Barber Model 200 Road Rakes
December 5, 2008

The Barber Model 200 Road Rakes are designed to deliver fast, efficient and safe roadway debris removal of tire pieces, trash bags, bottles, mufflers, hubcaps and assorted metal and plastic parts in one pass. Towed by a 1-ton truck or larger, the Road Rake utilizes caster tires to follow the contour of the pavement. Stainless steel tines are mounted in offset rows to rake over the road surface where debris passes under a flap to a moldboard which traps the debris allowing the tines to lift and move it on a powered bar conveyor that elevates it to a hopper with 4 cubic yard capacity. The hydraulically powered hopper can be raised and dumped as needed. In addition, two rotating gutter brooms increase the cleaning width and sweep debris away from barriers and other obstacles, channeling into the front of the picking mechanism. There are two models of the Road Rake. The units can be powered hydraulically by either the towing unit or a 19 hp diesel engine mounted on the front of the Road Rake.
