 Landscape rake vs. hand rake

I recently pruchased a LandPride Landscape rake. As anyone that has one knows, these things will do a lot of work and even some damage if you are not careful.While I have used it for dozens of jobs and practically created a road with it, one job seems to be problematic. I have a lot of space where I just need to do light cleaning such as leaves, smaller rocks and small branches. The LandPride is just too heavy and aggressive no matter how hard I try.What I really need to do is replace hand rake tasks. I have 2 areas, one of which is 12,000 square feet making it impossible to hand rake.Anyone figured a way to do this kind of work ?

 Landscape rake vs. hand rake

I saw a post somewhere about a month ago where a guy had an adjustable rear wheel attached to the rake to set the depth properly. If I recall he was working gravel but it might be workable for you/

 Landscape rake vs. hand rake

We used our landscape rack to build a golf course and we found that at times we needed to: 1.remove every other tooth, 2.remove every third tooth, 3. C-clamp an angel iron across the teeth to help with grade. All of these ideas worked to some extent and we used each of them at different times but the best idea we used was to make a short center link and by tilting the rack as far foward as possible we found that we could do all the finish work we needed.Golf course is 18 holes mostly through the woods and we never hand raked any of this land. GOOD LUCK

 No Easy Way

There is simply no easy way to address the problem of rocks. A landscape rake is a big help but you will always have to pick some up the way the old timers did - by hand. If the solutions offered in the other posts don't work for you I suggest that you get a trailer that you can pull behind your tractor. Something with fat tires (if possible). You will be surprised at (a) how many rocks you can pick up in a short time , and (b) how many rocks you find. I don't know what the practice is in your area, but in the Ozarks it is common practice to burn off leaves and winter fall down in the Spring, just before green up. If you burn first, the rocks will be easy to find. If the ground in your area freezes you can expect to find rocks on the surface every year. I like to burn and then clear the rocks. Much easier on the rotary cutter (brush hog) in the Summer and Fall.

 Landscape rake vs. hand rake

I don't know if this is available, but from reading your post the first thought that came to me was a hay rake. Of course a hay rake is too big for what you want to do and the answer really lies with the tines. If the heavy flat tines could be replaced with the heavy wire ones used on a hayrake, you may get the gentle raking action you are looking for. Several could radiate off of each of the flat tines connection point. Just a thought SmileLee

 Landscape rake vs. hand rake

I have a 8FT landscape rake and if i Tilt it where the frount end is low and the back is high it will rake sticks and rocks out of the grass and you can't tell where it wen't across the grass . I pull it with a Kubota M4700 and think that the landscape rake is the be thing that i have bought .have 2 yards that i have to keep up and bulding a weekend home on the one . have a lot of rocks and sticks . Works great >>You can use a chain insted of your top link and get the frount of your rake closer to the tractor and it will work beter .Pete_k
