Tiller vs power rake on mini skid

So I can buy a tiller for almost 2k less than a Harley rake. For prepping and grading a lawn couldn't I just use a tiller and leveler instead of a rake?

The Harley rake removes all of the crap in neat piles and tills and grades in one step.

Yeah but is that really worth $2000?

Only you can answer that. How much work do you have for it? What's it worth to haul around 1 attachment instead of two? What's it worth to finish in an hour instead of a half day?

I own a tiller and a rockaway..the rockaway is a cost alternative to the rockhound. It works the same way, with mining teeth on a roller that loosens the earth 2 inches and throws most of the rocks into your bucket. I use the tiller to loosen 6 inches, then switch to the rockaway. The outer edge also smoothes to a finish. Its a great combo. I paid 5g for the rockaway, sure beats 10g for the rockhound. I paid about 4g for the tiller (Altec). This combo kicks ass.
