 Trouble with a rake

This may be a dumb question but, here goes anyway. I am spreading and leveling 90 tons of 2B, I have gotten it fairly level with the bucket (TC33D)but would really like to smooth it out. I have a 5ft landscape rake and every time the rear tires go over a hump the rake lifts up if I lower it more it digs too deep. I think I need wheels for the rake but not sure. Any help would be much appreciated 90 tons of stone is alot to rake by hand. Thanks Dr.V

 Trouble with a rake

Doc, you have the diagnosis correct, you need gauge wheels on the back of your rake.

If you want to further limit the effect of the wheels going over the bumps you need a 'traveller', which is basically just a small trailer frame which connects to your 3pth (or drawbar) and runs on two wheels at the rear, the implement, your rake in this case, hitches to the traveller at the half-way point between the tractor's 3pth and the traveller's rear wheels. This reduces the vertical travel by limiting the amount of travel to half the distance either the front or back of the traveller moves up & down. These are normally used for very fine work such as levelling ground.

Best of luck.

 Trouble with a rake

I don't know if there are dips in the grade that need to be filled or if the idea is just to smooth loose surface stone. The last load of pit run I put on the drive had more stone in it than I'd like so parts of the drive still have loose surface stone on it. Smoothing it and having it stay that way is difficult if you don't have access to the equipment Murf described.

For surface smoothing, I have pretty good luck back-dragging a fairly flat loader bucket in float if you haven't tried that already. My box scraper rolled back on its rear cutter also does a pretty good job.

I haven't resorted to making a drag myself, but that might be an alternative. For light surface smoothing, chain-link fencing between two 2x4's or 4x4's would be pretty good. If some moving of material and filling dips is needed, chain-link fencing wrapped around a length of heavier timber would pick up material ahead of it and deposit it in dips provided the timber is longer than the dips. If dips are the full width of a drive, the drag could be angled slightly although the leading end may dig in a bit.

Thanks for the ideas, Murph any idea where I can get a traveller I have never seen one. Tom I have a drag board for use with a disc I never thought to use it for leveling stone. Thanks again.

All the ones I have seen, including ours, were custom made. Any welding shop (or yourself if you're handy) can make one in a few hours. The parts shouldn't cost more than a couple hundred dollars for a really spiffy one.

Best of luck.
