An invention from two Iowa farmers, Britt Shelton and Darrel Hay, solves the problem of trash buildup on a cornhead. Called the trash reel, the device is basically a mini corn reel that is pre-plumbed to be powered off the combine's hydraulic system. To activate the reel, the operator simply folds it down, turns it on with the included valve, and continues to combine corn. The reel turns slowly, keeping the trash stirred and moving. Price: $1,750. Contact Shelton/Hay LLC, Dept. FIN, 1524 160th St., Woolstock, IA 50599, 515/839-5524, visit or, or circle 194. It is also available through Remlinger Manufacturing at 800/537-7370 or
