TDS Drive (Mud Hog) at Farm Progress Show

BROOKSTON, IN--(Marketwire - Aug 28, 2012) - Terra Drive Systems (TDS Drive), a leading designer and manufacturer of steerable hydraulic drive systems for on- and off-highway motorized specialty equipment, announces today that it will debut a new application of the legendary Mud Hog product in booth 18N at the 59th Annual Farm Progress Show in Boone, Iowa, August 28-30. Also, in the booth this year, TDS will be displaying their traditional Mud Hog, Stalk Hog, Bale Direct and EZ Trac Products.

Mud Hog is a steerable hydraulic drive axle that is already used worldwide to help combines, cotton pickers and strippers, and sprayers navigate fields and steep inclines with minimal compaction. Compaction is typically the biggest driver in making the farmer money, so it doesn't have to be wet to make money with Mud Hog. TDS Drive will display Mud Hog's new application on a grain cart, promoting how this application of this product will increase yields by decreasing compaction, saving on fuel, and reducing maintenance costs.

TDS Drive will release its new Money Maker Calculator, a free online tool that allows farmers to input specific information about their farm, crops, equipment, and yield, and calculate how quickly they would recoup the money invested in a Mud Hog.
