"One-Touch" Push Button Marker Control
The "Marker Master" simply automates the hydraulics on your existing markers. It consists of a 3-button lighted control box. An amber diode lights up when the left marker is extended, and a red diode lights up when the right marker is extended. When either diode is flashing it tells you that the marker is moving in or out to that position. Green diodes indicate when the markers are retracted.
"It makes turning at the end of the field a lot easier because you already have enough to do then, especially if you're planting," says Stewart Peterson. "It eliminates the need to look back and forth to make sure your markers are working properly. It works great at night because the lighted display lets you know for sure that your markers are working properly."
The unit's manifold can be plugged directly to the tractor remote hydraulic outlets or used in parallel with the hydraulic fan motor, or hooked up to the tractor's "power beyond" port. If the markers start to sag you can set the unit to give a shot of oil every 15 seconds to 2 minutes to keep the marker working at full capacity.
Sells for $835 (U.S.) plus S&H.
