Stone Forks Catching On Fast
For hands-off rock picking at a reasonable price, it's hard to beat bucket-mounted rock forks for tractors or skid steers.
  Here's a list of manufacturers who have had forks on display at recent farm shows. Design and construction vary, but the idea is the same: skim up larger rocks by running the fork just below the soil surface. Soil and smaller stones fall through the tines. The larger rocks can be loaded onto a truck or wagon and hauled away.
  Forks are available to fit any size loader, ranging from under 4 ft. to about 9 ft. in width, depending on manufacturer.
