Résumé
The raking of debris originated as an agricultural technique in silviculture, the prime objective of this treatment is to push debris into piles to facilitate subsequent regeneration practices. Raking has a lower productivity than most site preparation treatments because of alternate backing up and then pushing forward motions. Nevertheless, the simplicity of rakes, their low cost, and the ability to use a variety of prime movers makes raking a suitable technique for small-scale, site preparation operations. This report reviews numerous skidder-mounted piling rakes and their use on woodlots.
