Schulte 2500 Giant Rock Picker

A large capacity picker available in standard or contractor configurations.

  • Large 1.93 m³ (2.5 cubic yard) hopper.
  • Durable tapered T-iron grate with 38 mm (1 1/2”) thick teeth eliminates jamming while allowing soil to sift through for clean rock picking.
  • Batt tubing has 10 mm (3/8”) thick walls.
  • Wrap around, hard surfaced batt teeth offer strength and wear resistance.
  • Large heavy wire springs hold batts firmly in position and cushion shock loads. Spring coil diameter is reduced at the ends to minimize the possibility of breaking the spring hooks.
  • Floating grate protects the machine from damage due to large immovable rocks.
  • Pivoting hitch pole allows the machine to be quickly moved from the offset picking position to a centred transport position.
  • Large 16.5L X 16.1 tires provide superior flotation.
  • Rugged and reliable Char-Lynn 2000 series hydraulic motor.
  • Contractor version includes heavy duty 150 mm (6”) round super-batts and replaceable teeth on the pick-up grate.
  • Full one-year warranty on materials and workmanship.

A Giant at work...

Both of these videos were shot during a start-up of a 2500 Giant Contractor. As part of our normal delivery service, we get the machine working on the owner's tractor and teach them how to use it.

Whilst the conditions weren't ideal, the paddock had been filled with soil and rock from another location and had received 40mm of rain just a few days before, you can get a good idea of the performance of a Schulte 2500 Giant Rock Picker.
