Rock Claw For Big Rocks
A trailing two-wheeled, heavyduty machine with powerful, hydraulic-driven claws, the Rock Hawker digs deep to pull rocks as big as 50 gal. drums - 3 to 4 ft. in dia. - out of the ground. With the rock clutched in the machine's claws, the operator drives the rock out of the field and dumps it.
"The giant claws are powered by a 31/a in. cylinder. They'll dig-34 to 36 in. into the soil to pick up rocks ranging from 18 to 48 in. in diameter," explains Larry A. Cibula, Minion president.
The Rock Hawker requires a 60 to 120 hp. tractor with dual hydraulics to operate. It's 9-ft. wide by 13 ft. long. Sells for around $4,500.
