John Deere has introduced it a new line of Root Rakes, which include models RR72, RR78 and RR84. Optimized to work with John Deere G- and E-Series skid steers and compact track loaders and K-Series compact wheel loaders, the attachments are designed for land clearing, ground leveling and moving materials away from buildings and obstructions.

Jd Root Rake 3The rakes gather rocks and debris while allowing soil to sift through, for minimal site and landscape disturbance. Built with alloy-steel construction, the units have replaceable pin-on teeth and zinc-plated pivot pins with protected zerks. A weld-on “D” ring expands the list of tasks the attachments can tackle, including pulling brush in forestry applications or moving scrap on a jobsite.

Available in 72-inch, 78-inch and 84-inch widths, the rakes help shield the front of the host machine, protecting them against damage from large piles of brush or jagged scrap. By using the universal self-cleaning Quik-Tatch system found on all Deere skid steers, CTLs and compact wheel loaders, changing attachments is easy and quick. The rakes are also compatible with several competitive models.
