    I am going to rent a harley rake, can you guys give me some tips?

    How deep should I set it?

    How much angle on it?

    How do you manage the rocks? Then, what do you do with them?

    Do you start close to the house and work down or around or some thing like that?

    As you can see, I am very excited about this, I have also had about three cups of coffee!

    Thanks for all of your help!

    I think you are supposed to keep the chain case parallel to the ground. Just drop it and let it do its thing. You can figure it out. What I would do is out line the house, and then go in passes going in one direction with the rake angled the way you are moving to windrow the crap and then pick it up with the loader and your good.
