New tools for farmers at this year's Dakota Farm Show


Too much or too little, moisture is always on the minds of farmers. At the Dakota Farm Show in Vermillion, South Dakota, many are finding out how new technology can help them regulate the water in their fields with the help of tiling.

"This is the new design on this plow, it's called Stealth ZD," said Soil-Max's Mark Machart.

Machart says there are many advantages to the new model, specifically how easy it is to use.

"But the biggest advantage that you get with the new design is that it pulls so much easier than every other plow that's out there. So, from our standpoint I can knowingly say and honestly say that this is the easiest pulling plow that's in the industry," said Machart.

Another way technology is helping farms... fixing flats. Farmers can be a long way from home when a tire blows, but a new tool could help put air back in tractor tires.

"We do everything from breaking the bead, to taking the tire off, to putting the tire back on and that's our productline," said Justin Ochoa about the Pneu-Tek tools.

These tools can be used on a wide range of tire sizes.

"I thought it was great. I think it's a good product," said Grady Arens from Crofton, Nebraska. "I like how you can use an impact on their tools and they look well built and they did a great job of displaying that."
