Default Any recs for a pull behind rake for a lawn tractor?

I'm looking for a rake for a lawn tractor that would be good for pine cones and smaller branches. Never used one before so looking for some input of even where to start my search.

York Rake makes a nice 4ft one but they are stupid money. I've been on the look out for one for quite awhile. A rusty, bent POS will start at around $300.

I assume you are talking about a lawn sweeper? If so I have had this one for years, it has lived its whole life outside uncovered and still works great. Think you can get them up to 50'' or so.

I Have a cyclone rake. It will suck up anything and spit out. Great product.

not exactly but i did see those too. I've never seen those until I started looking today. If they do work I'll check them out. The kind that I've seen are more like this.

The other nice thing is you can put a rope on the back, back it up right to the firepit and empty it with out getting off the mower.

I had one of those also.
Doesn't really pick up small stuff well.
Good for finish grading and gravel.

The sweeper will pick up Everything!
Mine has a handle so you just back up, pull the handle and dump.

I'm looking more so to pick up small to medium sticks and pine cones. Will it handle that or is it more for leaves?

That's a landscape rake not designed for a yard. They are designed to smooth out dirt. Yard sweeper is what you want.
