Zippered Shrink Wrap Great Way To Store Tractors,Combines
You may have read recently about how to wrap tractors, combines, and other equipment in plastic shrink wrap. But what didn't get reported is that you can put zippers in the custom-molded covers so they can be re-used.
The "shrink wrap" film consists of three layers. Only the outer .5 mm.- thick layer shrinks with a heat gun. The inner layers provide a heavier protective barrier.
The material is available in rolls from 123-in. to 30-ft. wide to cover any implement, from the smallest garden tractor up to the biggest combine.
Sells for 90 to 95 cents per sq. yd. so the cost of covering even the biggest tractor or combine is about $150, according to the company. Zippers cost extra - 40 to 50 cents per ft. Takes 5 to 10 minutes to "shrink wrap" implements with heat gun.
