    The ZT 2800 trans-axles on your unit have shown to be very dependable. When people ask about tow weight my first question is up hill or down hill? The hitch in the back is fine for pulling small lawn rollers, small carts to carry wood up to the house etc. Pulling a 60" lawn roller up a 20 degree grade is not recommended. Be mindful of what you pull because these drive units will pull more weight than they should.

    Rake? do you mean a dethatcher? or a spike rake we use on ball fields to turn the infield? A safe rule would be if you and a 12 year old can pick it up, chances are you're safe to pull it.
    I've loaded carts with firewood and have no issues. Watch for heat, if you feel your drive getting warm, stop!!
