All the metal was from the job site , The tines were under $15 a piece. I think closer to $11-12 range. so under $350

I don't see the point in angling a rake.
Things don't slide along them like they do on a blade.
I have a 5 foot tow behind rake that is very heavy but works well. it is pulled by a JD GT245 with turf tires. I rake a field that I mow that is filled with rocks, golf ball size to baseball size, that work their way up from the frost. I angle the rake and the rocks and thatch roll off the side nicely leaving a row. The dirt filters through the teeth. After several adjacent passes the row is big enough to pick up with my scoop. If I don't angle the rake, the rocks build up in the rake and eventually the rake rides over the rocks in the ground rather than lifting them out or the tires will spin.

I ended up taking a little drive last year and picked up a Woods RBC60 rake with guide wheels for $350. It's very heavily built and I used on my Massey Ferguson 1855 before I tore it down to restore it, and it worked great. Thanks for all your help guys. And by the way, thanks TomLGT195 for posting the pic of your Ford with the rake attached, I can remember how you were part of the reason I got the bug to get one, and last month, that's exactly what I did! :)
