Trouble-Free Acre Counter
Although designed primarily for planters, the counter can be used to count acres on any wheeled machine simply by attaching it to the axle end of any carrier or ground-driven wheel. A counter-balanced weight inside the meter flips around as the wheel turns, driving a set of calibrated gears. It works traveling forward or in reverse.
"We recommend that it be mounted on a ground wheel, or a clutch-activated shaft, so it only meters on actual ground worked," explains Aufdenberg.
The universal meter for use on any machine sells for $55.
