Use these root rakes for land-clearing, other tasks (with related video)
The new John Deere Root Rakes are the latest additions to the expanding lineup of Worksite Pro attachments. Choose from Models RR72, RR78 and RR84. The rakes are suited for land-clearing and ground-leveling jobs. They are optimized to work with the company’s G- and E-Series skid steers and compact track loaders (CTLs), and K-Series compact wheel loaders. The attachments get the job done quickly and can be a more economical option over dozer blades.
The root rakes are ideal for land clearing, ground leveling and moving materials away from buildings and obstructions. The attachments were designed to easily gather rocks and debris, while allowing soil to sift through, for minimal site and landscape disturbance and maximum efficiency.
Built with alloy-steel construction, replaceable pin-on teeth and zinc-plated, pivot pins with protected Zerks, these attachments can ruggedly resist impact that any ground materials provide. Another product feature is a weld-on “D” ring that expands the list of job site tasks these root rakes can tackle, such as pulling brush in forestry applications or scrap on a job site.
The root rakes are available in 72-inch (RR72), 78-inch (RR78) and 84-inch (RR84) width for maximum productivity. The height and width of the root rakes also help shield the fronts of the machines, protecting against damage from large piles of brush or jagged scrap.
With the universal, self-cleaning Quik-Tatch easy attachment system found on all John Deere skid steers, CTLs and compact wheel loaders, the machine can easily add and remove the root rake in little time. The new attachment is also backed by John Deere parts, service and warranty coverage. Like all Worksite Pro attachments, the root rake is also compatible with many competitive models.
The root rakes increase the productivity of any compact machine being used in job site prep applications, says Gregg Zupancic, product marketing manager, John Deere Construction & Forestry.
