Fits Land Pride Quick Hitch, and stout enough to work with any Cat. 1 tractor.
Mostly used in wide open spaces, 72” covers a nice width.
Plate steel ‘A’ frame
Plate steel offers greater strength from natural force applied downward from tractor top link.
2 1/2” x 2 1/2” x 3/16” Tubing vs. angle iron offers greater strength as well as gives a better appearance.
Expanded metal in weight tray
Adds safety over blade area, doesn’t allow foreign weight object to fall into blade area.
Blades are blunted just right to crimp the straw and not cut it, as well as disturbing the soil very little.
Blades are independent of each other allowing for less side load torque on each blade during turns.
Blade hub greasing
Each blade hub has a grease zerk for smooth rotation.
Each corner has a storage stand to aid in off the ground storing, as well as aiding in hooking to the tractor.
Blades are spaced 6 1/2” apart to offer optimum crimping.
Optional Water Tanks
Easily add up to 600 lbs. to the 72” to aid in compacted soil conditions. Can easily reduce weight by draining tank incrementally. Water tanks are safer due to precise fit and fastening vs. stacking inconsistent sized objects and difficulty in uniform fastening.
