Only just seen this....!
We made some, 20-odd years ago, using 2 to 3m lengths of aluminium box section (100x25mm, IIRC) ftted with a prupose-made steel bracket fabricated for us by a local engineering company, into which we could attach a stele from a tarmac rake (roughly 25-30mm dia, chunkier than a brush stele).
I'm not sure what happened to them. I got injured a few months after I had them made, but I know they were used for a good while after. I can only assume my brother sold them off when we cleared the yard after my owld feller died.
We did have a Probst-like version of one I bought in Gemrany in the early 1990s. It may have been Optimas, but I have a sneaky feeling it was a cheaper Eastern European version from the then Czechoslovakia or Poland. That was a good tool, but I think it got nicked on a site in Runcorn.
