How would that rake work with small willow twigs & branches? Talking up to little finger size. We have several Hybred Willow trees that are beautiful trees with lost of shade but shed a bunch of little branches every winter. Always a pain to rake and pick up.

They stay put better than crushed concrete or virgin class 5. Technically, it won't support as much weight as either or a cc/asphalt mix (conbit) but I have a sandy soil that doesn't have any issues with drainage or getting spongy.

Just did my 3/8 mile lane yesterday. I have a Ford 1500 with 3 point. Used the rear blade to grade out the ruts, then mounted the landscape rake to redistribute the gravel. Love the rake, it seems to make gravel, by pulling it up out of the pack.
Chief Fan my rake does not do well with twigs, it has 1/2 flat bar tines and about 1/2 inch between the tines.
Small twigs seem to turn and get stuck between the tines?
I tried it raking raspberry and blackberry canes and dragging them to the burn pile.

Got out my e-state rake to clean up the yard. got several walnut tree in back and two large oak trees in the front yard. The Oak tree last had a lot of acorns. the squirrels sure likes all the acorns over the winter. sure like e-state rake, because it gets the stems from the leaves that were left in the yard and all the little branches from the trees and frees out the acorn caps from the yard. The larger branches I had to pick up. also gets the thatch out of the grass.

I got the little LT4000 out. Changed the oil and air filter. Went to sharpen the blades and the left one was chewed up pretty bad. Don't know why. Bought new blades for it. May have to get a new battery though. Otherwise, it's ready to mow!

I use my leaf blower to clean stones, etc... out of the yard, also to sweep my garage and buildings, sidewalks, whatever.
