    Dang, now that's nice! 3 rows of tines, that ought to do it in one pass! I was afraid I was gonna see another pull type rake with a couple 2" caster wheels on a broom handle again... lol!

    I assume you have a catcher for that JD you have it mounted on, i hope... I'm not a fan of their catchers in the first place, but reguardless of the brand, it will fill up FAST!

    Did you make that? Or did you buy it from Jd and just mount it?

    Thanks, Yeh, I have a catcher for that one. I'm not a big fan of the JD catchers either. I made it so I could put another row of times in there but probably overkill. I used it on my fathers 2 acres the other day before I painted and it worked really well. Hopefully things will green up here in the next week or so and I'll get to really try it out.:)
