After I cut up the big stuff, I have thousands of small sticks to remove. Will a landscape rake on the back of my 530 work like a dump rake??? It would be a lot faster than by hand. Has anyone used one on tree limbs??

We tried the landscape rake following the Jan 07 ice storm here. It worked well on the real small limbs that were under 2 feet or so in length. Set the top link so the teeth are vertical where they touch the ground. Anything bigger hung up between the teeth. We took an old dump rake and made a bracket to attach it to the loader bucket. It worked GREAT for the 2 foot to 12 foot limbs. For the bigger stuff we pushed it with the loader bucket only. It"s been over a year now and we still have lots of fence rows yet to clean up. Good luck. Bob

I had a tornado cross my yard 5 years ago and left 1/2 of my grove on my lawn. I tried it with little success. I have one of those golf course rakes that looks like a minature hesston stacker. That worked much better, but by the time that I was done most of the rubber fingers on the pickup drum were broke off. My lawn is about 12 acres so rakeng by hand was not an option. Anyone have an idea where I can find the rubber teeth? DK

Today's Featured Article - On the Road with Dave Gohl: Tractors and Farming - by Dave Gohl. I never thought I'd live to see the day, when I could call myself a farmer. What allows me to say this? Well, when our family moved to our 20 acre site near New Prague, Minnesota, I had one thought in mind. You guessed it, farm it somehow. A little history is in order. In my younger days, mom, dad and my brother made frequent visits to dad's youngest brother Pete, who took over the home farm from grandpa MIke. It was the typical set-up, milk cows, pigs & chickens. In the winter, we'd play ... [Read Article]
