 Anyone familiar with Landpride rake?

I am looking for an 84" rake for my L35 (5'6" wheel width)for use in a part time landscaping business. I would like to spend as little as possible while getting a rake that will last for a long time under moderate use. I have my eyes on a Landpride LR1584 whick is available for $850 including wheels. It is the lightest duty of the Landpride rakes but is still considerably heavier than the lightest duty Woods. Does anyone have any experience with this or other models or have any words of wisdom for choosing a rake?

Thanks

I have the LR1584 Landscaping Rake and I love mine. It is MUCH more heavily built than the King Kutter and other brands in my opinion. I use mine to maintain my gravel drive way. They are substantially more costly than most others but depending on how much use you put them to may be justified. I got mine at a substantial discount and I doubt I would pay the usual asking price. They come with more options goodies such as the grading wheels that some others don't have. I am sure you will be very happy with it but if you have very occasional light use in mind you just may be better off with the King Kutter. Shop and compare is about all you can do. Good luck!

As Chief mentioned the Land Pride is a solid unit.

Rakes are something, like other 'ground-engaging' implements, which just works better if it's a little on the heavy side.

They are well built units, we use them constantly and other than the odd tine bent from an imovable object they have certainly stood up to everything my guys can do to them.

Best of luck.

I just used my 1584 this morning to level crushed rock in a driveway. This is the only thing I've used it for so far as I just got it a couple weeks ago. It really worked nice. Mine doesn't have the wheel kit, but by going slow and keeping one hand on the 3pt. lever you can do a nice job. The gravel truck had spread it as he dumped, then I set the angle of the rake to sort of swath the rock to the center of the drive then set the angle back to straight and just leveled down the swath. There might be a more proper method but this is my first experience with a rake, so if I'm doing it wrong somebody with more experienc let me know. Frank.

You could do a lot worse than Landpride, they make excellent products. I have a York, which was for years the industry standard - I swear by it, not at it. If you are a legal business, licensed and all that good stuff, you should be well aware that the purchase price of the best rake can be written off, either in your first year of use or over several years. You'll get depreciation value too. The IRS just revised its rules for equipment purchases for businesses, actually in our favor for a change. So, being a business has financial advantages over the average buyer. Check with your accountant, it probably will be extra money up front, but you'll get almost half of it back either in the form of refund or lower taxes.

Petrops, I agree with the previous posters that Landpride is good quality and makes a nice rake. Shop around for a better price, Last fall I bought my LP 3584 w/out wheels for $916. out the door. With the 35 series you have the ability to offset the rake and have nine diff. angle postions.

Thanks David and all.

It seems like the word is that Landpride makes a good product. David that seems like a good price for a very heavy duty rake and only a bit more than the light duty with wheels. In your opinion is there value to wheels (I have no idea what the value is) and what is the liability of getting the lighter duty version, is it really a bit frail?

Thanks again to everyone

I can see no value to having wheels if you have hydraulic 3ph, but I have never had one with wheels, I would recommend buying the heavy duty. I just use the position control to determine how low or high I want to rake Good Luck

Petrops, the value of wheels comes into play when you are working with fine materials like inch. minus gravel or sand and loam. It allows you a very uniform depth of your material, especially on uneven ground.
