Rock picker attaches to loader bucketYou can haul rocks as you pick ĉem with this handy "Pick-A-Rock" attachment invented by Jim Hoberg, Sacred Heart, Minn.
Designed to fit all tractor, skid steer or pay loader buckets, it'll handle rocks as big as the loader it's attached to can handle, says Hoberg. Rocks are picked up and cradled on the teeth. To move them into the bucket, you simply raise it up and tilt it back. Grates behind the teeth allow dirt and debris to fall to the ground.
The teeth, made of solid high stress steel, are 30˘-in. long and 1?-in.in dia. Metal strips welded on the top side of each tooth point prevent rocks from rolling off.
To hook up, just drive into the attachment and drop 3 pins into holes drilled into the bottom lip of the bucket.
Hoberg is looking for a manufacturer interested in putting his Pick-A-Rock invention into commercial production.
