I made a root rake for my machine and have found if very useful when clearing brush etc. If you own a machine,I'd guess you have a welder. Not too hard to copy a existing design and fab one for your needs. I don't have a picture of the completed rake handy, but here is a pic of the beginning of it. I added a frame approx 3' high over the top and some heavy duty expanded metal to contain the brush. I use my thumb to load or stack it and keep going. Works well for me ! I used old grader shanks for the teeth and some surplus 2" x 8" tube for the portion you see here. The rake pins to my blade through the existing holes that are intended to be used as lift points according to my owners manual. I don't push too hard, but with worn grousers it will spin a track before anything gets close to breaking.
