Explanation:
or
guard iron.
But to be honest, these are given as translations for cacciapietre, in american English: cow catcher; if this isn't an obstacle, I don't know (looks that there is only one document on the web (as by Google) with your cacciaostacoli, and since it also mentions cacciapietre, it may just be the document that you are translating).
Greetings,
