  • Landscape rake recommendation
  • Looking to purchase a new landscape rake for my 1952 8n, preferably made in the USA.

    Vendor recommendations appreciated.

    Do weights need to be added to the front for stability when using a rake?

  • Any 3-pt CAT 1 implement will work on an N or later model. As far as built in the USA goes, you can do your own homework. Go to our LINKS forum and search for a variety of popular manufacturers who supply implements. KING KUTTER, LANDPRIDE, and COUNTYLINE are a few. KK states a 'a family owned business since 1978' and many implements are assembled in the states but no doubt some parts come from overseas -you can't get away from that fact. Find a company and call and ask or email them directly. I'd be surprised if you found one that is totally Made In the USA. President Trump is changing Americas dependency on China manufacturing and bring jobs back to the USA.

  • About 20 years ago I bought an 8' landscape rake with leveling wheels on the back and it could be manually angled as needed. I used it alot, my son used it and I helped several people with their yards.
    When my gravel driveway needed grading, I used the rake.
    About 4 years ago, I sold the rake for more than I paid for it.
    My 8N had loaded rear tires and no weights on the front. I used it with my NAA Jubilee with neither front weights or loaded tires.
    These rakes are not that heavy.

  • Pretty standard item. I have a 6' rake I bought at (now defunct) Central Tractor in 1990. Seen lots of use and abuse and still going strong. Drop by your local TSC, Blaines, or equivalent and look their offerings over.
