A friend has a homemade rake that bolts onto ditching bucket, made from square bars about 4" long and roughly 3" apart. Works really well as you can rake in to a pile and load without changing bucket.

This will give you some idea of cost:

There are many different styles, like for instance these Evans & Reid land rakes:

I've got a 60" reed bucket, which work in a similar way, but has an edge so you can still dig and scrape with it, but has about 13 of 1/2" thick tines spaced so can be used to sift like a riddle bucket. Depends what you want to do with it.

I have one on my Volvo.made out of a 600mm length of 4 x2 box and got 7 tines made out of amazone ke power Harrow blades.i use it a lot.use it on site work for levelling and getting gardens sorted.can dig with it too surprisingly.great for sorting rubble and rubbish from soil.i was not sure it would work when I made it but it's great.ive worn an inch of the end of the blades in the ten years I've had it so you can see it gets lot of use.also good for moving trees,branches etc.

I've got rake buckets, for the 3,8 & 22 tonners, like a ditching/grading bucket shape, but made of plates 75mm apart, so it's a rake and a sort of riddle bucket as well. They work really well as you can pick things up easily.
Not the best pick of it, but the only one I can find.
The last two were from Vemac engineering, and were verg good value I thought, 8tonner one was about £450 iirc, but I'd give Evans & Reid a call also, as I've had very good service from them. Once you've got one it's surprising what you end up using it on(y)
