Rock And Tree Digger Makes Big Jobs Easy
Brent Rausch made a heavy duty rock and tree digger for the front of his 928 Cat Payloader and now he has no problems removing trees of any size, or digging out rocks up to 6 ft. in diameter or even bigger.
  The Hoven, South Dakota farmer does a lot of custom loader work with his rig, and says it's a lot faster than before because he doesn't have to dig a big hole to move a tree or rock.
  "There are 3-pt. hitch attachments available, but in my opinion they don't work as well. I don't know of anything on the market that you can get for a payloader," Rausch says. "This attachment has two 6-ft. long teeth that are spaced 20 in. apart. They're made from the loader arms off of a 966 Cat Payloader. They're 2 1/4 by 12 in. and 6 ft. tall, and they penetrate the ground 2 ft. The whole tooth assembly weighs over 2,000 lbs."
  Rausch had a local welding shop cut the loading arms to make the teeth. They hard surfaced the bottom 2 ft. of the teeth. He also made a quick-tach bracket to go on the payloader.
  "It works great," he says.
