    I would suspect it is still basically a 3 point hitch rake, with a mounting adapter to fit the skid. My guess is you pull a pin, swing the entire thing around, and replace the pin, similar to a 3pth blade. Would only take a minute or so, but would require getting out to do it. (If my thinking is correct, I can't see any large pics to get a good look at the setup.)

    Looks like a lot of money for so little! I have a harley rake on my bobcat and I love it best investment I made as far as attachments go, bought it used from the bobcat rental fleet 2 years ago for about $3500 less than a new one and havent had any trouble yet! It just seems to be alot more versitile attachment, to me anyway! But thats just my opinion!

    My bobcat bucket has some brakets welded on the inside bottom and one on the top so I can use any 3 point attchment Ie. york rake, scraper blade, box blade etc. Works pritty good.

    Have you looked @ the front runner rakes? I think they make them for ffc. I found one used and works pretty well. If you have a pick up truck with a fisher minute mount it can go on that too. Beleive it or not it works awesome in the snow. Check ebay. There is a couple on there right now.
