    Default RatchetRake for Brush Clearing

    I have said before that I've used my RR for finish leveling and not for brush clearing. Well, I have a new story. I have a pile of topsoil fermenting in storage on the lower part of my property. Now thta I'm doing a garden, I need the topsoil topside. The briars, brush and water sprout trees have done great in the topsoil pile.
    I tackled them today with my new RR on my BX2660. Some of the trees were 8' to 10' tall and deep into briars, some rocks and other under brush. I used the front long teeth of the RR in forward and the stuff just started falling, not the trees. I stuck teeth under the water sprout trees and just lifted them up and drug them out. I went forward with big front trees and back drug with big teeth some and lower teeth some to pull almost everything up. Ground is a bit moist so bad traction for tractor but easier pulling the stuff up. Here's a pile of what I pulled up that I just lowered teeth and went forward after back dragging it away from the working pile and it rounded it all up and pushed it into a pile. Had to leave but in 30 minutes it changed from a wall of brush 10' to 15' high to this so I can now see what's actualy there.-img_0348-jpg

    It's the new light weight magic bucket balance level motivation indicator. Or better known as the piece of wood with the triangles that the RR was taped to for shipping. Guess it kept it level in the UPS truck.

    Wow, that thing sure looks well built! You picture looks better than what they have on their website.

    I just wish they made them a bit bigger for what I need and, of course, wish they were still available direct

    For wider buckets and higher hp ratings. I have a 78" bucket on my skid steer and it's 80 hp.
