    Hey guys
    Whats the best tractor attachment to buy for doing new lawn installs? We just received 3 contracts to seed lawns and want to upgrade with new equipment before we start. any feed back would help.

    Thanks

    a bucket is nice for collecting rocks.

    I'd say a harley rake or york rake.

    Do the harly rakes leave a good seed bed? I see a lot of pulverizers on the market now but they don't seem very effective in rocky soils. I think we will rent a few different implements to try them out

    thanks
