Keeping the guards straight

Tobin Apparatus has a new solution for bent and broken metal pick-up guards on John Deere round balers and Case IH/New Holland and Agco’s Hesston large square and round machines.

Pick-up bands are also available for Deere forage harvesters and New Holland pull-type forage headers.

The Tobin pick-up guard is half-inch durable poly over a quarter inch of stiff material that holds the circular shape of the guards. The plastic bands are more impact resistant than steel, quieter and don’t wear as quickly when pick-up teeth rub against the guards’ sides.

Canadian Hay and Silage handles the American-made guards in Canada. For more information, contact 403-224-2072 or visit

Dusting it off

Saskatchewan’s REM Enterprises has added a dust collector as an option to its new GrainVac VRX. The cyclone removes dust from the system and allows the operator to collect the discharge or redirect the material away from the operator and truck.
