    Hi yall, Im new here! :)

    I have a question about my power rake, Whats the average or minimal depth between concrete and the spinning blade settings do you recommend?

    I first thought maybe half n inch?? I was told 1 inch to 1.5 inch??

    Thanks!

    The best way to adjust the height is to do it over grass. Do one pass and see it it's taking too much off. It'll take a few times to catch the trick, but what you want to do is take off some tatch without beating the lawn to death or worse, causing damage. Each machine is different. I have 8 power rakes, and everyone is unique.

    :)
