I've been doing a little research online and have found a few options but nothing local. Anyone know where I might find a 3 point root rake close by? I'm not talking about the flimsy landscape rakes but sho'nuff heavy duty rake to clear smaller saplings and brush...something like you see here.

You got a link Mr. Hall? All I saw was the landscape rakes with the flexible tines.

I have a hard time picturing one that heavy duty for a tractor,sounds more like something that would go on a dozer,could be wrong.

How about a box blade with the rippers extended all the way down? It won't be as heavy duty as the ripper you posted the link to, but it will be better than a landscape rake.

I've thought about this as well but might have to get some longer rippers. Also considered turning them backward and bringing the toplink way in so the "teeth are bared" when the box is fully lowered. Slowly going backward instead of forward may better allow the weight of the box to ride the brush down and might give me the leverage to uproot little stuff.

Here's another photo to give a better idea of what one would look like on a tractor. Even thought about fabricating on the existing boxblade but again, turning the teeth backward for pushing.

That IS HEAVY,but,your gonna have to ride over everything to drag it,and as close as that is to the tires,doesnt seem like you would be able to carry much JMO

Reread your original post,you'd be surprised how hard its gonna be to "uproot" small stuff,very aggrevating with a rake type implement,saplings will slip out,you'll have to back up a LOT! Just a heads up.
