Look What They're Doing With ATV'sBritish farmers use their ATV's for just about everything thanks to a wide range of implements designed solely for 3 and 4-wheelers.
Crayford Equipment Co. introduced a new 6-ft. wide seed drill and an engine-driven snowblower at the Royal.
The seed drill rides on flotation tires so it can be pulled through even the wettest ground for early season seeding. The company says farmers also use the drill to "patch" skips in big fields and to finish off odd-shaped fields. The ATV drill seeds at a rate of 3 acres per hour and is equipped with a pegged-roller metering system that adapts easily to small grains and even tiny grass and vegetable seeds. A single control arm adjusts depth. The drill sells for $4,000.
Crayford's shaft-driven ATV snowblower is powered by a rear-mounted engine. A driveshaft runs under the machine up to the front-mount blower. The snowblower sells for $2,240.
