- Nice product at the price point Review by Raymond
Quality Price Value
The King Kutter 6' Landscape Rake is overall a nice buy. We sorely needed something to clear our daughter's acreage. The previous tenants had trashed the area badly. Trees and overgrown weeds had taken over. The rake pulled and dragged most items into a nice pile. The tines work fine and spring back nicely for more action. If anything, we may have to remove every other tine as it pulls too much. Some areas it also removes the sod which we wish to keep growing. For our purposes it best to keep the rake on sandy dirt surfaces.
I was surprised the painted surface appeared "soft". The paint came off very easily which concerns me for outside storage and rusting of the rake. Following usage we will probably re-paint the rake with a good Rustoleum type paint. The pivot point pin appears to be a weak cast metal. This lends itself to possible breakage. Later replace this with a good case hardened bolt. Or the thought occurred that perhaps this is designed to break to avoid damage to the pivoting housing? The three point pin did not come with the unit. Buy a 3/4x6 pin before you take this home. The other offset two pivots are included and have to be reversed to mount the rake. At the price I would definitely recommend this be included in your inventory of tractor equipment. It saves us hours of manually raking. Great tool!
