Towable Hand Cart Moves Big Rocks
"Our new ATV towable hand cart lets you load and haul large rocks out of the field without lifting. You can tow it by hand or pull it behind an ATV," says Roger Gutschmidt, Gackle, N. Dak.
  The "Rock-It" cart comes with a pair of 15-in. dia., highway-rated tires and an expanded metal "basket". It has a hitch on top that hooks up to the ATV drawbar, and a pair of adjustable prongs to load rocks.
  To load a large rock, the cart has to be unhitched from the ATV. You then place the prongs under the rock and just tip the cart backward. With a large rock in the basket, the cart is perfectly balanced for ease of maneuverability and re-attachment to your ATV.
  "It's really versatile. It's not designed to replace a rock picker, but it comes in handy for removing the occasional large rock," says Gutschmidt. "It works great after you're done seeding and there are a few loose rocks in the field that you want to remove, but you don't want to use a rock picker because it would leave tracks."
  By pulling a pair of pins, the tines can be set at two different positions at a 45 degree angle for digging out rocks; or at a 90 degree angle for use as a conventional hand cart.
  Sells for less than $350.
