Old Tire Sweep
A French manufacturer has found a new way to put old tires to use.
Comet, headquartered in Warluis, cuts old truck tires in half and mounts them on free-wheeling, angled metal discs. Angle of "attack" can be adjusted with a turnbuckle control. Both 2 and 3-tire models are available.
The company says one big advantage of the tire rake is that there are no metal parts in contact with the ground to break off. The tires are also gentler with hay than metal rakes and the rake can be used on hard surfaces. They might be used to rake leaves into windrows for baling, for instance. When the tires wear down they can be easily replaced.
