Improved MTDC Trail Rake for ATVs

By Tyler Kuhn and Brian Vachowski

MTDC redesigned the original 1998 trail rake and fabricated a second-generation trail rake. This tech tip describes several added features that make the rake more efficient and safer, such as a handlebar-mounted joystick and an adjustment so the tine assembly can be moved from side to side. Because the new rake is heavier and has heavy-duty tines, it can move much more material than the original trail rake and might take the place of heavier equipment for some tasks. Although this rake is not sold commercially, drawings (MTDC-1036) are available from MTDC.
