Move somewhere where there aren't any rocks!

But seriously, the perfectionist's answer is to get something like a rockhound to windrow the rocks off to the side of the driveway and then rake afterwards.

If the number of rocks isn't to bad you could get a rock bucket for your loader and then rake, pick up the bigger rocks with the rock bucket and then make a final pass with the rake again.

I have a question somewhat related to what the OP asked. I've been using my landscape rake (LR2060L) on my 1025R to attempt to get rocks out of a field I want to seed. It sorta does OK, and with the rake at an angle, I can move most of the rocks into windrows, as others have suggested. The rake, however, tends to move quite a bit of the soft dirt as well.

My question is once I have these windrows of dirt and rocks, how do I get rid of them? Currently, I've been using a plastic tine rake to sorta fling them into the FEL bucket, but that takes forever. Does anyone have a technique to pick
them up that works well? The windrows are not very tall, so I don't think the loader could pick them up by itself - I think it would just push them aside and not scoop them up.

Sorry if this is a really dumb newbie question.... :)
It's not a dumb question at all. It's an issue that lots of people have run in to over the years and frankly, there really isn't a good (cheap) solution. The "best" solution I've seen is to find a single row potato harvester and then attach a trailer to the back end of that so that the rocks drop into the trailer and you can haul them off and dump them where you want them.

You can put a rock bucket on your loader and pick up rocks one scoop at a time with that too The dirt/fines will sift out with a shake or two.
