New hydraulic wing harrow carts

You never have to get off your tractor. GoBob recently introduced a harrow cart with hydraulic wings and extra heavy duty construction. That is not surprising. What is surprising is they are offering them at a price that is in line with manual and lighter constructed harrow carts.

Glen Sparks, manager of GoBob's McCormick tractor division and implement sales, says the lower introductory price for a new product, in this case the "Rhino Rake" enables them to get several units in use quickly. From that point, word of mouth advertising usually makes sales take off.

"Most folks know that if GoBob puts out a product, it is better than similar products on the market" says Sparks. "We are counting on that reputation and the fact that the Rhino Rake is a better harrow."

Sparks went on the elaborate some of the features of the Rhino Rake that make it a superior harrow to most currently in use. Some of those features include an extra long tongue (for dual wheeled tractors) that is constructed of 3- by 5-inch by 1/4-inch rectangular tubing and it has an adjustable coupler. The frame is heavier than any competitor's. More features make for ease of use and maintenance and the overall longevity on the implement. All corners are gusseted top and bottom, corner braces from outside to inside add extra strength. It has a flexible tine bar with rear chain adjustment, 3-inch hydraulic cylinders with 1/2-inch hoses and hose brackets. Grease zerts at all folding points, EZ Lube hubs, radial tires and transport safety chains round out some of these features.

After a certain amount of these carts are sold at the introductory price, they will then be available to all GoBob Red Rhino hay trailer dealers for distribution at regular prices, explains Sparks. Sounds like now is a good time to get a great piece of equipment at a great price. GoBob can be reached at 1-877-851-2365 or by visiting their website at www.gobobpipe.com.
