View Full Version : Power Raking Time....

Anyone have ideas on how long the process takes.....Figure I rent an actual power rake, and I want to do an acre with clean-up. How long should that take figureing no trees, other structure, etc.

I have no idea, but would guess around 3-4 hours....

It would take me all day.

Actually that makes sense. I was thinking the half acre would take 3-4 hours...

I just did a 1/2 acre lot, the back is all hill. Took myself and one other guy just under 4 hours to power rack, hand rack, load trailer, dump trailer and get back to the shop. Been awhile since I did one but I was happy with the time frame. I have a huge S/C on Thursday and it looks like its going to be a long day.

Good Luck Mike
