Why do you need hydro angle?

Because I want to windrow rocks and I dont want to open the door and let out all the the cold a/c to angle it!

I just never use the angle function, even when grading large commercial sites. I try to pull it back to the edges then scoop it up. If you have a bunch of windrows seems like a pain to scoop it up.

Would you recomend a 72" or 84" for a Kubota SVL 75?

Prob 72" unless you are doing big commercial sites... that 84" is a monster. There is a guy ebay with a 72" bobcat harley rake for about 3k and 200 shipping. I have bought from him before and he is a straight up guy. No hydro angle though.

My buddy does more grading than i do and he took the hydro angle off of his harley, we just dont use it. I had to grade out 50 acres for the county a couple years ago and didnt use my angle. Maybe some guys on here haVe a different opinion?

I used Landpride's version of the rake with hyd. angle for a 50,000 sq ft parking lot a few weeks ago. It was a 72" model mounted on an SVL75. I tried out the angle function a few times just to see what it'd do but ended up not using it. I could see using it to crown a driveway or something like that.

I have two 84" harleys, and one 84" bobcat all with hydraulic angle. I use the angle function all the time, and personally would never buy one without the hydraulic angle. I wish our 48" one for the mini skid had it.

There's a 72" hyd model on ebay right now for $3k. Look up Harly Rake. It's misspelled.

They threw in a new 14pin wiring harness for the rake and my SVL and shipped it for $5500. It looks pretty close to new condition.

Don't know why it was listed like that. He said it ran good and look like a new one. I guess I will see!

Lashley's is a good honest dealer. Who did you deal with there?

I bought my U-35 from them on ebay. They promised a one year warranty along with the machine. It was through CNH, yet I was buying a Kubota. I had an issue and Lashley wanted me to go through my local CNH dealer. I called them up and told them what I had and it was like I told them their grandpa was dead. Lashley didn't go to bat for me and left me hanging. Take that story for what it's worth.

Oh crap. Sorry to hear that. I hope it was not serious? I will be more cautious with them in any future dealings.
