I stumbled upon this site the other day while researching equipment on the web. I read some threads and am pleased to have found this source of knowledge and information. So hello to everyone. I am considering purchasing the Eliminator Rake by Loegering. We plan to use this as a finishing tool for our track loader and a means to scarify rock hard Carolina Clay. I would like to know if anyone has found this to be an effective and productive tool. I would also like to know if this brand is a well built, durable product worthy of $1600.00. I am particularly concerned about the durability of this product. It would be subject to finding roots, underground stumps, construction debris and again our lovely soil/concrete. Anyone not familiar with Carolina Clay has only missed out on pure frustration. This stuff gets so hard at times that a dozer blade has trouble penetrating it. Many times the only way to get into the ground is chisel plow or reverse till the ground several times or both. The rake would be used mostly on the track loader to break up the soil and as a finishing tool on smaller jobs that do not warrant bringing the tractor and Harley Rake to the job site. Thanks in advance for any input or thoughts.
