Thanks guys. I guess it just is a fancy name for a sled.

We have always had a farm loader since I was real little. First one was an Energy loader on a IH M with a wide front end made out of a truck axle. Pump run off the fan pulley.

As far as rocks in the fields. We do not get many smaller rocks. Mostly bluff rock. When you find one it is too big to move. Usually put more dirt over it and farm across.

I found one out in a bottom I have just last year. Hit it with the chisel plow. Never had before. I took the backhoe out and was going to dig it out. When I got out to 10-12 feet across and still had not found the one edge I quit. Filled the hole back up and went an got some more dirt to built up over it.

Sounds like a nightmare one of dad's cousins had one year during rock-picking. Found a large rock, couldn't budge it with the rock picker, got the backhoe, and dug the length of the field before we found the edge.

We had a picker with a digger on front and a basket behind it, didn't work real well for anything but boulders, so we hand-filled it. Then we started using the backhoe and skid-loaders.

The only time I miss rocks is when it rains and I drove the Dodge to work (2wd, Cummins).

A sled without runners that the bottom is the runners.
