Toolbox Spotlight

BinMaster's SmartBob TS1 Bin Level Sensor is designed to take fill-level readings of dry bulk solids (e.g., grains, granules, pellets, powders) in bins, tanks, and silos with a weighted sensor probe.

The Nicopress Battery-Powered Wire Rope Splicer allows the user to align and crimp sleeves for securing wire rope without assistance, and requires only one-handed operation. The tool crimps the wire, audibly releasing when the pre-determined pressure is reached. Its jaws rotate 360 degrees for ease of use in confined spaces.

The lightweight, quiet-running PowerNow Battery Powered Chainsaw starts without a pull-cord, needs no warm-up time, and runs only when the trigger is engaged. Its 14-inch cutting bar can handle up to 12-inch-diameter logs with no power fade.

The PowerSharp Chainsaw Sharpener is an attachment that allows one to quickly sharpen the chain without having to remove it from the bar-mount or use a file. As the chain moves through the sharpener, its cutters contact the stone, which hones them to sharpness.

Designed for Category 1 and 2 tractors, the self-contained Hydraulink Air-Over-Hydraulic Top Link is a cylinder with ram that operates utilizing a combination of air pressure and hydraulic fluid. To attach an implement, simply connect the device to the tractor pin, open the valve, pull out the ram and connect it to the implement, then close the valve.

Consisting of two removable, molded-plastic, interlocking hoods and a center roll tarp, the Crary Electric Combine Hopper Cover serves to protect the contents of the combine's grain tank from inclement weather, while allowing for additional tank storage capacity and keeping its interior dry when not in use.
