Safe, Quick Gauge Wheel Adjuster
It consists of a 3/4-in. dia., 18-in. long screw that attaches to the gauge wheel mounting bracket. New mounting brackets welded to the toolbar are fitted with linkages on both ends for screw adjustment.
To use, you simply turn the screw clockwise to raise the height of the gauge wheel and counterclockwise to lower it.
"It eliminates the possibility of pinching hands or fingers or having a loose part fall on your feet," says inventor Tom Turbes. "It also saves a lot of time, compared with having to loosen bolts, reposition the brackets and then tighten up the bolts again."
Turbes originally designed the system for a wheel boom sprayer. It worked so well he realized it would work on most any equipment. It's particularly handy for swivel-type gauge wheels.
