The Sund pickup were noted for picking up stray straws much better than factory pickups. However, they were also noted for picking up small rocks that other pickups would not pick up.

If you have a lot of small rocks, you might want to look for a different pickup. The rock trap is you only safeguard, but when that gets full the rocks will go on into the cylinder.

I had one for years and never picked up a rock. Maybe I have lighter rocks.

Maybe depends on what the local rocks are like. rounded rocks (river rock / glacier rocks)of less than 4 inch diameter almost always fall through an open design sund raking pickup. If you have thin flat sheet sandstone / limestone / shale rocks, they will sometimes bridge enough pickup teeth to stay on the pickup and into the combine
