Smooth Operator. You could spend hours and hours with an iron rake and a wheelbarrow prepping the soil around your new spec house — or you could jump into a compact loader equipped with a Landscape Rake and do the job in a fraction of the time. Available in two sizes — for skid steers and track loaders — the attachment sifts out rocks as small as 3/4 inch while tilling and leveling the soil. Prices start at $6,800.
