No stone left unturned: The Kongskilde Stonebear is the perfect choice for ground care professionals who need a hard-working machine to remove stones and rubbish from construction sites, sports grounds, golf courses and other outdoor venues. Designed to collect stones from approx. 2.8 cm to 30cm diameter, the Stonebear can be deployed effectively before drilling and planting operations.
Available in two specifications the SB4000 with a 4m working width and SB5200 with a 5.2m working width, both models are perfect for one-man operator use. The Stonebear is also fitted with wide low-pressure tyres which reduce compaction and rakes that are specially designed to follow the contours of uneven land and rotate in the opposite direction to forward travel. The heavy-duty rake spikes draw the stones on to a sieve in the centre of the machine, where the stones are sieved by the tines in the rotor and thrown on to the hopper. Any extra soil is distributed through the sieve and back into the ground. When the hopper is full, a unique hydraulic dumping system, with a tipping height up to 2.3m allows easy discharge into a trailer. Unlike many conventional stone-picking machines, the Stonebear operates with a low tractor power requirement, SB4000 – 72 hp and the SB5200 – 80 hp.
Delivered with a 12-month warranty and supported by an established Kongskilde network, the Stonebear range is your perfect partner in any field of operation.
Neil Bodymore, Kongskilde product specialist says, “The Kongskilde Stonebear is an excellent machine for clearing stones from cultivated soil. We have supplied machines into several applications. We have machines out preparing ground for producing turf, and with companies preparing ground for sports fields. Also, the Stonebear is used for reclaiming land that has been cleared of buildings, I have even heard of a machine being used to collect flint stones for building”
