Power Wing Bucket For Front End Loaders
A new "power wing" bucket equipped with 2-ft. long, independently controlled wings on each side increases bucket loading speed 50% and lets you do jobs you couldn't handle with a conventional bucket, according to Henke Mfg., Waverly, Iowa.
Each wing is independently powered by a 10-in. hydraulic cylinder controlled from the cab. The bucket, available in 4, 6, 7, and 8-ft. widths, quick taches to the loader.
"Depending on wing position the bucket can be used as a V-plow, scraper, or close quarter cleanup tool," says Arnold Freund, director of sales and marketing. "The independent wing control lets you maneuver the bucket into close quarters such as free stalls and around feed bunks and hog pens. It works great for handling materials like fertilizer, snow, and manure and for scooping up broken round bales in the field where you can squeeze the open wings around the loose hay. By mounting a bale spear in each wing you can also use it to move round bales."
The four models range in price from $1,800 to $3,600.
