Rock Picker in Cowra NSW Australia


Canadian-made Highline rock pickers have a host of clever features that make picking rocks faster and more efficient. Things like a perimeter frame for added toughness, sweeping action on the reel that leaves dirt in the paddock, and heavy duty basket construction are some of what makes this picker the best on the market.


New Model Highline NT Rock Pickers have replaced the XL series



Raking Reel

A guided reel makes picking more efficient than conventional rock pickers. Large, 8" bogie wheels follow a special track which guide the reel arms parallel to the ground, giving over 30 cm of positive raking action in front of the apron. Rocks from 50 mm to 600 mm are lifted cleanly into the basket.

Rocks entering apronLess Dirt

Highline pickers are made to pick rocks and leave soil in the paddock where it belongs. The guided reel lifts rocks up the apron to sweep rocks away while allowing dirt to drop back to the ground. Open grate design in the bucket allows any dirt collected to drop through to the ground. The XL series rock pickers push less dirt than conventional rock pickers because the guided reel collects and lifts the rocks instead of depending on the apron to push and collect them.

High dumping for rock pilesHigh Load Dumping

The XL-6084 dumps rocks 6' (1.8m) high while the XL-78 dumps rocks 7' (2.1m) - plenty of height for loading a truck or trailer. They also dump farther back than competitors, allowing rock piles to be made higher and tighter, and trucks and trailers can be loaded closer to the centre. Large bucket capacity also increases picking efficiency by using less time running back and forth to rock piles.

Rock Picker apron with bolt-on tynes Heavy Duty Bolt-on Apron Tynes

The apron tynes are hard surfaced and cast in a special shape to prevent stubborn jammed rocks. They can be unbolted for easier hard facing, replacement, or rotating the outer tynes inward for more even wear. Reel teeth are also hard faced for extended wear life.

Spend more time removing rocks with the tyne's special profile resulting in a narrow opening at the top and wider at the bottom. Rock jams are cleared faster and easier than with round or square bars.

Rock Picker perimeter frameTough Perimeter Frame

The rectangular frame is designed to provide a solid foundation for years of trouble free operation. The frame across the front of the rock picker is positioned high enough to give plenty of clearance for larger rocks while improving the overall strength and longevity of the rock picker.

Hydraulic Motor and GearboxHydraulically Driven

Highline rock pickers use a hydraulic motor to drive the reel, allowing tighter turns and less jarring than PTO drive.

The heavy duty gearbox eliminates the worry of chains breaking or wearing out, and the reel is easily reversed from the cab to clear jams. Standard tractor hydraulics control every function of the rock picker without requiring an electronic control box.

Hydraulic Transport HitchFast Transporting

Standard hydraulic swing hitch makes moving from road to paddock even easier. Go from road transport to rock picking quickly and easily.
