    I have an Eliminator rake for my 751 which works great from ripping out brush or scraping grass of house lots. the only problem is over the years some of the teeth/tines have bent. I am assuming that the only way to bend them back is to have some use a torch, but wouldn't that greatly effect the temper of the steel?

    Yes.. if you could find a blacksmith in your area, he will know how to reshape and temper the tines. Or just replace em.

    i wouldn't use a torch, its not needed. i just use the my binder bar and bend them back, i have to use the machine to do it. it is good metal it will bend back. if you heat it, it will be more likly to break next time you do it
