Front Folding Fuerst Harrow
I have a patent on a folding device for a 40-ft. front-folding Fuerst harrow. It folds up the wings for transport and can be tied into the hydraulic folding system on a disc or field cultivator so it folds up whenever you fold up the leading implement. I've used this folding system for two years and it works great. It has a unique system of stops, push-off arms and support stands that prevent excess strain on the hydraulic system or on the implement frame. Specially-designed floating links al-low plenty of flex for going over terraces or ridges. I'm considering making a do-it-yourself kit but would like to find a manufacturer to take over production. It makes Fuerst chain harrows much easier to use. The design could also be used to fold other implements. (John Shidler, Rt 3, Box 390, Lawrenceville, 11L 62439 ph 618 943-3824)
