EZ Rake dethatcher

Recommended Posts

TimJr
I just came across an old EZ Rake front mounted PTO driven dethatcher for the FDT's. It has been outside for a while, and is missing the belt shields etc.. Has anyone else ever tried to fix one up? Concerned about parts, but I also haven't looked into them yet. Anyone have one that is complete and can post pics? Seems like I have seen some old black and white sales lit for them somewhere. Thanks, Tim

I think you can still get parts. I think Blue Bird bought out EZ-Rake, they still made a similar model last time I checked, except that it had its own engine and it was sort of a universal tow behind type.

Here is a link to the new one they are producing. They now call it a "towable comber." It is the same as the old tow behind type often sold with JD's. http://www.bluebirdintl.com/node1269.asp

Talk about a time saver, that is on SWEEEEET set up you have there. If I could only find a front dethacher for my Ultima (I don't think they made one for it C) or possibly adapt one to use with my Ultima, that would be great! I wonder which large frame tractors had a front mounted dethacher made for them?

Thanks, sorry I haven't been at the computer for a few days. The one I saw must have been missing more than I thought, or it was different than the one above. The price was a little high for how much was missing, too many tines broken, and all the pulleys were very rusty and stuck. I found a source for tines, and they were around $2.50 each, and about a $1 each for the screw that holds them on. I already have a Brinly? tow behind dethatcher, and revitalizers for my Broadmoor and Sovereign, so I am passing on it. Tim

      Hello glad I got on this site. I hope to upload a couple of photos of my Simplicity Broadmoor 
      Model 707 Tractor. I have replaced all the belts on it and installed a new ignition switch.
      Have a mower deck which was in poor shape , repaced a couple of bushings and welded the
      deck where there was some holes. The tractor and mower deck came from a friend and the 
      mower deck metal was getting pretty thin. Some new metal was put in it and we also undercoated the underside of the deck. This was done by my friend Greg Toulman.
      I have not put the mower deck on the tractor yet, waiting for Greg to come home and give me a hand. Can you please tell me if there is a manual for the mower deck and where I could get one.
      I would also like to get some moon wheel discs as well.
      I will try and down load some photos of the tractor when my wife shows me how to. 
      I really love driving this tractor and also how well it is made compare today's tractors, especially the flexible rear end and the rollers.
      Tell the next time 
      Paul
