Ashland Hydro Trash Rakes
The Ashland Hydro Trash Rake is a knuckle-style boom device designed to reach into the depths of the water - up to 50 feet - and engage the bottom of the trash rack bars. An articulating rake (with an opposing thumb attachment) at the end of the boom sweeps the rack bars of any debris on its upward stroke. The Trash Rake system can move the length of the intake, by a 4wd trolley system that runs on two 80# rails mounted onto your deck. This allows the operator to easily move the machine along the intake to handle debris or perform simple facility maintenance. We manually operate our machine with maximum efficiency to pluck or guide debris to a channel, sluice gate, over the dam or be loaded onto a truck - all while the unit is in full operation.
Ashland Hydro Trash Rakes, formerly known as Hawk Trash Rakes, are designed to remove a wide variety of debris from weeds to logs as well as man-made debris. The rake head is equipped with an opposing thumb allowing objects up to 25" in diameter to be handled. Ashland Hydro Trash Rakes features two models:
- the TR3500 model works up to a depth of 25 feet
- and the TR5000 model works between depths of 35 to 50 feet
Both models are rated to lift 4,000 pounds at the rack and 1,000 pounds with the arm extended 15 feet out from the rack. For purposes of determining debris disposal options, the machine can lift approximately 1,000 pounds to a height of about 26 feet above the deck. The Standard Warranty covers everything for 12 months.
