TRK offers the thickest shanks in the industry for rakes, negating the need for gussets, so nothing will impede the flow of material between the shanks, according to the manufacturer.

Severe duty scoop rakes have an overall effectiveness for heavy applications and production land clearing, with thicker shanks with replaceable teeth drastically reducing maintenance over the rake's life cycle. The scoop design allows the operator to get right under stumps, big rocks and large roots. Another advantage is the scoop profile allows the operator to handle bigger loads of material, and easily sift out the dirt.

All TRK severe duty rakes are 5th generation designs. The geometry, grades and thicknesses of steel are all optimized for the best cost weight ratio, with angled cutting edge slicing through roots at the perfect angle, according to the manufacturer.

TRK offers the thickest shanks in the industry for rakes, negating the need for gussets, so nothing will impede the flow of material between the shanks. The extra thick shank is self-supported and longer than other rakes, allowing for deeper unimpeded ground penetration.

TRK sources high quality steel from both the United States and Canada, according to owner Thomas Knapp.

"It's the small details that make a quality product. Our customers come to us again and again because they know we take pride in what we manufacture. Our steel is always preheated to 300F before welding, never exceeds 500F for interpass welds and we only use top quality metal core mig wire."
