Stone Picking


The TURF RAKE stone picking machine removes stones from scarified soil and expedites a variety of turf restoration processes. Adapted from the same tine-raking technology as the proven SURF RAKE, the TURF RAKE is a fast and effective stone picking solution.

The TURF RAKE penetrates the soil with hundreds of tines, removes stones and debris, and levels the target area in one pass. Because the TURF RAKE cleans and levels in one process, it leaves the area ready for seeding and eliminates the need for multiple rock picking machines.

The TURF RAKE rock rake excels at removing rock and debris from soil to prepare it for multiple applications. Among its rock raking applications, the TURF RAKE facilitates horse track and arena maintenance, golf course creation, farm seed bed preparation, and strafing range munitions removal. In addition to these specific uses, the TURF RAKE proves effective for many other stone-picking applications.

Many horse arenas and tracks use the Barber TURF RAKE to remove stones and rock from their soil as part of regular maintenance. This video shows the spring cleanup of a horse arena in New England and shows the TURF RAKE removing piles of stone and rock from the soil.
