Pasture Scraper made from Used Tires
"When going over pastures to level out cow pies, gopher mounds and
other materials, our tire scraper doesn't pull up rocks, which is a key advantage we have over chain type harrows," a spokesman told FARM SHOW.
Individual tires, cut in half horizontally, are about 3.5 ft. in dia. Vliebo manufactures an 11-tire model with fold-up wings (21-ft. working width) and a 7-tire model (14-ft. working width) which also folds. In Holland, the company supplies the used steel belted tires, which are virtually impossible to cut in half without special equipment, the manufacturer points out.
