Solar Powered Water Trough
"You can put it anywhere. Works even on cloudy days," says Leny Heebink, of Farm Shop Import, about the company's new solar-powered water trough.
The waterer is designed to pull water out of shallow ditches or hard-to-reach rivers and streams. It's got a floating pump that's powered by a pair of 12-volt batteries mounted at the front of the trough. The batteries are recharged by a panel of solar cells on a metal post. The trough is heavy plastic. Waterer can also be used to pull water out of a well if fitted with a different kind of pump. Sells for $1,800.
