continues to diversify their Worksite Pro attachment line-up and is doing so with the addition of 8 new models. These attachments include two silage defacers (AD7 and AD11), five bale spears (AB21, AB31, AB32, AB42 and AB43), a bale hugger (AH80) and an angle-tatch (AT14). All attachments are compatible with John Deere skid steers, compact track loaders and compact wheel loaders that are equipped with a skid steer style Quick-Tatch coupler, and most competitive models.
First up, the new AD7 and AD11 silage defacers will help remove and loosen haylage and silage from bunkers, while maintaining a smooth, compacted bunker. The tool pierces, separates and rakes without cutting or reducing the size of the silage, helping to ensure complete blending. The open design of the silage provides excellent operator visibility, while adjustable guides allow a deeper cut up to three inches.
Next up, John Deere's five new bale spear attachments, the AB21, AB31, AB32, AB42 and AB43, shown at the top of the article, are designed to help farmers load, carry, and stack very large bales of up to 4,000 pounds. Offering optimal rigidity and capacity, these new spears are available in three different configurations of single, dual and triple to help match numerous bale handling sizes.
The new John Deere AH80 bale hugger, shown below, is designed to provide a tighter grip for stacking and loading, but still has the lift capacity for large bales. The round tubing provides maximum durability while preventing damage to wrapped bale coverings. With a maximum load of 2,400 pounds of round or rectangular bales, the bale hugger provides constant pressure that eliminates the risk of dropping the bales.
The angle-tatch, AT14, shown below, allows attachments to tilt up to 14 degrees to the left or right.
