    Air Seeder Seed Brake

    The AirGuard Seed Brake developed by Brian Cruson allows farmers to control the air flow without changing the direction of flow of their seed and fertilizer on air seeders. The device which goes onto each airline on a seeder is designed to stop seed and fertilizer from bouncing which helps ensure even emergence and helps prevent seed burn from fertilizer. The unit is designed so that seed doesn’t hit anything and get damaged when passing through it. The Air Guard units can be attached to most air seeders on the market today.

    45-Ton Log Splitter

    If you use fire wood, the log splitter built by Jerry Inkster makes splitting logs for fire wood extremely easy. Inkster built his hydraulically powered splitter to handle big logs and do the job in one pass. The blade is made out of grader blade. He has found the shear blade shatters the end of the wood so well that it dries green wood twice a fast allowing him to burn it within 2 or 3 weeks of splitting it. He cuts up about 20 cords of wood each year to heat his house and shop plus sell some locally.

    6,000 GPM Water Pump

    Henry Raupers of Newdale, Manitoba and his PTO driven auger that can pump up to 6,000 gallons per minute. The system is built to pump slough water often full of debris off of farm land. Because it is an auger style system plugging with foreign debris is not a problem. The unit has pushed water up to 1,000 feet through a hose with an elevation of about 30 feet. It requires 1,000 rpm PTO on about a 40 to 50 horsepower tractor to operate it. At the time of our visit he was selling the pump for around $8000.00 Cdn.
