By now, you’ve probably noticed my fondness for products which solve a specific problem today, and can also be extended to solve additional problems either today or in the future. The Edge Tamer ‘system’ as I’ll refer to it here is just such a solution.
The primary purpose and driving force for you to purchase the Edge Tamer is its simple and cost effective solution to snow removal. The Edge Tamers fit onto the cutting edge of tractor (or skid steer) mounted front loader. The Edge Tamers will fit any subcompact/compact or even larger front end loaders. This video (shot in the summer) shows how the Edge Tamers prevent the loader from gouging into the suburban sod. As we were testing, the loader even started picking up leaves! Obviously, the Edge Tamers are not marketed as a leaf collection system, but hey, I could think of worse ways to attempt leaf collection! …like a hand-held yard rake!!
When (if?) we get some snow, we’ll get some video with the Edge Tamers for their primary use. Who knows, we may clear our entire back yard!
Edge Tamers are offered in 3″, 4″, and now 6″ widths. For sub-compact tractors, two of the 3″ will work fine. For wider buckets, you may want to consider addind an Edge Tamer in the middle. For heavier buckets, or situations where the ground under the snow is extra soft/muddy, you may want the wider version. For example, we are planning to use the 6″ version on my dad’s Case 580 backhoe.
Less than $100 (with the TTWT 5% off coupon code) provides an effective snow removal solution for your compact tractor. However, this is not the end of the Edge Tamer story.
Pallet forks are probably the most versatile front end loader attachment available. You can use them for LOTS different purposes, many of which have nothing to do with a pallet. If you don’t own a set, I would recommend you consider doing so. However, if you have a pin-on bucket, or you simply cannot afford a set of forks, the Edge Tamer system provides a suitable alternative. The Edge Extender can handle posts, logs, brush, and many other situation where the loader bucket will not quite do the job. The amazing thing is that a pair of these is only a $30 addition to your set of Edge Tamers.
Trash Can Carrier (No more excuses)
I’m always coming up with an excuse why I can’t take out the trash. I’m busy with this or that, eating a cheeseburger, etc! I refer to the Trash Tamer as the ‘no more excuses’ attachment. Now, when the trash needs to be taken out, I can use my tractor! Maybe that will give me some more motivation?
The Trash Tamer attaches to the Edge Tamer, completing the ‘system’ as I have described it. You can carry 2 or maybe even 3 trash cans at once with the front of your bucket. This solution makes it easy to ‘scoop up’ your trash cans for the journey to the road. Ok, my journey is only about 80′, but I suspect you don’t live in the confines of suburbia!
The Edge Tamer System is quite a cost effective solution to several problems we face around the yard each day. Due to the low cost, it is a great gift idea. I highly recommend getting a set of these for yourself, or the tractor lover in your life.
