    You'd think the dirt would be a lighter gray when done...

    I liked watching millennialfarmer on YT using his reel type rock picker.
    The reel type is better suited to smaller stones. The reels passing through the forks effectively lowers the minimum size it will pick up. I've picked up rocks as big as the bucket with the bucket style one ( I don't recommend it, but I've done it. The one I retired had lots of welds on the hitch and the hydraulic lifts on the front.) Going bigger than 24" with the reel style starts to cause problems with the reels stalling or breaking things on the arms. In smaller stones I can easily pick 3 to 5 times as much rock in the same amount of time. I fill the back bucket every 20 mins where the going is good.

    Same idea as posted in the film clip above, but the ones around here are bigger and fitted to 300 HP tractors. I've watched them turn 18" stones into marbles.

    That and I believe the curvature and arching as well as the rod cross tying it adds considerable strength, something that is lacking in the original posters picture, I would suggest at least 1 cross tie along those rods.

    That breaks up a lot of the rocks, but also buries them and brings the soil to the top. They are expensive to run, but are cost effective in many situations. Pretty heavy wear bill, want to get one with standard wear bits and plates. Most are AR lined and wear bars and plates need replacing often.

    I think the bucket in the OP's thread needs some reinforcement or it will bend like a pretzel. You'd need a hydrostatic tractor or a really low creeper gear for the rock crusher/burrier. It would take a very long time if you had more than a couple acres of rocks.

    I have never seen a "rock crusher" like that. Crazy
