Worksaver Offers New Pallet Forks for Compact Tractors

New pallet forks for compact tractors (up to 40 hp) are available from Worksaver, Inc. These compact pallet forks incorporate many of the same features found on larger Worksaver units and utilize Class I forks (1-inch-by-3.5-inch-by-42-inch) rated at 2,000 pounds for optimal lifting capacity. Spring-loaded latches allow the operator to move the forks along the notched rails for easy spacing adjustment.

Three models are available. The SSPF-242 offers an integrated design with the universal skid steer attaching system; JDPF-2000 is available for John Deere 200/300 series loaders; and FLPF-2000 (a replacement for the ULF-2046) accepts Worksaver interfacing brackets to fit most compact loaders.

Keeping an Eye on Soil Moisture

Onset Computer Corp. has expanded its line of research-grade soil monitoring solutions with the new 10HS Soil Moisture Smart Sensor. The 10HS sensor measures soil moisture over a large volume of soil to provide a more accurate picture of average soil moisture in a given area. Its plug-and-play design reduces deployment time; users can plug the sensor into an Onset HOBO U30 or H21 Weather Station and begin monitoring without wiring or programming.

Users have a choice as to how they access their soil measurement data: direct data offload in the field using a HOBO data shuttle or laptop computer, or remotely accessing the data over the Internet via cellular, Wi-Fi or Ethernet communications.
