I have 2 EZ-Rakes dethatchers (power rakes) - one has  3 hp and the other has a 5 hp

I am wanting to mount it on 1 of my Deeres (212 or 214) and run it off the GT

Want I need to is what size of pulley is on the EZ-Rake?

 

I know that the 2 motors on the EZ-Rakes have a 6:1 ratio reducer

 

pictures would help a lot how I should make it work

 

thanks

I have had a few, both front mount for Simplicity/Allis, as well as the self-powered tow behind.  I much prefer the front mount/tractor PTO powered versions.  They work great and are very easy to manuever when up front.  Here are some pics of my first one, a model 100...

This is the one attachment I regret letting go of...each time.  They work fantastic.  The Sweepster does a bit better job, but can also destroy the turf in a hurry if the operator is not careful.  The rake can too, just not as bad.  There was a JD variety locall on CL for $300 a couple weeks back.  Looks like it sold, but it took a week or two.  I thought that was a great deal.  He had two hitches for use on different types of JD's.  These model 100's can be used on a variety of GT's with the correct hitch.  AC/Simplicity guys bolt on a blower hitch.

Tines are still available new from a number of vendors, for about $2 each.
