The Rock Hawk works like a small crane mounted on your tractor. It has a self-tightening 3-claw grapple assembly on the end of a cable and it uses 12V DC power from your tractor’s battery to run the winch. To pick up a rock, you release the assembly from the locked position. You then lower the claws, push them into place around the rock, and stand back to lift it. Once it can clear the rock box, you rotate the mast 180˚ and lower the rock into the box. Reel the claws up tight to the boom and lock the mast and you’re on your way.
Save your back and purchase a Rock Hawk with a Power Box or a Rock Box as a kit!
