Keeping a farm running smoothly takes a lot of time and hard work, but there are ways to make your job easier. Keep reading to learn about using agriculture equipment attachments to help you on the job.
Why Are Agriculture Equipment Attachments Helpful?
Attachments help you do more with your Cat® equipment, saving you time and money. They allow you to do more with just one machine, which is a big bonus when you don’t own much equipment.
What Are Good Beginner Agriculture Equipment Attachments?
No two farms are exactly alike, but some jobs are common across the board. In the agriculture industry, you’re transporting lots of heavy materials. With a sturdy backboard for support, pallet forks make great starter attachments for transporting heavy loads of feed or harvests from point A to point B with a compact wheel loader.
There are also attachments when it comes to lightweight lifting. Adding a light materials bucket to your skid steer loader or compact track loader can come in handy for carrying lots of low-density topsoil, fertilizer and snow. However, when it comes to moving and stacking baled materials, bale spears and grabs are the way to go.
In addition to transporting materials, you’re also working in the ground with lots of compact soil. Rippers are the go-to addition in this department. Attached to your mini excavator, these tools can cut through dense layers of dirt and rock, helping you yield more crops in rough ground conditions.
