Connors Junction Feedlot's 'T-Grab'

What's the issue/challenge?

Shifting tyres to silage pits by hand is labour intensive, dirty and time consuming work. With a limited work force and time a precious commodity, we needed a better method of getting tyres onto the pit for distribution.


How does the innovation/idea work?

Fitted to an excavator, the T-Grab collects, holds and transfers tyres from the tyre stockpile across to the pit simply and efficiently. Tyres only need to be handled during placement. Watch the T-Grab in action below!


Cost of Innovation:

$600

The winning innovation will be selected ‘by popular vote’ and announced during SmartBeef23.
