The Precision Manufacturing Pallet Fork Add-A-Grapple is easy to get on and off and holds brush, limbs and logs. Two fork positions are available. The outer position allows clamping against the forks. The inner position will allow the grapple to bypass the forks by 6 in. to clamp down on a smaller load. To put the unit on, you just slide the forks into a pair of tubes, insert the locking rods behind the forks to prevent the unit from sliding off when tipping downward, tighten the clamps to keep the unit stable during clamping, and plug in the hydraulic hoses.

Kinze announces a new series of grain carts to replace the 50 series for 2012. The four new grain carts are the 900, 1100, 1300 and 1500. The new carts feature an externally mounted, forward-angled corner auger that pivots up to 10 degrees, side-topside, for maximum visibility and reach. The externally mounted auger allows for superior grain cleanout inside the cart, and the pivoting feature allows for increased adjustability. The 900 has a 20-in. vertical auger and a 17-in. horizontal auger, allowing it to achieve unloading rates of up to 500 bu./min. The 1100, 1300 and 1500 have a 22-in. vertical auger and a 20-in. horizontal auger to achieve unloading rates of up to 750 bu./min. The four new grain cart models have capacities of 900, 1,100, 1,300 and 1,500 bushels. All models will have a two-year warranty from the date of retail sale.
