Front-mount Power Barrows
When moving loads UP steep hills, the design of this class of implement makes them the best choice. Since they are used in the Front-PTO mode, when going uphill, the weight of the load is partially shifted back onto the tractor (driving) wheels, and traction and control are maximized. TWO choices, depending on your budget:
PowerBarrow™ – This nifty implement, used in the Front-PTO mode, makes a walk-behind tractor into a small power wheelbarrow with heavy-duty swiveling 12” caster wheels on the front for steering. Very maneuverable and convenient. Capacity 300 lbs., 5 cubic feet (heaped), dumps to front.
FITS: All of our walk-behind tractors, and can be fitted with a quick-coupling flange to fit current BCS or Grillo standard quick-coupling systems. Counterweight-bars also available (to make empty barrow effectively counterbalance heavier engines, such as diesels).
This model is not cheap, but I can say that every customer that has purchased one of these from us (always for very steep terrain) LOVES it. Equipped with male quick-coupling built in (tractor must be equipped with female quick-coupling) and front wheel parking brakes. 10 cubic foot capacity (heaped); 1000 lb. weight capacity.
NOTE REGARDING SHIPPING: To save our customers money and to reduce the chances of damage in transit (fully assembled, they are so large, they would cost considerably more to ship), this model is shipped not-quite-fully assembled …the steering control bar needs to be installed (2 bolts).
