What is a Land Clearance Rake?

A land clearance rake for an excavator is essentially the same as a garden rake, but made large enough and strong enough to fit on an excavator!

What is a land clearance rake used for?

As its name suggests, these attachments are often used by landscapers and groundworkers to clear ground prior to starting building / landscaping etc as they allow for quick and easy removal of small shrubs, brambles, rubbish etc without removing too much soil.

How to make a land rake?

With over 20 years experience in manufacturing excavator attachments, Rhinox are well placed to advise on the design and manufacture.

The most critical factor of a land rake is the tines - both the material used, and also the design.

Obviously the tines take a lot of the brunt of the attachment doing its work, so it is important that these are made of a high grade steel to provide maximum wear resistance. 

Thickness of the tines is also very important, and this is often where manufacturers seek to cut corners, but if the tines are not thick enough they will buckle and bend and the attachment will fail early.

The other critical factor is where the tines attach to the top tube.  This needs to be carefully designed to ensure there it is strong enough to prevent the tines from being torn off in operation.
