Handy Mover For Uni-System Attachments
"I'd bought a new New Idea Uni-System but was having problems moving and storing the various attachments after removing them from the power unit. So, I modified a running gear so I can now back under the combine or harvester unit, raise the jacks, and go," says Patrick Herbert, Thamesville, Ont.
With the attachments on the modified wagon, he can quickly put on and remove the attachment from the power unit and back them into a corner of his machine shed.
"I started with an old wagon running gear. On the front, I made a saddle to bolt the combine husker or forage harvester to," says Herbert, explaining that he has a separate running gear for each attachment.
"The saddle is the same height and width as the power unit. Under the rear of the two husker and forage harvesting units, I bolted two frame extensions that extend back about 2 ft. They're held in place with four bolts and rest on the wagon's rear axle," Herbert explains.
"When putting the wagon under a unit, I pull the reach apart, then put the back half of the wagon in from behind the unit, and the front half in from the front of the unit. I then reconnect the reach, raise the jacks and take off."
