 Woods Landscape Rake

I am looking at the Woods Landscape Rake LR106-2 with a flip down grader blade and wheel set. The grader blade attachment looks like a good idea for driveway/road maintenance and snow removal. Has anyone used these combination implements? What are the pros and cons? Thanks guys.
Wally Stein

 Woods Landscape Rake

Wally; I've had a Land Pride landscape rake for quite a few years, I've never looked at a Woods, but I doubt there is a nickle's worth of difference, they both have high quality machines. I've never had the flip down blade or guage wheels for mine. I don't even own a common rear blade anymore. I use the landscape rake for everything from spreading crushed rock, draging soil around, pulling snow, etc., and have never once saw the need for the blade attachment, the guage wheels, maybe, but I get along fine without them too. The only time a blade would do better would be to scrape a clean surface on concrete wnen you blade snow as a bit of loose snow will sift thru beteween the forks of the rake, but darn little. A landscape rake is no different than a common rear blade in that the material other than snow must be loose by some other maens like a scarfifier in a box blade as neither one will tear loose solid soil. I would buy the rake without the blade and wheels till you see how it works then if you see the need get them later. Enjoy your day. Frank.

 Woods Landscape Rake

You want to cultivate a slight crown in the lane so water doesn't puddle. That means you adust the rake or blade so the left/right is higher or lower as you wish. There is likely a length adjuster on one of the vertical arms of the 3-pt hitch, but if you replace that arm with a handle-crank arm that you turn from the seat, you won't have to dismount and wrestle with wrenches for every adjustment.

If you can rotate the rake or blade you get somewhat the same results by changing the lenght of the third arm. kt

Snow removal? On Vancouver Island?

What's wrong with a hair dryer like everybody else does? Laughing out loud

Seriously, it should work just fine.

The gauge wheels should be independently adjustable by means of shuffling spacers (fat washers) between above & below the bracket they ride on similar to how the front caster wheels on commercial mowers work.

Best of luck.

 Woods Landscape Rake

I have a Woods landscape rake and like it for certain things but found I could never adjust it for consistancy. It was always digging too deep and carrying too much material or when I adjusted the top link for a less aggressive digging action, it did nothing but rake. I tried adjusting the digging action by raising the 3pt a bit, but I never could find just the right height either...it was always too high or too low.

I always thought having the guage wheel assembly attached would help alleviate this problem but never got around to it and now never use my rake as all of my landscaping chores are done.

I have a hard time understanding how one could use a landscape rake to move snow with it. I know I would just have the same problem I did when I was trying to shape my landscaping.

Brian

bvance, guess snow is like soils, a lot of variance in texture. Some soils here a rake will move remarkably well, then if you catch our sandy soils it just slips though like you are plowing it. Also the drier the soil the more it breaks apart and slips through the rake. I have move a good bit of soil with a rake also. Not my first choice but if short distance has worked well for me also. kt

I forgot about the comment on the rake digging in, I have found the speed seems to affect that for me. Slow speeds dig in more than little faster does.

Still, when someone asks what you've been doing, it would be nice to be able to say, "I've been raking the snow!"
