John Deere’s new root rakes (RR72, RR78 and RR84) are optimized to work with John Deere G- and E-Series skid steers and compact track loaders (CTLs), and K-Series compact wheel loaders. These attachments get the job done quickly and can be a more economical option over dozer blades, according to Deere.

The root rakes are ideal for land clearing, ground leveling, and moving materials away from buildings and obstructions. These attachments were designed to easily gather rocks and debris, while allowing soil to sift through, for minimal site and landscape disturbance and maximum efficiency. Built with alloy-steel construction; replaceable pin-on teeth; and zinc-plated, pivot pins with protected Zerks, these attachments can resist impact that any ground materials provide. Another key feature is a weld-on “D” ring that expands the list of potential tasks, such as pulling brush in forestry applications or scrap on a job site. 

The root rakes are available in 72-inch (RR72), 78-inch (RR78), and 84-inch (RR84) width. The height and width of the root rakes also help shield the fronts of the machines, protecting against damage from large piles of brush or jagged scrap. 

With the universal, self-cleaning Quik-Tatch easy attachment system found on all John Deere skid steers, CTLs and compact wheel loaders, the machine can easily add and remove the root rake. The new attachment is backed by John Deere parts, service, and warranty coverage.
