In the early 1960’s the idea of making a rugged and durable rock picker took form on the Bussiere farm near Vonda. Farmers soon saw the need for a durable design. Rock-o-matics have been recognized ever since as exactly that – durable, tough and simple. Although production of new machines has stopped, ROCK-O-MATIC has most replacement parts. Recently we started to refurbish ROCK-O-MATIC machines.
