Full Vision Rear View Tractor Mirror"We think it's the first rear view tractor mirror that truly gives full rear vision," says Harvey Waliczek, Palatine, Ill., about his new "full vision" rear tractor mirror that's designed to eliminate neck and back strain caused by constantly turning around when operating field equipment.
"Unlike other convex mirrors, this mirror is crystal clear. It's only slightly convex so the natural eye can't detect the slight distortion," notes Waliczek.
In addition to the wide viewing angle, the mirror is mounted on a sliding mounting bracket that lets you move the mirror as much as 10 in. back and forth, and 10 in. up and down, to position it where needed. When you don't need to see out the rear, the mirror folds neatly out of the way up against the ceiling of the cab.
"Once a farmer gets used to looking in the mirror rather than turning around, it makes plowing, disking, cultivating and other chores much more enjoyable. One farmer told us his aging father can now plow longer because he doesn't get a stiff neck anymore," says Waliczek.
The mirror has a universal mounting bracket that fits most tractor cabs. It sells for $44.95, plus $4 shipping.
