Folding Carrier for Rotary Hoes
Now you can convert your 3-pt rotary hoe into a pull-type, thanks to a new folding carrier introduced by Progressive Farm Products, Hudson, Ill.
Designed to accommodate all makes of rotaries, it's available in 30 ft. ($3,500), 40 ft. ($5,450) or 60 ft. ($9,900) models that hydraulically fold forward from tractor seat to narrow (13 and 18 ft.) transport widths.
"Our new carrier gets the rotary hoe off the tractor, allowing you to take a wider swath with a smaller tractor. Another key advantage is that two-way hydraulics on the hoe lift allows you to pull up the carrier wheels and hydraulically force the hoe into hard, crusty ground," says Richard Follmer, manufacturer. He says you can use two 15 ft.hoes, or divide one 30 ft. hoe. Or, for more width, you can combine two 20 ft. hoes for a 40 ft. swath, or two 30 ft. hoes to make a 60 ft. wide pull-type rotary that flexes in middle to follow ground contour.
The 40 and 60 ft. carriers use a telescoping tongue for folding. All carriers come with hydraulic cylinders and standard 11 by 15 in. tires. Rotary hoes U-bolt onto the carrier's toolbar.
