SOIL-MAX SHAPER PRO
Tiling a few fields before next spring? Level out the ridges that tile plows leave behind in one pass with the Soil-Max Shaper Pro. The Shaper Pro has a working width of nearly 8 feet, and its 36 rotating T1 steel blades form a 24-inch double helix that busts up soil into fine particles, pushes the dirt toward the center and then refills tile-plow trenches. For more information, contact Soil-Max Inc., Terre Haute, Ind., at 888-764-5629 or visit soilmax.com.
One tool has many applications. The Sweep Rock Action Grapple from Worksaver allows for raking and removal of rocks, trees or other material. The patent-pending design keeps the front rake of the sweep clamp open during use until the rear section of the clamp either closes or contacts the materials. The spring pressure then causes the front rake to rotate toward the bucket in a sweeping motion, moving the material into the bucket. The grapples come in widths of 72, 78 or 84 inches. For more information, contact Beaver Valley Supply Co., Atwood, Kan., at 785-626-3251.
