Tire-Mounted Warning Reflectors
Oncoming traffic can judge the width of your tractor or combine with these new reflector warning lights that attach to wheel rims.
Inventor David Rausch, a Ft. Atkinson, Iowa, farmer, won a prize for the innovative new safety lights in Successful Farming's recent Edisons of Agriculture contest.
The lights attach to rims with a 1 by 6-in. strap steel clamp that hammers into the rim. Brackets mount flush with tires so they're less likely to break off or pick up residue in the field.
As tires rotate and reflectors catch lights from oncoming traffic, they create a pulsating strobe-light effect that's easily visible from the front and back.
Rausch, who's looking for a manufacturer, hopes eventually to market his "Width Lights" for around $5 apiece.
