Don’t even get off your bike

New for Fieldays 2019 is the Taracarry Plus, a nifty pigtail and reel carrier for quads.

Made by Taragate as a modular system, the Taracarry Plus can be added to and extended as best suits the user.

The base model is a pigtail carrier which sits neatly out of the way at the rear of the machine, but still allows the rear carrier to be used as normal. This easily carries 30 pigtail standards and two reels of fencing wire. 

A second module allows a third reel to be carried with the fitment of an extra bracket. 

A third module, the Sidewinder which carries a fourth reel, fixes to the front carrier of the quad and allows the farmer to put up a fence without getting off the bike.

The unit is made of robust galvanised steel, is easy to attach and remove, carries two to four reels securely depending on the module, and fits most major brands of quad.

Check out the Taracarry Plus at site M36-38 at Fieldays.
