will not be used for a long period, it is good practice to
clean off any dirt that may have accumulated.
Check the angle shift pin for excessive wear and
replace if necessary.
Repaint parts where paint is worn or scratched to
prevent rust.
Check all bolts and nuts to be sure they are tight except
nylock nut pivot bolts – these should be just snug.
S A F E T Y I N F O R M ATION
(continued)
When maneuvering close to buildings or passing through narrow areas, be sure to allow sufficient clearance
for the implement and tractor.
Do not operate close to ditches or creeks. Slow down when operating over rough ground.
Inspect the implement for loose, damaged or worn parts
and adjust or replace if needed.
Always be sure the implement is in the fully raised position when in transport.
Repaint parts where paint is worn or scratched to
prevent rust.
Pull from drawbar only. Failure to hitch properly could cause tractor to flip over, resulting in serious injury or
death.
Store in a clean, dry place away from where children
play.
Periodically oil the following:
Turnbuckle threads
Pivot points
Reduce speed on slopes and sharp turns to minimize tipping or loss of control. Be careful when changing
directions on slopes. Do not start or stop suddenly on slopes. Avoid operation on steep slopes.
Never exceed the limits of a piece of machinery. If its ability to do a job, or to do so safely, is in question DON’T TRY IT.

Check the exploded view of the landscape rake or box
scraper in this manual to get an idea of the relationship
between the parts.
The PLR Series landscape rakes and PBX-42 box
scraper are designed for small lawn/garden tractors and
ATV units equipped with a rear pull type hitch.
The two main subassemblies of the landscape rake are
heavy and awkward to handle. It is recommended that
you have one or two helpers to complete the assembly.
For the different width landscape rake units, we recommend the following minimum size lawn/garden tractor:
Rake
PLR-48
PLR-60
PLR-72
It is suggested that you hook the clevis hitch of the main
frame to your tractor before assembling. If this in not
possible, block the hitch off the ground 5-6 inches.
Min. Tractor H.P.
10-12 H.P.
12-15 H.P.
15-18 H.P.
Slide the landscape rake tinebar assembly under the
main frame. Raise the front of the tinebar and block
below the angle tinebar. Insert the 1” x 4” hex head bolt
into the bottom of the center angle adjustment plate on
the tinebar and then through the 1” diameter hole in the
main frame. (Threaded end up). Place a 1” flat washer on
the bolt and then install the 1” nylock hex nut. Tighten this
nut until it is just lightly snug – you want to be able to
angle the tinebar but have a minimum amount of
looseness.
For the PBX-42 box scrapers, we recommend a 12-15
hp tractor.
ATV units need to have a low gear and be of sufficient
size (see the chart above for tractors and use a conversion of 12 cc engine size equals 1 hp).
Small tractors may need wheel weights to have enough
traction.
To assemble the box scraper weldment, slide the box
scraper under the main frame and install the 1” hex head
bolt as described above for the landscape rake tinebar.
Then install the two 1/2” hex head bolts into the rear of the
main frame circle plate and the mounting bracket on the
box scraper. Tighten all bolts on the box scraper
attachment.
CAUTION!
Be sure tractor or ATV is in good condition. Read all
the safety precautions and make sure all operators
are familiar with the safety rules of operation.
On the landscape rake, set the desired angle of the
tinebar assembly and install the angle shift pin.
The operating height of the landscape rake and the box
scraper is set by the turnbuckle adjustment. If the unit is
on a flat level surface (concrete slab) you can set the
depth of operation by raising the wheels off the surface.
It is recommended that changes in operating depth be
kept small. After operating the attachment a few times,
you will get to know how much change your power unit
can handle.
PA C K I N G
The landscape rake is usually shipped as two bundles:
1. Main Frame
2. Rake Tine Bar Assembly (teeth installed).
As you operate the landscape rake or box scraper, you
need to pull on the rope and pull the handle forward to
dump the material or to make a sharp turn. Releasing the
rope allows the implement to return to its depth setting as
controlled by the turnbuckle.
• Know your controls and how to stop tractor and engine
quickly in an emergency. READ THIS MANUAL AND
THE ONE PROVIDED WITH YOUR TRACTOR OR
ATV.
• To avoid accident or injury, do not allow anyone to
operate this equipment without proper instructions.
Any person who operates this equipment must be
instructed in and be capable of the safe operation of
the tractor, implement and all controls.
GRADING
Adjust the turnbuckle for the amount of cut you want to
take. Set the rake angle adjustment as desired – straight
for grading or angles for a windrowing effect.
It is recommended to operate the rake at a slow speed
(max. 3 mph) to give ample time for fine material to flow
through the tines.
When angle grading with the rake, the tinebar should be
angled only enough to allow material to slide across
easily.
• Do not allow children to operate this machine.
• Always wear relatively tight and belted clothing to
avoid entanglement in moving parts. Wear sturdy,
rough-soled work shoes and protective equipment for
eyes, hands, and hearing. Never operate tractor in
bare feet, sandals, or sneakers.
• Operate only in daylight or good artificial light.
LEVELING
• Ensure implement is properly mounted, adjusted and
in good operating condition.
The rake tinebar should be straight across (ie: 90˚ to the
line of travel). The gauge wheels will make the leveling
operation much easier. It will usually take several passes
over the same area to obtain the desired result.
• Ensure that all safety shielding and safety signs are
properly installed and in good condition.
RAKING
Light vegetative trash, dirt clods, or rocks may be raked
into piles or into windows for easier pick up. DO NOT
overload rake tines – remove large rocks, roots or limbs
before using the implement.
If you have a gravel or loose stone driveway, setting the
rake at an angle and making several passes in the grass
along each side of the drive will rake the stones out of the
grass and back into the driveway.
W ARNING!
▲ Be sure tractor engine is off and key is removed
before making any adjustments.
▲ Do not get under machine to make measurements
or adjustments without securely blocking implement first.
CAUTION!
O P E R AT I O N
The box scraper is shipped as welded assembly.
Tie one end of the pull rope to the upper end of the lift
handle. The other end of the rope should be lightly tied to
your tractor or ATV.
A S S E M B LY
For instruction reference, the terms front or rear are
based on the operator facing forward on the tractor, thus
front is toward the front of the tractor and the rear is to
the rear of the tractor.
SAFETY . . .
YOU CAN LIVE WITH IT!
It is suggested that all the instructions be read before
beginning assembly.
4
(continued)
Watch for and avoid catching the rake on stumps,
large rocks, or other immovable objects.
While standing by the landscape rake or box scraper,
pull forward on the handle and remove the transport lock
pin, then slowly release your pressure on the handle and
let the handle swing to the rear. Make sure your feet are
clear as the tinebar or box scraper lowers to the ground.
INCORPORATING SEED: Seed is best incorporated by making two passes in diagonal directions.
Consult your seed supplier or reference book for the
recommended seed depth. Set the rake straight and
operate the rake at two times the recommended seed
depth. Grass seed, for example, should be covered
approximately 1/4”. Operate the rake at 1/2” penetration
and make two passes in diagonal directions.
There is an extra set of holes at the top of the lever
quadrant to store the transport lock pin while the implement is in use.
To place the implement into the transport position, just
reverse the above procedure.

watch out for bumps. The tractor may need front counter-weights to counter-balance the weight of the
implement. An unstable tractor could steer badly and possibly tip over, causing injury or death.
Never use alcoholic beverages or drugs which can hinder alertness or coordination while operating equipment.
Consult your doctor about operating tractor and implement while taking prescription medications.
Do not allow others to ride on the tractor with an operator. Riders are subject to injury such as being struck by
foreign objects or being thrown off. Riders obstruct the operator’s view resulting in unsafe operation. Never
allow anyone to ride on the implement!
Before you operate any implement, check over all pins, bolts and connections to be sure all are securely in
place. Replace any damaged or worn parts immediately.
Do not allow anyone who is not familiar with the safety rules and operation instructions to use this equipment.
Never allow children to operate or be around equipment.
Do not exceed capacity of the tractor or ATV.
