Unplugger For Tractor Radiators
Called the Screen-O-Matic, it's a revolving screen which attaches to the front of the tractor or combine radiator to keep chaff, straw and other debris from building up on the radiator and causing overheating. Air drawn through by the radiator fan causes the screen to rotate. A baffle on the inside, lower part of the Screen-O-Matic cuts off the suction in that area, causing debris to drop off.
"A North Dakota dealer who just took on our new unplugger says he figures to sell one to every owner of a one-man stacking system in his trade territory," Peter Frieson, manufacturer, told FARM SHOW. "The Screen-O-Matic is also catching on fast with farmers who own pull-type combines, or farmers who do a lot of haying, forage harvesting or stalk chopping."
The new Screen-O-Matic radiator screen sells for $162. An attachment which adapts it to most makes of tractors sells for $30 to $49, depending on make and model of tractor.
