Harley Rake or Rotodarian? Mini Skid

Can only afford to get one or the other for SK650. Which is overall the better piece for cleaning, smoothing, prepping for sod and seed?

It's hard to compare those two machine's equally, i think of the harley as more of a finishing tool and the rotadairon as a more complete digger/prepper. I hope that make's sense to you. If i had to choose i would get the rotadairon but i would seriously consider one of these first.

Like was said, the Harley is more for just finish raking or windrowing rock where the RotoD can pulverize and do finish rake work.

To me it's more useful to have the pulverizing action that the RotoD does. Once I got use to it, I can finish rake pretty good with it. We also use ours on an ASL(RC 30). I'm finding sense no one has one here, it is a nice niche attachment and I am not having to haul material away.
