Just one look at the Hagie STX10 and you can tell it’s a new design from the company. The STX10 features Hagie’s upfront boom, but even that features a new design. Composite body panels cover the exterior of the machine, directing airflow to the back, where the engine is located. Air is taken in through the top of the hood, preventing the buildup of trash that reduces airflow and keeping the engine cool during late-season applications. The new boom-pivoting design, located under the cab rather than on the boom transom, separates machine movement from the boom. The boom’s new design integrates a routing channel in the upper boom support and reduces the amount of hoses and wires. It is equipped with a 240-hp 6.7-liter Cummins diesel engine and uses a Sauer-Danfoss H1 Series hydrostatic twin pump to supply the power to the full-time four-wheel-drive system. The STX10 is a 1,000-gal. machine with a standard 60/80 boom, optional 60/90 boom and ground clearance of 60". Base price: $180,000. For more information, visit www.hagie.com.
Trailer Lifts Its Own Load
The Bestway Retriever self-loading trailer lifts combine heads and implements onto the trailer bed and then rotates them lengthwise. Using its own hydraulic system, the trailer allows one man to load, move and unload equipment. Axle capacity choices are 16,000 lb. or 20,000 lb., with maximum load length from 36' to 49' depending on the model. The Retriever can also load onto, or unload from, most conventional combine head trailers. Five models are available: two bumper-pull and three gooseneck configurations. Prices start at $23,936 for a 16,000-lb. GVW bumper-pull model and range to $26,936 for a 20,000-lb. GVW gooseneck-hitch model. For more information, visit www.bestway-inc.com.
