Heavy-Duty Turnbuckle For Blade Plows
Roger Kuntz, K-Tech, Rt. 1, Box 69, Grainfield, Kan. 67737 (ph 785-673-4728): "I used to be service manager at a large farm tillage plant that made blade plows and I often found that the cause of customer complaints would be equipment not properly set up for field use. The key to setting up a blade plow is the turnbuckle. Many older machines are so worn the original turnbuckles cannot be adjusted enough. Also, original turnbuckles often have only 1-in. dia. threads.
  "I decided to solve the problem with a heavy-duty turnbuckle that adjusts 50 percent further and has double the strength. It has a big 1 1/2-in. dia. adjustment screw with right and left threads. It's also fitted with grease zerks to prevent seizing. One man can level a plow easily and quickly.
  "Sells for $70 (including shipping), which is a lot less than the $100 charged by most manufacturers for replacement turnbuckles. A blade plow leveling guide is included."
