Ramp and bevel door from Jet Co.
Jet Company has added a patented Ramp and Bevel Door design to its line of grain trailers. The new design uses the weight of the load to help open the trailer door. The load initiates the movement of the door down the ramp at the end of the frame. As the load flows through the door opening, it pushes against the beveled edge on the leading edge of the door to help the door move easily. The door rides on self-cleaning, self-lubricating, low-maintenance poly rollers and is tightly sealed to prevent leaks.

The RMB1445 fits tractors as small as 45 hp that weigh a minimum of 4,450 lbs. The largest of the three models, the RMB1865, requires only a 65-hp tractor weighing at least 7,700 lbs.

Simcro vaccination syringes
Simcro syringes promote safety and cut the risk of accidental self-injection while helping to prevent spilling or delivery of inaccurate doses of vaccine. The syringes come in two distinct types: STF and STV. With the STF style, the operator pushes an F-shaped handle in order to inject the animal. The STV models are pistol-style injectors; the operator squeezes a V-shaped handle for injection. Both models are durable, easy to clean, and come in a variety of sizes.

Planter Pro from Ag Focus
Planter Pro from Ag Focus automatically adjusts row cleaners for better residue clearing during planting. Planter Pro is attached to the faceplate or mounting area of the planter unit. Residue is first cut by a coulter and then swept aside by a pair of row cleaners positioned just ahead of the gauge wheels. These wheels are pulled with independent suspension. Row cleaners follow the soil terrain with spring-coil tension on each pivoting arm.
Planter Pro is designed for use with John Deere, Kinze and Case IH 1200 series planters. For more information, visit Booth 401I in the North Wing at the show. Or contact Ag Focus at 309/365-2771 or www.agfocus.com
