With the trend to Controlled traffic farming (CTF) to reduce production costs and increase yields many growers have also found a way to combat excessive soil compaction damage.
The severe effects from heavy machines extending deeper into the soil profile for growers and contractors and across numerous tracks is now being beaten by converting to a wider profile pass that also comes with fewer headacres.
The benefit is few compaction tracks with much more crop under growth.
One of the big challenges for growers wanting to make the switch to a wider profile, has been where to source a reliable conversion product.
Pioneer growers making the wider track conversion switch found when it comes to modifying the track width of your machine, it pays to get the right advice from the start.
That’s where local engineering company C&C Machining stepped up with its long proven, 25 years, Widetract product range.
With growers adopting Controlled Traffic Farming as a way to increase yields and reduce running costs. Widetract products have been designed to assist with converting existing equipment to extended track widths for CTF.
Widetract wheel spacers offer growers the most affordable entry into CTF. They are built to a high standard and are well designed with CNC machined flanges and easy-access holes with a tough powder coat finish.
And the Widetract system is able to give growers the ability to convert their equipment to wider track spacing without the many downsides of previous generation wheel spacers.
For those that want to step it up a notch, Widetract’s current product line now offers engineered axle extensions for nearly every type of tractor, and is far in advance of previous wheel spacers. In fact, the current axle extensions Widetract offers for a wider profiles came about as a result of C&C Machining Engineering’s 25 years of experience making wheel spacers and custom axles.
As systems advanced, growers became impatient with the issues connected with existing wheel spacers and demanded an alternative. This is where the advanced Widetract axle extensions product line sits today.
Recently, Widetract also expanded its range of products to include extended toolbars and walkway platforms on a 4m wide John Deere CP690 and a 4m wide John Deere 8000 Series ILS tractor
C&C Engineering can supply advanced designed beam axle extensions for nearly every type of tractor. And these Widetract engineered axle extensions will save your tractor from expensive maintenance and downtime when compared to previous generation wheel spacers.
