The row builders have become very popular, especially during the early spring months. You should expect shipping to take 2-4 weeks up through April and then 4-8 weeks as the spring planting season is in full swing. This is dependent on the shop being able to keep up with the raw materials, and parts to fill orders with supply chain shortages. If you really want to get one it is probably best to get one on order and be in line as the parts that trickle in go to the backorders and the cycle starts over.

The toolbar will fit a standard 3-Point Cat 1 Hitch, 3/4" pins, or a standard quick hitch with 26 1/2" I.D. (See Diagram Picture). Hillers can be adjusted out on the 60" toolbar as far as the inside wheel width of most tractors. The Hillers can also be adjusted close together to make smaller width hills. Hill height is determined by several factors such as tilling depth, soil, and speed. The faster the row builder has pulled the more dirt it will mound up.
The picture on the bottom shows our new optional Row Opener. It attaches to the back of the toolbar and allows you to hill and open the row in one sweep. You have the option of ordering sweeps from 4"-10" wide. Click Here for more information and to order the Row Opener.
For smaller gardens and compact tractors 12-30 HP, we offer a 14” row builder. Click Here for more information.
A word on Shipping: The toolbar may arrive with scratches. It would be cost-prohibitive or require truck freight at double the cost to ship if they were to be boxed. Shipping is already expensive as it is because of the toolbar length. Sorry to our Canadian customers but for this reason, we do not ship these to Canada. FedEx and UPS now use algorithms that add surcharges for some locations that are not always picked up in the shipping calculator. For the most part, the shipping calculator is accurate but occasionally we find shipping to some of the Western states catches us with surprise shipping rates. If this is the case, we may need to contact the customer for additional shipping.
The toolbar will ship by itself unboxed via FedEx on one truck and the other parts will likely ship on another truck. The row builders are extremely popular, and we have shipped 100s of the toolbars this way for many years. For the most part, they arrive in good condition. You should expect scratches in the paint from pulling on and off trucks, but because they are made of heavy steel, superficial scratches will not interfere with the performance or structural integrity. If you would rather pay to have it truck freighted just send us an email for a shipping quote. The color is IHC Red is carried in most implement and farm stores for a touch-up if needed. The reality is that they will likely be scratched when moving the shanks back and forth. FedEx does not recognize nor reimburse for scratches only if the toolbar is bent which is highly unlikely and has never occurred.
