He He... Mine be the Budget Cheap and Dirty Rake!
Yea pretty cool utilizing something I would never use that I have been tripping over for a while.
The cool thing is you can buy these things at HF so member who don't have access to welders or steel stock can pretty much bolt one together if they want a budget model.
Why walk when you can ride?
Thanks again for the idea.
"HAVE ALL YOUR DELIVERIES MADE BY UNION DRIVERS"
I made a post regarding the Cheap And Dirty Lawn Rakes performance on wet leaves a few days ago. As I stated, the wet leaves did not rake as well as the dry leaves that I raked the first time out. In an attempt to improve the performance on wet leaves I added some weight to the rake to see if it made an improvement or not.
I added a pair of 12" wheel weights weighing around 35 pounds each.
Using a transfer punch I transferred the location of the weight mounting holes on to the rake beam. I then drilled clearance holes in the beam and them welded (2) 1/2"- 13 hex nuts so I could bolt the weights to the beam.
I could then bolt the weights to the beam and give it a try. The additional weight seemed to help pick up those wet leaves, however it still won't do as good of job as a hand rake. It does move the heavy build up of leaves out into my field making it easier to hand rake of blow the remainder of leaves if I get the ambition to do that (which is not likely).
