    Default 44 hp tractor pull this?

    Land Pride SF25 Series*Scarifier

    5 or 6 acres Clay land with sand loam top some/most areas.
    Planted pines clearcut and stumps removed and buried. Still have some roots and debris left. Possibly some stumps in various places but VERY few.

    Need to be able to till land with rotary tiller eventually. Have gotten lots of info on different ways to go about prepping the land and various implements I could use.

    Arenavator type implements come to mind and I'd like some recommendations.

    That being said, I need to "feel" for the stumps and roots before I do any type of rototilling.

    Have a disc that could be used also.

    Hoping something like the attached could be used because I'm thinking it would be pretty inexpensive.

    All other suggestions appreciated.

    Is that engine or PTO horsepower?


    A 44 engine hp tractor should be able to pull that. You could remove some of the tines if the going gets tough or rip shallow and then repeat progressively deeper. A 44 PTO HP tractor should be around 50 engine HP and you should have even less trouble if that's what you have.

    45.3 gross hp.
    43 net hp.

    Being able to use it as a scarifier would be nice.

    Primarily need it to find stumps and roots in a clearcut pine area that 99%+ of the stumps have been removed prior to running a rototiller.

    I like how a rake or rear blade can be added to the back of the scarifier.

    I've got the 77" Landpride scarifier and my JD 110 with 43hp gross Hp does just fine rippen' up all the leftover roots and small stumps in the areas that I've cleared.

    Good attachment for rippin' out sod-bound pastures, too. Makes rototilling a whole bunch easier for you (alot less of the tiller bouncin' and buckin' and jerkin' the tractor around)!

    Only complaint I have is - when the roots, etc. are really thick - you'll have to back up with the tines in the ground to clear them off the tines - or when their really heavy; you'll have to get off the tractor and pull 'em out.

    I don't think you'll have any difficulties pulling that with your 44 hp tractor. My 41 hp tractor pulls a 6' box blade with scarifiers down (looks like your unit but with the box and blades added!) quite easily.

    Sure seems to me that a heavy box blade with scarifiers would be a more versatile tool for the projects you have described in your other posts. The Landpride unit would cut deeper but if your clay is like mine you will just be spinning your wheels with 6 scarifiers set deep. Hope your planning on having the tires ballasted ,loaded, on that new tractor. The L4400 isn't that heavy in the big picture of things and for deep ground engaging weight is your friend.

    With your soil make sure you have R1's and some ballast on the tractor. Preferably the rears loaded.

    Now that's ALL good new.
    Going to get it.

    In agreement about the boxblade w/ scarifier. Only prob is I already have a boxblade, but scarifier teeth are not included.

    I suppose there may be an aftermarket something or the other that I could put on my boxblade, but for whatever reason I don't think I want to go that route.

    Thinking, I'd have more flexibility for my purposes because I could get deeper with this tool (hopefully in my soil), which may end up being important.

    What is the root rake good for? Raking roots? Har har. Seriously, it just seems to me that using a root rake is just going to gather a a lot of roots and topsoil together with the tines spaced that closely together, which will be hard to separate later? Anyone with experience with this?

    I have pictured in my mind that ripper with a beam dragging behind it for leveling out the land.

    Any other suggestions/ideas?

    And yes, R1's with the tires loaded.
    Speaking of loaded, do I want to think about getting the front tires loaded also?
