Tandem Implement Connector
Gregory Manufacturing, of Lewiston, N.C., has purchased manufacturing and marketing rights for a farmer-invented Tandem Implement Connector (TIC) that allows you to pull up to three pieces of equipment in tandem, completing the till-plant-spray operation in one pass.
Although designed primarily for 3 pt. equipment, it can also be used with pull type equipment, or a combination of the two, says Charles Gregory Jr. He adds that the TIC's four rear wheels are adjustable for spacing to accommodate row-crop planters (or comparable width drills) up to 12 rows wide.
Two controls in the tractor cab operate the Gregory TIC. One controls the tillage tools up front; the other operates the planter or drill at the rear.
Between the TIC's front and rear hitches, you can attach up to a 1,000 gal. tank that rolls entirely on the carrier's four wheels for herbicide or fertilizer application. The tank can be replaced with a bin for bulk storage of corn, soybeans, or wheat during the planting operation. "If you use a tank with a divider, you can apply liquid fertilizer and herbicide from the same tank, without having to have any tanks on the tractor," Gregory notes.
The heavy-built rig is slated to retail for right at $12,500, he told FARM SHOW.
