Tractor
1967 Ford 5000 w/FEL(sold), 1950 Farmall Super A for the wife to drive around (needs fixed) 2024 Kubota B2601 FEL & BH
SO I have a lot of loose rocks and dirt, was thinking of building something like this to "screen" the rocks (2 or 3") just like cat turds...thoughts?

OR build a screening rack or what ever they are called (out of metal)

Yes, similar not as heavy duty, tractor can only pickup a 1000lbs at pivot

There many that make a 48" for sub compact tractors.

If you already have a brush grapple, a possible option is to build a mesh insert for the bottom of it to use to screen rock from ground that is already loose. I wouldn't recommend trying to dig hard ground with the FEL on a tractor.

MTL sells a decent 48" brush grapple for $1129 including shipping. Attachments — MTL Attachments

My five tine pitch fork is multi purpose. Go around with this fork - rocks go in the wheelbarrow.

Exact same operation in my neighbors pastures. Only there it's meadow muffins - not rocks.

Rocks get dumped off the cliff - into my lake. Meadow muffins go around my fruit trees.

My tractor is too big and not nimble enough for this type operation.
