Self-Propel Conversion For Pull Type Balers
"Interest has been tremendous," says a spokesman for Keith Manufacturing, prime developer and manufacturer of the "One Wheeler" system. With quick-attach adapter plates, the owner of the front steering One Wheeler assembly canuse it as a transferable unit that can go from baler to sprayer to corn chopper and other equipment originally designed for towi ag behind a tractor. Instead of buying reach piece of equipment as a self propelled unit, the One Wheeler provides self-propelling capability with lower cost pull type equipment. When you buy a new machine, you simply buy another pull type model and use the existing One Wheeler to convert it into a self-propelled unit.
The conversion assembly provides full power steering with extremely short turning radius. It offers full hydrostatic drive with infinitely variable speed from 0 to 20 mph, It's equipped with planetary hub lockout and tow bar, allowing one operator to move the One Wheeler-equipped baler, and a pickup truck loaded with wire, fuel and other supplies, down the road and from field to field. The unit is also designed for full control of the baler right from the driver's seat. The cab is located high enough for excellent vision both forward and backward. An engine mounted on the baler provides power for the baler, and for the self-propelling capability provided by the One Wheeler conversion unit.
