Why Power Rakes are a great addition to any plant fleet

Our experienced welders at Masterhitch Europe Ltd have the ability to manufacture an extensive selection of plant equipment. With a wide range of digger attachments available it can be hard to determine what attachment you require for the job at hand. This week we are focusing on Power Rakes. They are regularly used in the construction and farming industry. But how can your fleet benefit from using them?

What are Power Rakes?

Power rakes, also commonly known as land clearance rakes are used in the farming and agricultural industry. However, they can be widely used for construction, and other types of projects. 

Think of it as a garden rake, but made big and strong enough to be equipped to an excavator. They are primarily used to clear and prepare the land before work begins. This could be mean the removal of the following materials without affecting the soil too much:

  • Shrubs
  • Brambles
  • Rubbish

They are also very useful for ripping up any stubborn tree roots and other materials that could be caught in the soil.

Alongside the obvious uses of farming, and preparing the soil for planting, power rakes can be used for not so obvious tasks. If you’re looking to invest in versatile equipment, we would highly recommend power rakes. Not only will they complete the above jobs, they can also take the place of a riddle bucket. Riddle buckets are perfect for sorting two different types of materials from each other. Why use two different attachments when you could use one? Depending on the space between the tines, power rakes would effectively sort larger materials from soil as an example. 

Masterhitch Power Rakes

Here at Masterhitch we can manufacture plant equipment to suit you, and fit your machines. As standard we do stock power rakes to fit 7 to 45 tonne machinery. 

Our experienced team will be able to create an attachment outside of these sizes if required. We can work closely with you to design the type of plant equipment you need.

Due to the type of work that power rakes undertake, it is vital that the plant equipment is made from the best materials. In order to make it durable and long lasting it is made of British Standard Steel.
