Heavily industrialized farming practices will more than likely require spring loaded gate latches, gate catches, as well as post pullers too. Of course, it all depends on the kind of farming practice being driven. Speaking of which, a majority of commercial farmers will more than likely be counting on a consistent bale spear tractor supply.
The bale spears all need to be of the best quality possible. There must be variety as well. Different bale spear diameters are the order of the day, not forgetting the different spear lengths and installation sleeves. There are straight sleeves with cross bolts and then there are tapered sleeves that have a nut on the actual spear. The straight sleeve comes recommended. This is because the nut at the back of the tapered sleeve is able to work itself loose if it hasn’t been torqued down correctly.
Spears will be interchanged for versatility. A different spear length for different types of hay bales. Spears have been tapered and fluted to allow for easy spear insertions and removals. The fluted spear is I beam shaped for added strength and a streamlined design. Spears must be guaranteed for a set period of time. For the guarantee to check out, the farmer and his staff should only be using the bale spears for its specified purposes.
Spring loaded corral gate latches are economical to use. They are reliable items and are easy to install. Large corral gate latches will be used for a variety of gates. These gates are being used in stock yard gates as well. The gate catches are necessary in order for latches to catch and hold the gate shut.
Time to go shopping then. That is to say that you are a first-time farmer.
