Flexxifinger Quicker Picker Rock Picker:

The Flexxifinger® Quicker Picker Rock Picker is the world's first Rotary Rock Picker for skid loader use. Now Farmers and Landscapers can pick rocks with ease, picking rock 2 to 3 times faster than rock buckets. The Flexxifinger® Quicker Picker will fit on any skid loader with a quick attach plate. This design is modeled after the rotary combine and we all know how the rotary combine revolutionized the farming industry.

Simply scoop, spin, and the rock is picked clean. Made of heavy duty steel and engineered with patented technology, the Flexxifinger® Quicker Picker will last the average farmer a life time. Farmers can now pick rocks with ease, picking tough rocks that are barely visible. Simply scoop, spin, and the rock is picked clean. The Flexxifinger® Quicker Picker is versatile and can be used by landscapers with freshly cleared lots, picking tree stumps, pieces of wood, rocks, tin cans, hub caps and any other debris in its way. Junk yards and recycle yards can use the Flexxifinger® Quicker Picker to clean debris keeping sites clean.

The Flexxifinger® Quicker Picker can turn your land mines into gold mines - landscapers will pay top dollar for clean field stones.

I have used this Rock Picker for a few years now and LOVE it. It is so easy to use and really picks rock fast without all the irritation of shaking my bucket. I also like that I can get rid of all the dirt, corn stalks and don't leave big holes in my field. I know quite a few farmers that have one as well and some of them even use on tractor front loaders. GREAT product glad I use it!!!

I understand concept, but a good reel rock picker if conditions are right would run circles around it, Scott.

At the farm show the pictures they had at their display booth showed it leaving big holes in the field after picking a rock. I asked the guy running the booth what that was about, he said you need a loader coming behind you filling in the holes. I laughed and kept on walking.

don't think it will work very well in the heavier soils. the videos ive watched in the past were all sandy light soils. could still be better then competitors, haven't ever used a rock picker... no rocks in my area.

In our heavy soil it needs to be dry or else you get a lot of baseball size mud balls in the rocks. Looks like about 25 % mud when dumping out the dumptruck.
When you scoop up a rock you spin it and at the same time drive forward beyond the little pile of dirt and then lower it till the back of the robo just touches the ground and pull the dirt back into the hole while reversing.
I use it on a Kubota R510 payloader.

Have you tried to spin it a little longer with some more rocks in the barrel to get rid of the mud balls?
Are you otherwise happy with the Rock Picker?Any problems?

Neat unit. Wonder how it'll handle half buried 2 footers. Most of our problems are that size. Lucky if the drill pops them out and we see them to pick. Unless we can see them to mark and come with a loader or cat. This outfit would be great for worked breaking. How's it for getting sticks and roots?

Just picked one up last fall at Red Deer farm show. Used it for 3-4 days this spring and just love it. Going to put it on the front end loader of the tractor cause with the skid steer you sit to low and its hard to spot all the rocks. Hoping sitting higher in the tractor we wont miss as many. As far as picking and cleaning the rocks, its fast and efficient.

If you watch the video ( Flexxifinger® Quicker Picker Rock Picker ) you can see that they are backing up after picking the rock and then spin the Rock Picker to fill the holes. Just let us know if you have any other questions,we are happy to answer them.
Can I get a price and what is difference between the 800 and 400? I had hard time finding dealer from zip code 60109
