Anbo Manufacturing is now offering the BR-S Bucket Rake for use on tractors, skid steers and other machines with buckets. The Colville, Washington-based company says the BR-S is available in sizes fitting machines from 15 to 100 horsepower.
“With this new attachment, customers can quickly turn their existing bucket into a tool which will remove rocks and debris from the field without picking up the dirt,” says Chris Newman, president of ANBO. “As you comb through the field, this product will sort the rocks from the dirt. The rocks will roll up into the bucket and can be dumped when the bucket is full.”
Newman says the attachment takes only minutes to install with the included chain binders. If a customer prefers, the attachment can be welded in place or fixed to the machine with a bolt-on-bracket kit. A news release on the new product said the BR-S is self-aligning to ensure proper positioning and attachment of the rake to the bucket.
The steel attachment comes with 3-inch tine spacing to catch and remove even small rocks. It also features a bracing bar to spread the load and torque across the entire length and width of the bucket area and a raised retaining ridge keeps rocks from falling out until the bucket is rolled forward and emptied.
The product has a forward cradle area in the front to add higher material volume capability and to pick up and carry long items such as logs, pipes, branches and other materials that normally can’t be carried by a bucket alone. The tines feature a front cutting edge that can be used as a sod cutter and material grader to smooth an area that has been cleaned.
