I've been looking for a rock rake for my GT for several years,  I finally scored one today!  I found it on FB  marketplace for $75.  It is 46 inches long, Sears 3 point, adjustable angle, and complete.  I will change it to a standard Cat 0 3 point so I can use it behind my Cub 1811.

Here are some pictures of it.

This 3 point pin and top attachment arm are bent.

You have to look at this one sideways

I like that it's 46 inches in length.

Someone added these pipes to add extra weight.

I will have to see if I can find an owners manual for it.

I found a video on Youtube that shows the same model of rake but it has a wheel that attaches with an arm after the rake.  It allows for height adjustment.  I don't think I will need the wheel because I will be able to adjust the height with 3 point on my Cub.  I still haven't found an owners manual.

You can see the extension with part of the wheel showing in this picture.

I bought a new on with 3 point last spring from a Farm & home store.   We have several Hybred willow trees in our yard and they drop a ton of branches every winter.  The rake works great to gather them up and drop them in along row down a dirt drive, then lightening strikes them.   Use it behind the White 1655.  As long as you don't have down pressure on it just let it float and works good.

Never heard of that company before.  I will have to check that one out.  

Thanks

I've seen them used for raking up branches.  Good to know that they will work good for that.

 

I figured if it doesn't work well with just the 3 point I could add an adjustable wheel on each end.  

Thanks

This may help you with how to set it up - probably not the same but similar style.
