    Hey guys, can I get some opinions/experiences on using power rakes vs. tillers to tear up and reset an existing lawn. What are you all doing with yards that already have established grass and are in need of an overhaul? Which piece of equipment works better? Thoughts? Ideas?

    IMO...A tiller bites after working with a harley rake type attachment. The tiller leaves so much debris to clean out with a grade rake. I can't compete with the guy that brings in a HR and with one pass and the soil is ready. My tractor and tiller eats me up in labor on the finish grade/clean.
