One of a Kind Rock Rake

Rock Rake

Rock Rake

This spring I realized I had a problem, a rock problem, and I began the harvest before I had planted any seeds. I would pile the rocks up, and then wheel them off to the edges of the garden in a wheel barrel. Davey knew this method was simply too labor intensive, so he began planning, and collecting materials for a custom made rock rake. The main support is made from an old plow, and the tines and mounting bar are from several cultivators. Davey assembled the pieces, and had Shane weld them. This rake is made to attach to a small lawn mower sized CASE tractor, and with the hydraulic lift, it’s much simpler to collect the rocks. I takes several passes to work the soil well, but I’d rather ride around for a day then push a wheel barrel all summer !

Thanks Davey.
