    raking rocks from soil with x570

    HI
    first time here. I have a new x570 . We recently cleared some forest off our property
    and our left rock soil that has been graded. Is there a strong rake like implement that
    can be attached to my tractor to clear the surface rocks off the ground so i can then plant
    grass
    thank you

    You will need to get a sleeve hitch for the back of your tractor. You can get them in power and manual lift. I would recommend the power ones. JD makes a direct fit power one that operates from the hydraulic cylinder that lifts the mower deck. Johnny Bucket makes a universal mount that works off an electric actuator.
    JD did make a manual one that uses a lever to work it. I'm not 100% sure it is still available.

    After that you can attach all kinds of rear attachments. I'd probably look into.

    A harrow is a pretty good tool and easy to pull with a lawn tractor. Or you could go the super-cheap route and drag around a section of chain link fence. I have done that before with real good results. Neither will put the rocks in a pile, but it loosens them right up making it easy to rake them out.

    What Levi said, and if you don't have a 3 point on your tractor you can get an ATV one that you just pull with your tractor.

    Nothing will work well for your tractor For me what worked was a rottotiller / did one raw collect manual the stones in my bucket I have a york rake with wheels but it did not work for meI think the best tool would be a cart /trailer collect manual the stones and put them in cart Depends how is your soil you can buy topsoil and cover it
