    I've got two small ones- one at the end of this week and the other at the beginning of next week. It sure got the landscaper whose yard I keep all my equipment at all excited though.... :cool2:

    I agree with Ron, Andrew. Every one of our T300's and 250's went anywhere from 1700 hrs. to just over 1900 hrs. on the OEM Bridgestones.

    Looks like a Harley power rake! I just did a 2.5 acre power rake/grading/seeding job. Those attachments work amazing. I hope it works great for you and you expand your services with it!Congrats!

    Well I'd definitely like another 700 hrs or so out of the tracks- it all depends on the jobs I get between now and then. The treads aren't what concern me, it's several deep cuts that I am keeping my eye on.

    Fordplower- Yup- it's a harley rake with the addition of the hydraulic front bolster. I'm redoing some field sections for a landscaper and it's powering very well through rocks, sod, and dirt. With a little more time on it, I think I'm going to have a very nice niche service for my area.

    Laugh all you want but I started one on the 3rd try one day when I was on a jobsite just by using the dirty buttons.

    Good thing to have, I think the harley rake is my favorite attachment and something I couldn't do with out. Even if just fixing damage during work. One of my guys used to run one on a tractor for another company and says he likes it on a skid better than a tractor. Just finished a 1 acre pond and all the clay we dug out, rough graded it and let it dry in the sun for 4 days power raked it and seeded it. I don't have the power angle but haven't had the need for it yet. Once again a great Iron planet find!

    Instead of power raking we used to run a dozer at full boar just fluffing the top bit of material. Since all developers seem to favor the get rid of black dirt stockpile for later it seems to make a good seed bed for large areas. Finally convinced them to stop seeding on hardpan clay:hammerhead:.
