New Rock Picker Unloads On-The-Go
We think this is the best machine on the market for high speed custom rock picking," says owner Harley Fahrenholz. "It's the only rock picker equipped with a blower for keeping corn stalks and other trash out of the rocks, and the only picker that will unload on the go. It will load up to 5,000 lbs. of windrowed rocks before it needs to be unloaded."
Also new in the Harley line is a new rock windrower. Available in a 6 and 12 ft. widths, it has a top and bottom roller. "The top roller prevents rocks from going over the top, thus eliminating the usual problem whereby about 10% of the smaller rocks get left behind when you move windrows together. Available with field cultivator teeth to loosen rocks ahead of the windrower, it's designed to be towed at 2 to 5 mph. and puts 12 to 200 ft. of rocks into a single windrow, depending on rock density and field conditions," according to Fahrenholz. "It will windrow any undesirable material from 3/8 in. to 20 in. in dia. It can be adjusted to leave behind 3/8 in. or smaller material, if desired."
Another use for the new 2-roller rock windrower is for leveling snowmobile trails before freeze up.
The new windrower sells for $4,000 for the 12 ft. model, and $2,500 for the 6 ft. model. Suggested retail cost of the new "on the go" unloading rock picker is right at $18,000. The rock windrower can be used with all makes of rock pickers.
The Harley Co. also makes other model rock pickers.
