Herm if there are not too many rocks I'd pick them up by hand,then get a set of old used blades for the mower and chop the heck out of the sticks. After a couple of rounds the sticks will be compost and you can put on good blades and mow away.

A York rake would probably be your best bet. I was in a similar situation, (re-landscaped yard, dirt rocks and roots everywhere), but I chose the old by hand method and collected them with a wheelbarrow for dumping. Keep in mind that my yard is only 1 acre, (and only my front and side yards were worked on), making it managable for me. The last time I used a York rake, I found myself ripping up chunks of dirt as the soil was very moist although no where near soaked. This was about 10 years ago and I was new to using a York rake. As much as I love using my equipment, there are times when the old by hand method works best. Just my own experience of course.

I've been using a tow behind dethatcher,works great for what your doing,costs a little more than double the price of renting a york,but you will have other uses for it down the road.

      Good morning peeps! I’m always searching for helpful information with my AC collection. Hope to find out new information and pass on my own experience in restoration. Here are some pics of my babies. I’m still looking for front rims for the 410 so yesterday I put the 310 wheels on took it for a drive. Working pretty good but still needs some carb work. Gotta get the 310 running next. Have a great day!😁
