May 15, 2015 – Ideal Polymer Solutions’ back flow preventer blocks the reversal of water flow in a drainage system, eliminating backup when water rises above the outlet.
Aug. 11, 2014, Blenheim, ON – The Water Control Structure from Just Pipe & Fittings Inc. is meant to allow the owner to control the height of the water table according to their needs. Installed with systematic or subsurface drainage, or retrofitted to an existing system, the structure is meant to benefit agricultural and wetland applications by bringing ground water closer to root systems and holding water and fertilizer in a field longer. When used in conjunction with an irrigation system, the Water Control Structure serves as an economic approach to conserving water by increasing the efficiency of the irrigation. The Water Control Structure can increase crop yield and improve water quality by reducing the annual nitrrate and phosphorous discharge rate by up to 75 per cent, according to a company press release.
July 14, 2014 – OptiSurface land forming design software uses three different design models to accomplish the customer’s drainage or irrigation goals. The one-way design model is designed for those who would like all their water to irrigate or drain in a predetermined single heading. The two-way design model is designed for situations when it is necessary to drain/irrigate off of both sides of a ridge/crown or irrigate/drain both sides of a field towards a waterway or ditch. The four-way design model is designed for situations the customer would like to get the water off the field in any and all directions, while still having the ability to pick and choose where the water should drain. OptiSurface accomplishes these design models using the patented technology of Infinitely Variable Grades (IVG) to optimize the surface while reducing the cost of earthmoving and topsoil disturbance.
June 26, 2014 – The new Carry All Fixed Blade with Walking Tandem (CFB-WT) by Industrial Manufacturing Corporation (IMC) was introduced at the World Ag Expo in Tulare, CA, in February. The scraper has a gate allowing it to transport material. It has a reinforced frame, tongue, and carriage, which are designed to comply with high-horsepower tractors and heavier load capacities. The bowl pivots while the blade remains in a fixed position. This fixed blade hinge design controls the blade height, allowing for precision control. The need for the walking tandem comes in when the contractor is in the final “finishing stages” of his project. A walking tandem helps to eliminate bounce and reduce the duck walking, allowing for better accuracy and control.
May 29, 2014 – The Maverick Tile Finder was designed to be a simple, mobile, and power-free way to locate existing tile lines. The user can insert the 3/8 fiberglass/plastic composite rod up a drainage tile, water or sewer line and connect the utility locator to it. The rod has a copper wire inside of it that transmits the signal up the line. The locator will then reveal the location and depth of the tile. The rod has a length of 650 feet and the locator can read depths of up to 15 feet. The locator that is supplied with the unit can locate other utilities as well. The reel weighs 90 pounds and has a rewind crank system to aid in recoiling the cable. An optional Reese receiver platform can be mounted to a pick-up or UTV for added portability.
May 21, 2014 – Wolfe Equipment has added new upgrades to the 540 drainage plow. The lift and attitude cylinders are now seven inches in diameter, increasing capacity by 30 per cent, and the two six-inch grading cylinders have been replaced with one 10-inch grading cylinder, increasing capacity by 15 per cent. Batteries in the machine were increased from two to four, taking the machine from 2800 cold crank amps to 5680. The back step was modified to angle away from the mole and reduce the likelihood of damage by the dirt berm. The oscillating pins are now locked in from the front side, making for easy removal and allowing the pins to stay in place under the machine in the unlock position so that they do not need to be removed. The auxiliary pumps and valves were reconfigured so that both pumps feed a single valve bank, making for a much more efficient use of oil and better performance at low RPM.
May 14, 2014 – The Homburg Hurricane received an upgrade in 2014. The drain cleaner features three hydraulic motors, four cylinders and a five-way valve. Its construction features an automatic folding function, and the Homburg Dynamic Drive protection system prevents slipping of the drive rollers. The Hurricane was given a new control unit in 2014. The joysticks have been replaced with push buttons. The remote controls all hydraulic functions and the five-cylinder piston diaphragm pump is accessible in the open frame. Behind it is the electric water valve. The 10-metre long suction hose includes a hose reel, and the standard hose guide works mechanically through a chain drive. Above it is the optional working light.
