Ideal Manufacturing has introduced its new Super Duty Rockaway model, a landscaping tool that tills and fluffs soil while removing rocks. It attaches and detaches easily to a loader bucket in minutes and quickly turns rough, rocky ground into a finely groomed seedbed. Rocks are separated from soil by a single, rugged rotor studded with durable Hardox steel teeth arranged in a spiral pattern.
Improvements to the previous model include a stronger hood design, front push bar, heavier tube frame, stainless steel wear runners, enlarged rotor shaft, heavier duty bearings, and new, larger #80 drive sprockets and chain. The new Super Duty Rockaway Model 7415SD accommodates 68-73.50-in. buckets. Rugged, matching companion buckets are available, and the same Rockaway can be used on several different buckets of the same size.
Designed and built by a landscaper frustrated by costly chain and slat replacement on competitive units, Rockaway is simple in construction and inexpensive to maintain. It has only two greaseable bearings and one chain.
