TracPacker advantage is all about the elimination of stress in your
To begin the crop growing season you have
filled and packed your pivot tracks with the weight of the tractor giving
you over 15 times the in-track compaction of any other system.
Since the tractor is being driven out in the
field to move the soil into the pivot track it is a no-brainer to use it
to pack the soil into the track. The unique gauge wheel system out front
delivers the proper amount of soil into the track as you travel to allow
for level filled tracks all the time.
The early season benefit of filled level and
well packed pivot tracks is smooth travel with planters, windrowers,
balers, and no wildly bouncing sprayer booms.
The late season benefit of filled and well
packed pivot tracks is shallower pivot tracks.
pivot tracks mean less stress on tires, beams, spans, motors, and
generators. Irrigation systems simply do not work as hard to travel in
shallow tracks as they do in deep tracks.
The season long benefits of using the
TracPacker became evident this spring of 2006 when my father Leo Gillespie
and I replaced the first gearbox ever on a 30 year old Reinke pivot
system. I have been using the TracPacker on my center pivots since
1995, the year I invented it.
Designed, built, and marketed by a farmer,
the TracPacker mission statement is: “Helping farmers protect
farm equipment from damage resulting from rough travel over unfilled or
improperly filled pivot tracks while decreasing operating and maintenance
costs in irrigation systems”.
Save time, labor, and reduce farm equipment
repair cost with the TracPacker.
