Tuthill Drive Systems Debuts New Stalk Hog at National Farm Machinery Show, February 16 - 19, 2011

Visitors to Booth 428H & I at the National Farm Machinery Show 2011 in Louisville, Kentucky Will Discover How to Extend the Life of Machinery Tires With the New Stalk Hog by Tuthill Drive Systems

BROOKSTON, IN--(Marketwire - February 14, 2011) - Tuthill Drive Systems, a division of Tuthill Corporation today announced the introduction of a new product designed to protect the tires of heavy machinery such as combines, grain carts and semi-trucks. Stalk Hog will extend the life of valuable tires and save frequent expensive tire replacements.

Tuthill Drive Systems has the answer to the increasing issue of wear and tear on machinery tires caused by the tougher stalks of today's corn hybrids left in the ground after harvesting. This machine cuts down on the damage caused to tires and the company will be attending the National Farm Machinery Show in Louisville on February 16 - 19, 2011 to show off their latest product -- Stalk Hog

This strong and durable piece of machinery is quickly installed onto the crop head and flattens the stalks of corn, soybeans, sunflower, canola, and other such crops, before the tires hit the tough and sharp stubble tips. The Stalk Hog not only saves tires, but it promotes faster decomposition of the stalks because of the way it flattens and spreads out the stalks.

As well as lowering replacement costs for tires, Stalk Hog is:

  • Quick and easy to install;
  • Built with heavy duty springs, which maintain even and constant downward pressure on the stalk;
  • Low on maintenance requirements because of its simple design;
  • Constructed of durable metal for a long life; and
  • Protects tires on tractors, grain carts, semi trucks and any equipment used in the field.
