter part on each attachment should make it all work. Ideas? Or heck, it wouldn't surprise me if someone has already done it. Or seen it?
r1jakecfd posted a topic in Implements and AttachmentsHi Guys, Just wondering if anyone has any experience/opinions with the Agri-Fab Slot Hitch 4' Landscape Rake? I'm wondering how it compares to the York Tow-Behind 4' rake. Thanks in advance, John
Hi Guys, I found a Tow-behind model TA1 York rake on craigslist and bought it the other day. I love it so far. I have a couple quick questions... 1.) How do you know how worn the teeth are and when they need replacement? 2.) Has anyone incorporated a weight system on the rake? If so, how? Thanks, John Essex, Ma
