They Specialize In 3-Pt. And Loader Attachments
Kevin Ranette operates a steel fabrication and repair shop near Moyie Springs, Idaho. He recently sent FARM SHOW photos of several different attachments he builds to make farm work easier.

    “We’re a small company that manufactures and also custom-builds almost any kind of attachment there is, including 3-pt. mounted blades, landscape rakes, cultivators, middle busters, front-end loaders and more,” says Ranette. “We manufacture all our attachments and products to the highest quality possible and make sure our customers are fully satisfied. All our products come with a 90-day warranty, and replacement parts are readily available.

    “We also custom-build various attachments. Customers tell us what they want and how they want it, and we’ll build it. For example, if you want a 6-ft. back blade with hydraulic angling or a tilting frame, we can do that.”

    Here are some of the company’s most popular attachments.

    Tractor landscape rakes -- Ranette builds light to medium duty rakes as well as heavy-duty models. “We build everything in our shop except for the heavy-duty, hardened rake tines. All our rakes are made to stand up to extreme use. They feature 6 angle settings, parking stands and replaceable tines. They’re available in widths from 4 to 8 ft, and we can custom-build any size in between. All rakes are available with standard or heavy- duty tines.”

    Prices for their heavy-duty rakes range from $325 for a 4-ft. model to $500 for a 7-ft. “Standard rakes have mild steel tines and cost $50 less than the same size heavy duty model,” says Ranette.

    Back blades – He says they build their back blades to stand up to a variety of chores. “The blades come with 6 different angle settings, 360 degree rotation, parking stands, replaceable cutting edges, and solid frames with reinforcements everywhere. Prices range from $250 for a 4-ft. model up to $600 for an 8-ft. All of our blades are compatible with hydraulic angling.”

    Front-end loaders – They can custom- build front-end loaders for almost any tractor, big or small. “Standard features include mechanical self leveling and a quick-tach loader frame and quick-tach bucket. Available attachments include pallet forks, snow blades, grapples and more.”

    Prices vary greatly from loader to loader. “On average our loaders sell anywhere from $1,500 for a small standard model to $5,000 for a big, top-of-the-line model loaded with features,” says Ranette. “Contact us for a list of all our products.”
