Clearing paddock of rocks and other debris
I have a BX2670 Kubota to help me with some of the heavy jobs around the property. The sales person recommended that I buy a stick rake to help aerate the soil and clean the surface of rocky debris plus sticks and leaves.
The problem I have is that on about 3 acres of the property there was an old drive way that was filled with rocks, bricks, old bitumen pieces, tin, beer cans and other unclean fill laid across the paddock. It was never completed and is really just a pile of rubble that has spread across the paddock. All the rake is doing is either moving the rocky debris around or damaging the rake as it seems it is not the right tool, despite the sales person insisting it would be ok for the work.
The soil is sandy and in poor condition after a long drought. Using the stick rake is disturbing the top layer of the soil, which is probably not good for the soil itself.
I’m not in a position to purchase a rock bucket, which would probably be ideal, however out of current financial reach.
Does anyone have any tips, tricks or ideas for clearing the paddock of the debris, with the least damage to the soil?.
