Rancher Supply's Middle Buster
Rancher Supply's Middle Buster is designed with care and built with quality materials by skilled workers. Proper assembly, maintenance, and operating practices will help the owner/operator get years of satisfactory service from the implement.
The Middle Buster can be used to plant and dig potatoes, form ridges for other crops, and make drainage ditches. Set your 3-Point depth control to operate the Middle Buster at the desired depth. The deeper you operate, the greater the amount of soil you will plow or “hill up”. In dry or hard soil conditions, you may need to make several passes.
Instructions: Back the tractor up to the implement. Adjust the tractor lift arms so they are wide enough to go over the two lift pins on each side of the implement. Make sure that the two 1/2” x 3-1/2” bolts that connect the 3 pt. mount to the shank of your implement are grade 2 ONLY. The lower bolt is a shear bolt and protects the tractor and the implement in case an obstruction is hit or that the operating conditions are too severe. A grade 2 bolt is a “soft” common hardware bolt.
- It is recommended that ONLY tractors with wide front axles be used with either the Middle Buster.
- Tricycle front wheel arrangements are inherently unstable and can cause rollover accidents. This unit is designed to be pulled by your tractor.
- For proper operation, level the Middle Buster by adjusting the tractor linkage. This will assure that the shank will run straight.
- The tractor 3-Point hydraulic lift system should be set to transfer most of the Middle Buster’s weight and draft to the tractor to maximize traction. There may not be a 3-Point draft control on some tractors. Refer to tractor owner’s manual.
