28 POTATO GROWER | DECEMBER 2019 Northside Welding, Inc. • (208) 438-5222 • www.northsideweldinginc.com NSW Rollover Plow Northside Welding has now added a rollover reset plow to its manufacturing line. Without trying to reinvent the wheel, Northside has taken the strongest points of each manufacturer and combined them into one plow. The massive three-point comes standard with Category III and IV pins. The main frame is constructed with 8×6×3/8-inch tubing. The rollover stem is a hefty 415/16-inch solid shaft, with 36 inches of bearing surface to roll on. When adjusted to the preferred depth, the wheels easily bolt solid into place with a single bolt. Moving away from the expensive castings, the plow beams are cut from 1½-inch T-1 steel. The frogs are laser-cut from 5/8-inch A-36 steel, resulting in a frog that is more shock-resistant and won't break at the point. The hydraulic reset system uses a nitrogen accumulator for smooth and reliable reset action. The NSW plow uses readily available Case IH-compatible consumables. With models ranging from a five-bottom (in furrow or on land) to an eight-bottom on land, Northside can accommodate just about any size of tractor. The company's most common size, the six-bottom on land, requires a minimum of 250 horsepower; however, 280 horsepower is highly recommended for best results, depending on soil condition and plowing depth. Sunco Farm Equipment • (800) 676-2146 • www.suncofarmequipment.com Sunco Prop The Sunco Prop, introduced in the 1990s with its unique design to make angled reservoirs between crop rows, completely revolutionized reservoir tillage. Being an individual row unit, the Sunco Prop can easily be mounted on any number of row units and on a variety of rippers and cultivators. The angled dikes with angled reservoirs eliminate water erosion and runoff, allowing rain and irrigation water with valuable nutrients to soak in where it falls. Instead of expensive water damage, propping gives growers the benefit of higher yields and more profits. Another significant benefit of the Sunco Prop's angled dike is reduced or eliminated tractor and implement bounce when driving down the rows at harvest. Considering all the advantages and benefits, the Sunco Prop just makes sense on every farm. All Star Manufacturing & Design • (801) 225-4199 • www.allstarmrgllc.com Potato Seed Cutters Over 60 years ago, Eskel Peterson built the first Better Built potato seed cutter. Three generations later, his grandsons Allen and Alex now own and operate All Star Manufacturing. Officially taking over in 2012, Allen and Alex both continue the tradition of building the best potato seed cutters for their customers. All Star's patented sizer, with on-the-go quick-adjust sizing and Better Built tapered aligning rollers, allows for more accuracy when sizing potatoes, while a better pocket to center the potatoes results in less waste and a more accurately cut seed. Pairing All Star's potato seed cutter with its liquid/powder potato seed treater can take the guesswork out of mixing slurry to best treat cut potato seed. Harriston Industries • (701) 248-3286 • www.harriston-mayo.com Clamp Planter Harriston's clamp planter is available in configurations from two to 12 rows. Positive seed clamping provides great seed placement with minimal skips and grabs seed pieces without penetration, helping prevent the spread of disease. With this technology, planting speed is greatly increased. The seed spacing and bowl height adjustments can be made from the cab of the tractor with ease. These planters have a low seed drop height for more exact seed spacing. They are manufactured in the U.S. and provide exceptional quality, reliability and accuracy.
