Power Rake Frequently Asked Questions
WHAT WIDTH SHOULD I PURCHASE?
At minimum, the Raking Width at Full Angle should be wider than your loader’s tracks. Please refer to the spec table to see which models work for your skid steer. Also note that the wider the unit the easier it will be to maintain grade.
CAN I GET THE POWER RAKE IN HIGH FLOW?
Virnig does not offer the Power Rake in high flow. All Power Rake motors are rated for 15-25 gpm with zero overflow tolerance. Operating at higher than 25 gpm will void the warranty.
CAN I RUN IT IN REVERSE?
Yes, the Power Rake is designed to operate in both directions. The operator should rotate the Power Rake drum in the opposite direction of the the skid steer.
WHAT ARE THE WHEELS MADE OF?
Solid urethane filled tires to prevent downtime due to flats.
CAN I GET REPLACEMENT TEETH?
Yes, replacement teeth are available for purchase. Note the original tooth and holder need to be cut off and the new tooth welded directly to the drum. This may take an extended amount of time. Also, teeth are a wear part and broken teeth are not considered a warranty item.
Alternatively, Virnig offers entire replacement drums, which may be a better option if many teeth need to be replaced.
WHAT SOIL TYPES DOES THE POWER RAKE WORK BEST ON?
The Power Rake is designed to be used on many soil types, but may have trouble in sticky/wet ground or weedy areas that are untended (the weeds will wrap around the drum). When working sod or compacted soil, multiple passes may be necessary to achieve desired effect.

WHY DOES VIRNIG USE NITROSTEEL® CYLINDER RODS?
Virnig uses NitroSteel® rods because they are a superior performing alternative to chrome plating. The finish offers improved corrosion resistance and better grease retention.
Chrome plated cylinder rods can flake or pit and destroy the seals or other internal components; resulting in downtime and expensive repairs.
A NitroSteel® rod will perform better and increase the service life of a cylinder, making it the cost-effective choice.
WHAT IS THE SETUP TIME FOR A VIRNIG SKID STEER ATTACHMENT?
Most Virnig attachments are ready to work right off the pallet.
To minimize set up time, Virnig Manufacturing requires the machine brand and model to be listed on each order for attachments with hydraulic components to ensure proper hose length, routing, and coupler sizing. In addition, all hydraulic Virnig Attachments are tested for leaks and proper operation before leaving the factory. There may be specific scenarios in which additional setup time will be required.
