Stone Picker For Front End Loaders
New loader-mounted stone picker picks up loose top stones and is equipped with detachable 8 by 4-in. wheels that control digging depth.
You simply remove your loader bucket and pin the stone picker to the tractor's loader arms and hydraulic cylinders.
"I call it the poor man's rock picker because it costs only a fraction of what pull-type rock pickers cost, yet it can pick up large rocks and also be used for other jobs," says Garry Varga, owner. "Most pull-type rock pickers can't pick up rocks bigger than 1 1/2 or 2 ft. in diameter. Our rock picker is equipped with heat treated carbon steel teeth that'll handle any rock your loader can lift. You can move the loader up or down to shake dirt off the rocks whereas pull-type rock pickers tend to pick up topsoil. It works better than a front-end loader bucket be-cause you don't wreck the bucket. It also works great as a manure fork for cleaning corrals, feedlots, and manure piles along fence lines. The wheels can be set to adjust depth of tines depending on rock size. They're really handy for tractors that have poor up-front visibility."
Fits all front-end loaders and is available in 6, 7, and 8-ft. models with 21/2, 3, and 3 1/2-in. tooth spacings. Sells for $520 to $696 (Canadian) depending on width and tine spacing. The optional wheels sell for $185 apiece.
