Radium Engineering has joined forces with world-renowned Canadian manufacturers Schulte, importing their Rotary Cutters and now also their Rock Pickers and Windrowers. These rocking picking equipment are ideal for any road maintenance or rocking picking jobs on the farm.
The Rock Picker gathers up the windrowed stones into a hopper to cart them off the field. The tine bars are spring loaded – when there is a large rock, the spring stretches to absorb the shock loading. These units windrow scattered rock from 5cm to 69cm diameter, into neat rows, greatly reducing the time required to clear rock and debris from the field.
Fields full of rocks are a menace for all farmers – some might even feel there is a new crop of stones each season. This creates havoc on harrowing, harvesting and mowing machines. Due to the increasing costs of manual labour over the last couple of years, mechanical stone and rock picking has become a critical part of farming. This increases the lifespan of other implements as well as productivity, and helps to save time.
Standard Grate & Reel Good for windrowed rocks or all around stone picking (Grate & reel with 0.95cm thick square batts and 13.97cm spacing)
Minimum Till Wide Grate & Reel Good for spot picking in fields where you want to reduce trash and residue picked (Grate & reel with 0.95cm thick square batts and no till grate with 8.33cm spacing)
Heavy Duty Grate & Reel Designed to pick large heavy windrowed rocks (Grate & reel with hardened 450 steel & replaceable grate teeth with 5.39cm spacing)
The Pivoting Rock Windrower is designed to windrow small to medium rocks with ease, forming them into neat, uniform rows which are ready for pick-up by a rock picker. Roots, stumps, chips and other debris from land clearing operations can also be windrowed. As an added bonus, the Windrower has a roto-tilling action which tends to break up lumps and level the ground. Its added tooth length increases the combing action of the rake and allows for superior windrowing of rocks. Rural municipalities and counties use it to reclaim gravel from roadsides, proving the machine’s rugged construction and durability.
This implement employs a side-delivery frame arrangement which allows the operator to better control the size of windrows, regardless of rock conditions. The windrower’s patented floating drum arrangement allows the wheels to be placed closer to the windrower drum, resulting in excellent ground-following characteristics. Power is supplied to the windrower drum via a heavy duty PTO drive line, which includes a slip clutch and shear bolt arrangement for protection against excessive shock loads. The final drive chain is totally enclosed for longer service life.
