Hi Mark, its so if you move the shanks closer together and you have sweep type shovels on that they clear each other and it lets the dirt flow around a bit. With the points like I'm using they could all be straight I'll see when spring come which way I like it best

Thanks!

That makes sense!  I'm just a city boy trying to learn!

Hi all got the points installed this morning so the cultivator is pretty much completed Raised it up and the clearance is about 10" so that should be good

Nice!

That gives me an idea.  

Have you ever made a rock rake?  That is something that I have a need for.  Any suggestion or idea's?

Thanks

HI Mark Yes many times I've thought about it but I think the cost of the tines generally it what has stopped me but maybe I'll look into to it again

The cost of the tines was also a concern of mine.  I never see one for a GT around my parts.  The Cat 1 are always so much more expensive it doesn't make sense to buy one and modify it.

I just checked the price of tines from Agri Supply that's where I got the cultivator parts  I have bought many things from them the prices are good the service has been excellent  good folks to do business with but sometimes the shipping is to much and I don't blame them its expensive these days from any supplier

Anyway the landscape tines would be about $170.00 with shipping, I would build it 60" for the PK using 30 tines which could be cost effective will have to slep on it for a day or so

This rake looks good wouldn't mind having one like this but the shipping is $142.00

Thanks MNGB for the information!

Some how I missed the rakes that HD and Lowes carries!  

Buying the shanks is still cheaper then buy a complete unit.  Another $30 to $40 for metal to make a 3 point plus some time and I'd had a rake!

Hi Mark yes you got me really thinking about a rake as a project now tomorrow I'll look and see if I have any 3" X 3" angle 50" long if I can round some up I just might order the tines

Just thought id throw it out here, to those of you talking about rock rakes... i have 2 60" cat0 or cat1 york brand york rakes id sell. If any interest you can message me & we can talk price & provide pics. Id be willing to ship if needed, but setting up the arraingments & payment would be on you. Ill assist however i can tho. You cant get a better/stronger made rake in this size by any manufacturer IMO. Theyre quite costly tho. Look them up on the web. Heres a link...
