Tye Co Introduces New Folding Drills
The new drill also features a new independent hydraulic drive powered by a pump driven by a gauge wheel mounted on the forward drill.
Because the hydraulics are independent of the powering tractor, the company says there will be no variations in operation as the tractor speeds up or slows down.
The new transport system, designed for drills 30 and 40 ft. wide, features a 7 by 7 in. structural tube frame. The 40-ft. fully-equipped model is 36 ft. long, 5 ft. high and weighs 10,000 lbs. The drill folds to a 12 1/2-ft. transport width while standing in place.
"The hinges on this drill are as heavy as hinges on articulating 4-wheel drive tractors. When a drill gets into mud or heavy soil conditions, it needs to be extremely strong to null out without bending or stressing," says Joe Rogers, Tye sales manager.
The new 30-ft. drill sells for $25,000 and the 40-ft. version for $28,000.
