Rock PickerC.A. Ranger, Lloydminster, Sask., makes a rotary rock picker that's designed to fit any swather (Vol. 12, No. 3). It's fitted with an out-front hydraulic-powered reel that rakes both rocks and roots into a metal-fingered scoop bucket. The reel works 2 to 3 in. below the surface. When the rock scoop fills up, it lifts to dump into a rear-mounted hopper. "It's got much more maneuverability than any other rock picker because it mounts on a swather. You can turn on a dime and clean up an entire hillside in the time it takes a conventional, trailing rock picker to turn around to make a second pass. Handles rocks from 2 in. in dia. up to 40 in.," says Cliff Ranger, inventor and manufacturer. Contact: FARM SHOW Followup, CA. Ranger, 4916 41St., Box 1377, Lloydminster, Sask.
