I have some real rocky ground that i need to prep for grass. Probably about 1/4 acre, but lots of rock!

I've saved up and I wanna buy a rock bucket. Looking for advice regarding design. The main variables Ive seen are tine spacing, round versus flat tines, and solid or tined rear end. I realize im probably looking at 2-3 inches for spacing based on the rocks Ive got. Anybody here have any experience with these buckets and can give me advice? Particularly whether the solid back or tined back works better, or material falling back on the machine etc?? Thanks

Can you not rent a bucket at the local equipment rental place instead of buying one?

I wish. No place local to me rents them. One place I haven't tried yet, 50 miles each way, it's a long shot but even if they have one, it's 30 bucks a day plus travel and fuel. I need a few good days use, I was hoping to resell the bucket and not lose more than a rental fee worth of value.
