BARBER / TURF RAKE - Stone Picking Machine

The TURF RAKE stone picking machine removes stones from scarified soil and expedites a variety of turf restoration processes. Adapted from the same tine-raking technology as the proven SURF RAKE, the TURF RAKE is a fast and effective stone picking solution.


WHAT DOES THE STONE PICKER DO?

  • Removes stone, rock, sod, roots, sticks and similar debris from soil

  • Grades rough or scarified soil

  • Aerates the soil- leaving a gently harrowed area

  • Tines penetrate the soil digging down to remove buried stones ensuring thick top layer of stone free soil

WHY?

  • Cut Hand Labor Costs: The TURF RAKE stone picker can quickly do the work that previously took many men and many hours of hand raking.

  • Simplify mechanical methods: The TURF RAKE stone picker in one pass removes stone, elevates the debris to a hopper at the rear, levels uneven areas and leaves the surface ready for planting all in one pass.

  • Cut Material Costs by grading to fine tolerances

  • Cut warranty costs

WHERE IS IT USED?

  • Horse arenes, paddocks, and race tracks

  • Ball fields & picnic areas

  • Site work- for schools, hospitals, industrial buildings

  • Golf Courses- fairways, greens, driving ranges and new or rehabilitation construction

  • Roads, Highways and Parkways- median strips, berms, shoulders, clover leafs, etc.

WHO USES THE TURF RAKE STONE PICKER?

  • Site Contractors

  • Landscape Contractors

TURF RAKE MODELS & OPTIONS

 

The TURF RAKE is a stone rake that levels the target area and removes stone in one pass. A high volume hopper holds the debris, which is elevated from the soil. This stone rake cleans and levels in one process leaving the area ready for seeding, eliminating the need for multiple pieces of equipment.


MODEL 600HD

At 3,800 pounds, the 600HD stone rake is H. Barber & Sons' largest rock and stone rake. It has been successfully used in a variety of turf and soil applications. Cleaning a seven (7) foot wide path the 600HD can clean up to three (3) acres per hour. The two (2) cubic yard hopper can lift up to 3,800 pounds of material and dump its contents hydraulically from a clearance height of nine (9) feet. The TURF RAKE stone rake removes debris and leaves the area ready for immediate seeding. No additional cleanup is necessary.


MODEL 400HD

At 2,700 pounds, the 400HD stone rake is H. Barber & Sons' moderate-size stone and rock rake. It is equipped with a two (2) cubic yard hopper that will lift 2,400 pounds of debris to a dumping height of nine (9) feet. This mid-size model uses the same heavy-duty conveyor and dump components as the 600HD. The 400HD can clean up to two (2) acres per hour.


MODEL 400

Similar to the model 400HD, the model 400 is Barber's smallest stone rake. It weighs 1,900 pounds and can lift up to 2,000 pounds in its one (1) cubic yard hopper. Its hydraulic discharge places material neatly on the ground. Within one (1) hour, the model 400 can effectively clean up to two (2) acres.

 

STONE PICKING AND SOIL GROOMING APPLICATIONS

 

STRAFING RANGES AND SPENT MUNITIONS REMOVAL

The TURF RAKE can be used on strafing ranges to remove spent munitions. Currently in use in multiple strafing ranges around the U.S., the TURF RAKE digs up to 6 inches deep into the sand/soil to remove the shells and studs that have become lodged in the ground. By removing the spent munitions, the TURF RAKE prevents ricochetting and possible harm to incoming aircraft. It will simultaneously remove rock, stone, and other debris that could prove dangerous.

The video below depicts how the TURF RAKE cleared a strafing range in a fraction of the time of manual cleaning. Additionally, the operator was able to remain safe in the cab of the tractor.


REMOVING STONES & ENCROACHING GRASS FROM INFIELDS WITH THE TURF RAKE

The TURF RAKE excels at removing stones and encroaching grass from baseball infields. It proves especially helpful when municipalities are responsible for tens or twenties of fields in their area. The TURF RAKE can clean a field in minutes, making it safe and fresh for players to enjoy.


HORSE ARENA CREATION & MAINTENANCE

The Barber TURF RAKE is ideally suited for creating a well-prepared footing in horse arenas. It levels the soil and removes any stones and rocks brought up through the footing due to frost heaves. Using hundreds of raking tines, it removes stones and rocks from 1/2 inch to 4 inches in diameter. The TURF RAKE can be easily adjusted to rake and clean from 1 inch to 4 inches deep into the soil. The optional finisher assembly at the rear of the machine glides over the cleaned area, leaving a smooth prepared surface. Additionally, the TURF RAKE can remove stones and debris at a rapid rate, making the maintenance of horse arenas easier than ever.


SEEDBED PREPARATION EQUIPMENT

The TURF RAKE is a unique piece of seedbed preparation equipment that removes the finer elements (from 1/2″ to 4″) from the soil, so it is ready for any turf application. It can be easily adjusted to rake and clean from 1 inch to 6 inches deep into the soil. The optional finisher assembly at the rear of the machine glides over the cleaned area leaving a smooth prepared surface.
