Back Saver For Loading Cargo Into Pickips
Thanks for the story on our electric winch that automatically raises rolls of net wrap into round balers (Vol. 32, No. 2). The Routledge Back Saver consists of an electric winch that operates off the tractor's battery, and a pair of metal tongs that lift the roll. The tongs bolt onto a center-mounted bracket that's connected to a length of cable. The operator uses a remote controlled switch to lift the roll up into the storage compartment. A round tube bolts onto the side of the baler and is used to store the remote control.
  We now have a new Back Saver for loading cargo into pickups. It lifts and lowers with a winch and folds down out of the way over the wheel well for use with a fifth wheel.
  I'm 82 years old and am looking for someone to buy the patent. You can see a video clip of the unit by going to www.grainews.ca/multimedia/video.asp. (Elgin Routledge, P.O. Box 2339, Virden, Manitoba, Canada R0M 2C0 (ph 204 748-3368; routledg@mts.net)
