    Looks good, how much do they want for it. Found a video:



    Other than the fingers, and the rippers, looks like the ASV unit I bought, at the 3rd attachment, for my RC30, and I love that attachment!. Also has another function that wasn't explained in the video. Anybody wanna guess?;)

    Don’t know but it looks like it would speed my work in yards up grading after drainfields. I found one on eBay for a little less than 2000.00 probably would be awesome coupled to a tilt tach

    I have a John Deere LP1172. Tough and works as expected.

    i was debating getting a landplane to final grade new yards and seed.
    i ended up finding this company with a clamp on rake for your bucket. works extremely well, as long as the soil is dry obviously. i prefer the rake over a harley rake.

    It IS a pretty yellow color. That being said, backdragging against the clamps, lack of visibility, and I question the durability vs a harley rake, or land plane...;)

    i have the model with chains that hold it to the bucket, and i use in on a takeuchi tl140 machine, which has some power pushing on it. its very easy to use. mostly drag in reverse with the float on. but is more aggressive moving forward. i've used it to final grade and seed a dozen yards so far and no problems.
