I have one of those I have yet to mount on a tractor.  Mine is the sleeve hitch version.  I contemplated converting it to use it on my Ariens 3PH.  I have a sleeve hitch adapter, but it will push the bucket out farther than I like for leverage/center of gravity reasons.  Mine has the scarifier teeth on the bottom of the back side of the blade.  I think it has the bolt-on teeth for the front of the bucket as well.

 

As far as favorite attachment...I would have to go with the Ariens GT Bagger-Vac in the fall.  It makes leaf collection so much easier.  I have a lot of leaves, so I'm a little biased to that attachment!  =)

I live way out in the country where we just let the wind blow the leaves off the yard whenever it happens.

LOADER!!!!!, I use my Kubota every day for something, the backhoe is also very handy but it isn't used all the time, but when you need it, you need it!

Finding an exact fit can be expensive and time consuming. Sometimes finding a none running tractor with a loader or a loader for some other app, and modifying the mount can save time and money. None of them are plentiful.

I wish I could do that! I have a couple big oak trees that drop chunks of leather in the shape of leaves. Man those leaves are tough. Add that to the other big trees and brush line down one side of the property, you get leaf hell. I tried mulching for a few years. My grass got smothered and started to die. I had to start bagging. The hippy in me hates bagging leaves, but I have no choice.

I do mow them to the edge in places to prevent grass dying in places but never touch a rake.

I don't do much raking either.  I rake stuff out away from trees, brush, fences, etc.  I let the tractor do the rest.
