Fold-Up Kit For Planter ToolbarsGot a wide toolbar you'd like to be able to fold up for easy transportation down the road?
If so, you'll be interested in a "make it yourself" hinge kit from Kelderman Mfg., Oskaloosa, Iowa, which converts most rectangular rigid toolbars into a folding type.
Gary Kelderman, president, says the kit fits a wide variety of equipment, including: International Harvester rotary hoe, cultivator and Cyclo planter; Deere rotary hoe and cultivator; M and w rotary hoe, and Kewanee rotary hoe.
"Our Model 5 fits the 5 by 7-in. bar, and the Model 7 fits the 7 by 7-in. bar," Kelderman
told FARM SHOW.
The kit sells for $325, not including the cylinders. It can be shipped for do-it-yourself installation, or the conversion can be made in Kelderman's shop for an additional $100. It uses standard 8-in. stroke hydraulic cylinders.
Kits to convert other sizes and styles are available on special order.
Kelderman has just introduced a new hinge that allows the folded wings to lay flat.
