The Retriever Self-Loading Trailer Makes Loading Simple

Farming involves making the most of short windows of opportunity. Sometimes missed hours can translate into missed days at harvest time. That’s why time is of the essence when it comes to any job on the farm. A long drive back to the shop in a combine to switch headers can eat up a lot of that precious time. A product like the Retriever Self-Loading Trailer can save you that long slow jog back to the home quarter.

While it doesn’t actually load itself, it does reduce loading to a safe, portable and efficient one man show. Dave Benson of Bestway Incorporated gave me a look at the Retriever trailer in action.
