    Hey guys, my parents have a jd 990 that I'm looking to get a box scraper or york rake for. It will be used for grading driveways, spreading dirt, etc. Would you go with a box scraper with ripper teeth, or a york rake? Thinking I could make something that takes place of the ripper teeth that will work like a rock rake for jobs like that.

    Get a box blade right away and then watch for a rake later. I've seen Gill rakes on Craigslist pretty reasonable. We have a TR3 rake for raking out lawns and like it.
