Handy Pickup Step
Need a hand stepping into the bed of your pickup? The Step Up design attaches to your truck's 2" receiver (regardless of make, model or year) and provides two step configurations. By pulling the spring-loaded pins, an 8x8 non-slip step swings out from each side of the receiver to form an 8x17 step that helps you step into the pickup bed when the tailgate is open. When the tailgate is closed, a second pull of the pins fans the steps back toward the bumper to provide a step on either side of the hitch. Contact: Tebben Enterprises, 10009 Hwy 7 SE, Clara City, MN 56222; (320) 847-2200;
Let's Do the Twist
The American Twister weed whacker and trimmer replacement line eliminates premature line break-offs, large lengths of string melting together on the spool inside the head, tangled string and a lengthy line reloading process. The American Twister accommodates nearly all brands and models of gas-powered and manual trimmers. The unit can last for up to five hours under normal conditions and three to four hours under extreme conditions. Installation requires less than one minute. The Twister's reflective red color creates a visible cutting swath under most lighting conditions. Contact: American Twister Trimmer Line Company, 312 Monkey Hill Road, Ogdensburg, NY 13669; (888) 935-1414;  
Easy Mixer
The Cement Solution bag mixes ready-mix concrete quick and easy. The reusable bag holds up to an 80-lb. bag of concrete and the water needed to mix it. To use, pour ready-mix concrete into the bag, add the appropriate amount of water (a chart on the bag ensures a correct ratio), close with the hook and cinch strap, then rock the mixture back and forth for 30 to 45 seconds. No tools necessary. Contact: The Cement Solution Company, 1426 W. 29th St., Suite 222, Indianapolis, IN 46208; (877) 251-1203;
Adapted Design
Yetter Manufacturing has adapted its Case New Holland (CNH) compatible Screw Adjust residue manager to accommodate CNH's new planter downpressure system. The new design offers the same precise depth control but includes a smaller knob and lower profile. The residue manager is adjustable in 1⁄16" increments and has a hex-adjust screw that accommodates a 7⁄8" socket wrench for increased speed. The Screw Adjust attaches directly to the faceplate of the planter row unit. Contact: Yetter Manufacturing Company, P.O. Box 358, Colchester, IL 62326; (800) 447-5777;
