- Reesink Agriculture has expanded its tractor attachment range with two innovative racks from American manufacturer, BigToolRack
Both the Ultimate Rack and the Yard Rack provide a solution to the common frustrations of a lack of cargo space as well as providing organised, secure storage for a compact or sub-compact tractor or utility vehicle in seconds. In a nutshell, they are the Swiss Army Knife of tool carrying attachments.
BigToolRack is a brand born from the concept of a mock-up rack – a framework designed for holding or storing tools securely – that can be attached through the three-point hitch to keep all tools to hand at all times.
Both products are the inventions of Tim Descoteaux, founder of BigToolRack, who wanted to get more out of his tractor after countlessly trekking between sheds and where he was working, so invented the Ultimate Rack. After years of testing and development, this heavy-duty universal tool holder solves all those frustrations.
It includes a large cargo area (with a load capacity of 272kgs and tailgate capacity of 113kgs) and provides space to securely attach tools out of the way of the cargo area. There’s no need to buy a ballast box separately; you can use the counterweight option when moving heavy loads with a loader instead. A trailer hitch feature and telescopic wheel system convert the rack into a roll-away storage system to neatly store your tools in your shed or barn, and just as easily retrieve it and attach it back to the tractor.
The Yard Rack, meanwhile, is mobile storage for compact and sub-compact tractors, lawn tractors, zero-turn mowers, ATVs and utility vehicles. It’s perfect for anyone with limited storage space and comes already assembled for additional convenience. The main frame bar allows for a multitude of tools to be hanged securely while a dropdown hook can carry garden hoses, sprayers and more. It sports a tow hitch bracket, tool holder and gear bag for even more versatility and can dump loads by releasing the top cables while strong buckles keep it firmly in place when traversing between sites. Made of sturdy canvas material, it can be folded up when not in use and neatly stored away.
Steven Haynes, tractor sales manager at Reesink, says of these products: “These two unique attachments solve a common problem many professional and semi-professional gardeners, landscapers, farmers, equestrians and estate managers have had for a long time. They’re all well thought-out and designed to provide great storage solutions for anyone with a tractor, a ride-on mower or an ATV. The products have proved successful in other markets, and we are sure will be well-received here with our customers too.”
Both the Ultimate Rack and the Yard Rack have a range of customisable add-ons and can be used all-year-round. Unlike tow-behind trailers or transport boxes, they can be kept out of the way and won’t become a hindrance by taking up space or being too heavy to manoeuvre. They also have specific hooks and holes for each and every tool, meaning things don’t end up mixed together and are easy to find, take out and put back again without the risk of falling off the rack or getting damaged.
Tim Descoteaux says of the partnership with Reesink Agriculture: “BigToolRack would like to welcome Reesink as our newest distributor. Reesink will service the UK as well as Ireland offering the BigToolRack product line. We continue to grow all around the world, building high-quality innovative products that will save you time with all of your outdoor projects. We’re the world-leading manufacturer of carry-all systems for tractors, mowers, ATVs, UTVs and more.”
Both products clip-on/clip-off and offer a warranty of 12 months against defects for added peace of mind.
