The new "E-Z Pipe Loader" invented by Nebraska farmer Don Daberkow, of Grand Island, makes it easy for one person to load and unload irrigation pipe.
You just roll the pipe on the loader and let the machine's tooth-equipped chain do the rest. It has nylon teeth that won't mark the pipe and are spaced to handle up to 10-in. dia. pipe. The chain runs slowly in either direction and can be stopped, as needed, allowing you to couple lengths of pipe as they're unloaded off the trailer.
The adjustable height loader attaches to the center of the pipe wagon and swings up against the wagon for road transport. It can be powered hydraulically or electrically, and controlled from the tractor or loader.
