    Anybody have any input as what I am up againist when I start to put our new cylcone rake together ? Got all 8 boxes later this afternoon and man what a lot of stuff to piece together but man is it made sturdy had no idea the thing was that well built looks like the hardest thing is going to be installing the mower deck discharge chute on as we have to mount the mounting hardware and then cut the open out of the cylcone chute adapator bracket .Twj

    It is a well built unit. Just follow the instructions and you'll have little or no problems. The whole unit is easy to assemble. But you are right, There are a lot of boxes. I cut mine up and gave them to the school for their paper recycling project. They struck it ruch....

    Putting it together was not that bad, good instructions. Now putting that d*mn thing back in those boxes when I sent it back was another story!

    I think you'll find it goes together rather easily. The assembly instructions that came with the unit are excellent. But if you do have a problem, Woodland Power Products is only a phone call or email away, and they seem to bend over backwards to be helpful. Cutting the hole in the grass-catcher boot is perhaps the most challenging operation, but I suspect that anyone over the age of 12 who has used an electric jig saw should have no problem with that.

    And DandG, good luck to you if you really are going to attempt to build your own. But I honestly believe you'll end up spending as much or more than if you just ordered one from Woodland. And also, I doubt if anything home built would be as well engineered. I think the Cyclone Rake is an exceptionally rare bargain, and it's nice to have someplace to go for parts sometime down the road, if that should ever be the case.
