    I have project that we installed landscape and irrigation and the soil in this area is super rocky. I need to clean the top grade so I can get ready for sod. It is approx 1 acre of area to be graded clean. All of the rocks are from baseball size to golf ball size. I thought of renting a soil conditioner or landscape rake for my MT52 but was wondering if you guys have a better and easier solution. Thanks in advance.

    Not sure what your saying
    BUT theres no faster way of clearing an area of rocks and stones than the 2 tools I mentioned that are designed just for that purpose.

    I know one secret method: Bid it high enough so my tail wakes up at 6am without alarm clock even if I was up until 4am the night before LOL
