The better to see you

New warning strobes from Compliance Safety provide a highly visible flash to warn other highway drivers or other workers on the farm of your location. The strobes secure to any machine with three high-powered magnets that are strong enough to withstand speeds or wind of more than 90 mph. The tough poly strobes are fully gasketed to keep moisture out of the housing and away from the bulb. The bulb sits on an internal shock absorber to handle machine vibration or bounce. Two D-cell batteries power the lights, which come in amber, blue, red or white. Suggested price: $34.95. Contact Compliance Safety Inc., Dept. FIN, Box 676, Northbrook, IL 60065, 800/340-3413.

Fill and drill

Three new single-auger models have been added to Unverferth's line of Drill Fills. They are now available for 15-ft. Tye series V drills, Great Plains 1500 series drills and Case 5400 drills. Dual hydraulic controls let you operate from ground level or from the unit's platform. The Drill Fill stores across the rear of the drill with the help of a spring-assisted vertical lift auger, and it can be mounted for left- or right-hand loading. Contact Unverferth Mfg. Co., Dept. FIN, Box 357, Kalida, OH 45853, 800/322-6301.
