|Degelman Rock Picker - Model 7200 Signature|
|The Industry Standard|
The Degelman Signature series rock pickers are the result of over 50 years of pursuing excellence Degelman rock pickers are unrivalled for performance and durability and are THE
industry standard. Our attention to details means these machines will work flawlessly for years to come, as you will commonly find Degelman rock pickers made 50 years ago still working today.
|Long Swing Pole|
The hitch pole, considerable longer than typical rock pickers, is allowed to pivot, providing a large working envelope,
superb visibility for picking rocks and the ability to tuck the picker behind the tractor for narrow transport. By simply pulling a pin, the machine is readied for field or transport.
For more demanding operators, a hydraulic option is available and recommended for overall ease of use and extremely handy to precisely back up to rock piles.
|Superior Rock & Soil Separation|
Degelman rock pickers are designed to pick stones quickly, efficiently and with a minimum of soil collection. The geometry between the reel and grill is designed so that the paddle makes the first contact,
lifts and spins the stone onto the grill further separating the rock from the soil.
The unique interlaced grill and paddle teeth drop dirt easily onto the field. Even the hopper box makes use of grated spring bar strapping to keep rocks in and dirt out.
|Large Stone Capacity|
With a massive 28 inches of clearance between the paddle assembly and the grill, large stones are easily picked. These machines are designed to provide relentless heavy stone work day in and day out.
The oversized reel plates are heavy and designed to withstand abuse. The reel side plates are laminated and incorporate formed edges that dramatically increase the reel's strength and providing a
natural deflective surface. Through years of exhaustive research, development and testing, we have found that the soft steel of our cotter pins outlast all other forms of fasteners.
Small details can make a big difference.
|Advanced Reel Spring Design|
The reel spring assembly moves constantly under heavy loads and is designed to arc back under pressure and release. The spring is a heavy-duty compression design exclusive to Degelman,
that has taken years to perfect. It works better and lasts longer than typical extension springs. Paired with this is a urethane puck that dampens vibration and minimizes backlash as
the reel paddle decompresses. Finally, a simple bend integrated into the spring holder plate greatly increases the strength of the spring holder.
|Superior Paddle Teeth|
The paddel design starts with an over-sized, heavy wall tube. The teeth themselves overlap the paddle tubes to protect the tubes from damage. This small detail increases the tube strength,
creates a more robust point of rock contact, prevents tube damage through bowing and reduces dents. This is but another example of the Degelman difference - no detail is overlooked.
Degelman Industries makes use of cutting edge production technology like robotically welded paddle teeth. Perfect welds every time. Additionally, the teeth are fully hard surfaced by robots - a technique
commonly employed in industrial applications that provides three times more wear resistance.
|Hensley Excavator Tips|
From loose dirt and crushed concrete, to the most abrasive mining applications, Hensley is world renowned for high quality steel backhoe teeth. This technology is incorporated into
Degelman rock pickers. These cast steel grill tips, provide the ultimate protection against high impact and high abrasion.
The solid grill shafts are precisely milled to accept these teeth and the tips are easily replaced by removing a simple roll pin.
