New Products For ATV's
An English company introduced several ATV inventions at the show, including a front-mount calf crate that allows you to work on calves within the first 2 days of their life, before they become too wary to be caught. The calf stands on the ground but is partially suspended by underbelly straps that prevent it from crouching. Unit latches onto a mounting frame that can be supplied as a kit or as part of the calf crate product.
The company's new front-mounted, 4-ft. wide scraper blade can be used to scrape manure in cow sheds, hog and poultry buildings. The blade is equipped with replaceable bottom and wing strips. The blade is raised or lowered manually (electric lift is optional).
A new timber hauler is designed to be used with an ATV fitted with wheel chains and an electric winch. The benefit of using an ATV for logging is reduced damage to growing trees. The pivoting tandem axle and compact design allow it to easily travel over rough terrain. It's adjustable for different log lengths. An optional crane can be used to assist loading and drop-sided posts are avail-able to speed up unloading.
A "weatherstop" cab is designed to fit most 4-wheeler ATV's. It has wide hinged doors for easy entry and a tough glass windscreen with wiper, plexiglass side window for good visibility, and fold-up rear panel for easy access to rear-mounted equipment. A fiberglass fairing provides an effective brush guard and protection from the wind.
Also available is an automatic electro-hydraulic soil sampling unit for 4-wheeler ATV's.
