Simple Device Makes "Raking" Easy
Duane Thompson, Roseville, Ill., recently sent FARM SHOW photos of the labor-saving "leaf rake" that he used last fall on front of his riding mower.
  It consists of a 2 by 7-ft. piece of plywood with a metal bracket on back. The bracket attaches to mower in place of his snow blade. The board is raised and lowered by a hand-operated lever that's attached to a spring.
  "It lets me push all my leaves into a pile while sitting down - the only thing I do on foot is to use a blower to move the leaves out away from the house and shrubs," says Thompson. "Whatever leaves I don't get with the blade are chopped up by the mower. The blade will move a pretty good load of leaves, and fast."
