 harley rake/power rake

Can somone explain to me exactly how a power rake (or HArley rake) works? It looks like a big laundry wringer with wheels and a 3PT hitch. How does it go about separating the rocks, etc. to the side?

I've also wondered how those things work. I looked at one from Land Pride on a dealers lot before I knew what it was. I think you set it at an angle similar to a rear blade then the rotating drum sorta kicks the rocks into a swath. Maybe someone can help us both out. Frank.

 harley rake/power rake

Harley is a brand of power rake sometimes called a soil conditioner or preparator. I have one for my TC33D that is 6' wide--it takes a fair amount of HP to use it effectively. The principle is simple: the rotating drum has carbide teeth on them staggered in a several spirals--this way HP is transferred to just a few teeth in contact with the ground rather than a straight line of teeth which would cause jumping and use more HP. Depending on how low/deep the drum sits in the ground as it pulled forward in the highest position it can remove grass and weeds at their roots and throw them forward or to the side in a windrow (if tilted to one side or the other like a scraper blade). In the deepest postion it will take 8" deep solid dry clay and fluff it up in one pass (one, SLOW pass!). In any position--high or low--if it encounters a rock or brick it will literally roll it out of the ground and keep rolling it until it trails off or windrows or falls in a low spot. I use mine to rototill my garden (deep position), and to regrade my .7 mile gravel road in the medium-high position (about 1-1/2" deep).
