Affordable Drill Transport System
"Response from the more than 100 farmers who've field tested it, has been tremendous," says Allen Andre, president of Apollo Distributing Corp., Bismarck, N. Dak., of the company's new "affordable" system for hitching 2, 3 or 4 drills together.
The new transport system is unique in that it raises and lowers manually. A modified hi-lift jack is simply fitted to a lift leg at each wheel to raise the drills for transport. It takes about 1 min. at each wheel and saves several thousand dollars over all-hydraulic automatic systems, says Andre.
"It's primarily designed for 2 to 4 drills. Anyone with more drills will probably invest in a hydraulic system. So far as we know, it's the most inexpensive drill hitch available and the major manufacturers don't offer a workable system for 2 drills," Andre points out.
The Apollo system, which becomes a permanent part of the drills, is designed for nearly all makes of drills in any widths or multiples. It lets the operator switch from field to road position in a few minutes.
Comes complete with end tow hitch and 9.52 by 15 implement tires. A 2-drill model sells for $2,250. The folding field position hitch is extra.
