The V-Wing Clod Pusher is a parallel linkage implement.  The V-Wing Clod Pusher is used to prepare the seed bed for proper depth, it removes clods, and it helps to optimize correct moisture content.  The V-Wing also prevents the planter from diving in and out. The HCL Personnel Carrier safely transports crew members in and out of the field.  The 3- point design, with an opposing double lip hitch, enables the unit to be placed between a tractor and an implement, typically a sprinkler trailer.  The Personnel Carrier is also equipped with latching doors and seat belts. HCL’s Border Roller & Harrow effectively buries that broadcasted seed which falls onto borders.  The front rollers pivot with respect to the longitudinal axis to hug the sides of the border while the rear roller pivots perpendicular to the longitudinal axis to follow the top of the border.  The Border Roller is heavily built, and is equipped with: 12” ID x 16” OD ductile iron roller rings, heavy duty square tubing, a 72” curved harrow, and 1 1/2” bearings.  Please contact us for pricing and availability. Our heavy duty implement carrier has the capacity to haul 24 ft. long pieces of equipment. If you are in need of a service trailer HCL is here to help.  We build custom service trailers and trucks.  Please contact us with your specifications and we will promptly quote you a price. The HCL row crop seed bed capper protects your germinating seeds from the elements.  By building up a protective cap above a newly planted seed, the HCL capper ensures that your planting efforts are not thwarted by inclement weather.  Shortly after the seed sprouts, emergence is facilitated by removing the excess soil with the use of a HCL decapper.  In the picture on the right, during decapping, notice how the protective cap has locked moisture into the seedbed.
