1. The Harley Rake Attachment
The Harley Rake attachment is what you use when precise grading or leveling needs to occur. It has the unique ability to lift small to medium size rocks out of the ground and knock them forward using carbide nubs on the heavy roller.

This (3 ft. bar) toro trencher is the attachment you need when you must create a 6 inch wide trench opened up. (no deeper than 36 inches) This is the perfect cutting tool for a DIY sprinkler installation, french drainage pipes and electrical conduit runs. We run our trencher with carbide soil cups blades and with shark teeth to manage Northern Jersey’s rocky conditions.
Note: any deeper trenching (requires a 4-5 ft bar) this requires an another digging solution that will also carry true excavating insurance to manage risks below 4 ft.

Four Auger Bits!
Drill into any type of soil using our multiple auger bits to create exactly the right hole for your project. Select from our 4 large bits.
9 inch (dirt), 12 inch (rock), 18 inch (dirt) or 30 inch (dry well) auger bits.
Rocky conditions? Ask us to bring our special 12 inch “Rock Crushing Bit” with its rotating carbide nubs instead of standard soil blades. The perfect rock crushing bit for Northern Jersey’s rocky soil.
Auger Attachment with Stump Planner
This special planner bit for our Auger Attachment is an innovative, silent, clean method to destroy small to medium sized tree stumps. However this planner has many other unique uses. Example: When trenching near a tree often large tree roots will block the trenchers cutting progress. The root often is thick and it’s positioned too deep for a stump grinder or fanged ripper to hit it properly . This is the perfect situation for the Auger Planner Bit. We lower it into the trench poke the planners tip into the root and start drilling. Slicing away the obsitcle.
Sometimes customers need to drill a hole in to a leveled stump where a new plant can be replanted. No other tool can do this.
4. The 4 Fanged Ripper Attachment
Our 4 Fanged Ripper Attachment is a brush clearing and turf rip up beast. This plant and soil tearing attachment is extremely versatile. It often is used to disturb the ground before Harley Raking or Soil Cultivating occurs. It dislodges any rocks and rips away any underground root or vine. It truly can sink its teeth into almost anything and rip it out. It easily drags or pushed all things away. It can be used to closely scrape the ground using its bladed top edge. The work seems allmost endless for this attachment.
5. Soil Cultivator Attachment
The Soil Cultivator Attachment remains the perfect tool for roto-tilling (blades churn 6 inches down) and using its spinning leveler it recreates in one reverse pass. It can take a bad weedy grass area and turn that area into the perfect fluffy topsoil for reseeding. Don’t overbuy yards of topsoil. Many times adding topsoil is just unnecessary because this attachment can churn dirt that’s already there.
Note: must avoid cultivating over existing sprinkler/drainage lines.
Note: the ground is usually is fang ripped and or Harley Raked prior to Soil Cultivating to pre-remove most surface showing rocks.
Note: cultivating should be targeted for a “dry dirt” day (no muddy conditions). When booking this online I advise adding a roll over 2nd booking date to help avoid weather delays.
6. Screening Rock Bucket With Grapple Attachment
The Screening Rock Bucket With Grapple Attachment is the attachment you want to request when you have leveled a rocky area and this created large combination dirt and rock piles that must now somehow be efficiently separated.
This special screening bucket can drop the dirt through slits while holding the rocks back to be dropped and piled.
This hydraulic bucket has 3 grapple that are is ideal for grabbing large brush piles and loading them into a dumpster or trailer.
7. Stump Grinding Attachment
Our Stumper 220 Attachment is another key attachment. Because it’s an attachment it’s the grinder that we load when a customer needs grinding service along with some other yard services. It’s simple and it’s safe to use. In some ways safer than our larger, powerful, fully dedicated “Walk Behind” Toro Stump Grinder.
The Stumper 220 attachment has a 22″ diameter cutting wheel with 11 thick carbide teeth on a 1/2″ thick wheel. This helps it to achieve a 6″ cut per pass. Because its “side directed” it is able to lift up high and get very close to objects like fences, homes and the larger chips will fly away directed to the side. This maneuverable attachment is ideal for lowering any stump(s) 2 to 3 inches below the ground surface. A forward facing large grinder that spins using high RPM’s can slam and shoot surface rocks too hard. The stumper is tough effective and unique in its many grinding capabilities.
8. 4 in 1 Bucket Attachment w/teeth
The 4 in1 Bucket Attachment got its unusual name due to its multipurpose design.

It’s the preferred bucket we use to pry up large concrete remnants. It’s the bucket we choose to grab large railroad ties logs or trees parts to load them into dumpsters.
Having teeth on the lip means that this bucket can dig. Having a grapple capability means it can open, close, grab carry and drop.
