The guy needs to get his lazy butt off that thing and rake some rocks.
When I was a kid of 16 or so I had to do 20 1/2 bushel buckets of rocks out of the garden to get permission to take the truck to the swimming hole.

Ikr? I was thinking the whole time "Why in the he11 did they leave all those rocks?" Certainly clever though. I can see it being popular in regions with that soft dirt I have heard exist outside the south.

To me it doesn't look like it's doing anything other than skimming over the surface and clunking on all the rocks. Nice concept, but need improvement.

There is no way this contraption will ever work worth a hoot for many boring reasons.
Yes it could be done but would have to be geared down so slow it would take forever.
