    I am ordering a Mini Fastrack on Monday. I purchased a Cyclone rake early in the fall and I am curious if the Cyclone is going to be able to hook up to the Mini Fastrack. The cyclone has a special attachment plate that has to mounted to the back of the machine, roughly 12 inches from the ground. I am also concerned that the Cyclone may be to heavy and present a tipping issue. Any help would be appreciated

    I am not familiar with the Cyclone, can you post or e-mail me a picture?
    Is it a full tow behind unit?
    I would also be concerned with balance with this Cyclone on the unit, not towed by the unit.

    Thanks for the responce PJ. I am also concerned with the balance of the machine. I called Cyclone today and they say it hooks up. But I don't think it is going to work. The Cyclone is very heavy. I am posting a link with the model I have. http://www.cyclonerake.com/commander.htm

    From looking at the link you posted, I would think there is a bit to much tongue weight, that would be my main concern.
