This is the process of changing the factory tires on our sprayer over to a tracked system. The project took a little over three days to complete. One day to prep all the components and ready the sprayer, and two days to install the tracks and test the sprayer. Not shown in the video is the process of swapping out the factory steering cylinders for slightly smaller versions from the track manufacturer. Special thanks to the Ohio State FABE team that helped with the conversion.

The Molly Caren Ag Center is a 2100-acre facility that is home to the Farm Science Review each September. The facility has a 67-acre conservation area for agriculture and natural resource meetings. Along with the FSR show site and conservation area, there are 1400 acres of production agriculture of corn, and soybeans.
The Farm Science Review is the premier outdoor agricultural education and industry exposition. Each September over 700 exhibitors and 115,000+ attendees visit the show to learn about the latest in agriculture from both university and industry experts. The show features live equipment field demos including corn and soybean harvest, tillage, tile installation and many others. Educational talks and seminars range from livestock production, wildlife and woodland habitat, to turf grass and row crop production. Both exhibitors and attendees find value in this show. If you’re business is agriculture, our business is you.
