Marker Fold Kit For Deere
An Indiana Deere dealer is doing a booming business selling its new marker fold kit for Max-Emerge planters that folds the markers down flat over the top of the planter.
The bolt-on kit consists of a 7 by 7-in. square tube base that attaches to the planter frame in place of the marker hinge. The marker hinge and cylinder simply bolt to the end of the tube. A hydraulic cylinder inside. the tube folds the tube along with the folded-up marker. When in the down position, the tube looks like an extension of the planter toolbar.
"It's an easy-to-install kit that makes it easier to get under trees and other overhead obstacles as well as to get into storage," says company representative Lynn Hufford, noting that you have to cut off a length of the marker equal to the length of the folding base.
Sells for $1,295 and fits all 7000 flex-fold, 7200 and 7300 series planters.
