Inventor Larry M. Mosbrucker introduced his StopSensor System a 2013 Innovations winner at the Western Canada Farm Progress Show. StopSensor was created to eliminate the need for drivers to repeatedly get in and out of their trailers during loading and unloading or the need for a spotter outside the truck. StopSensor uses a patent pending sensor and special reflectors to detect when trailers are properly aligned for loading or unloading grain. For more information on StopSensor, which is made in New Salem, N.D., call 701-425-2774 or visit www.stopsensor.com.
Unverferth Manufacturing Company, Inc., Kalida, Ohio, has introduced the Perfecta field cultivator models—10, 12 and 14. Each model features: Designed S-tine shanks and shovels to meet specific tillage needs, spring-pressure adjustable leveling bar for the desired soil finish, and baskets, which follow the leveling bar and are equipped with shielded bearings for high-residue environments. The field cultivator allows tilling, leveling and finishing in a single pass. It’s constructed with a four-bar frame with three rows of staggered, high-clearance S-tines for full-width tillage. Residue flow is ensured with an under frame clearance of 20 inches and tine spacing of 18 inches side-to-side and 20 inches front-to-rear, resulting in a 6-inch overall spacing. The cultivator is available with a powder-coat finish of red or green. For more information, see a dealer or visit www.unverferth.com.
The Case IH Ecolo-Tiger 875 disk ripper has tiger points, strong metal blades and a hydraulically controlled double-edge reel to help the ripper handle heavy residue, tough soils and a range of field and weather conditions. Redesigned tiger points run just under hardpan compaction and deliver a lift-twist-roll action to eliminate soil compaction, but with less draft, creating smoother fields and extending point life. The metal blades are coated with an aquant powder finish to provide protection against scratching and paint fading. Other design features are to help let the disk ripper to more efficiently go through the field. For more information, contact a dealer or visit www.caseih.com.
