Took a very long time to get manufactured, but a very short time to be delivered. I was surprised by how small this 7’ rake was. Probably should have gotten the 8’. And I also got the 3 hydraulics, even though I don’t yet have a 3rd remote. So, to keep the tail wheel from dragging, I decided to remove it. Unpinned it and it wouldn’t drop. Even chained the unpinned tail wheel arm to my van trailer hitch and tried driving the tractor away. Whoa! Started dragging my van! Finally went to my neighbors and got a crow bar and big slug hammer. Yes, it dropped. Now practicing raking rock. Word of caution - have the rake on an angle or else when those tines spring you will think someone is shooting at you. Did not see any “owner’s manual” in packing. For a beginner, that would have been useful. Very well made product.
