People who have grown up on a farm are no strangers to rock picking. Thus, most of the farmers would agree that it is a great investment to get your own rock-picker to do the job for you. After all, it reduces the manual labour and saves a lot of your time. Well, one farmer, instead of buying one, decided to build one on his own.
According to him, his rock-picker is easy to manoeuvre and is capable of picking up any rock – from 3.4 inches to 500 pounds. This machine features a 500 HP diesel engine that gives it plenty of power to get the job done. The 26-inch combine wheels provide traction and the 2 car wheels at the front do the steering. One of the most important parts is the axle, which comes from a 2-tonne truck.
The Rock-Picker, as already mentioned, works in a simple matter. Rocks are lifted from the ground with a picking ramp, then dumped into a steel tank that’s a bit more bigger that a regular bath tab. See it in action in the video below!
