"york rake" for a snow plow??

Recommended Posts

Hello everyone.   The snow is finally melting and soon I will have yard work to do!  Between the chickens and my snow plowing there is quite a bit of raking needing to be done in the yard this spring.  I cant afford to buy a small york rake so I was wondering if anyone has tried fastening teeth of some sort to a board or piece of steel and then just clamping or bolting this to a snow plow so the teeth hang down below the cutting edge of the plow and rake the yard this way?!?  I could lean the blade forward which would tilt the teeth back to change the aggressiveness of them. 

 

I was thinking 3/4" wide band iron or hay rake tines for teeth.  Am I crazy???

I don't think your crazy. How do they say? Necessity is the mother of all inventions. If it works for your purpose then it s a great idea.

Just remember, we desire pictures.

There is no pictures.    I thought the plow/rake would work better than a tow behind because it would be easier to pile up the debris instead of continually dragging it around.

Push into a pile, raise the blade and back up to get some more.   Its tough to back up with a drag behind rake.  I am going to TSC today I will post pictures as I progress.
