Bestway

Overview

In the early 1960’s Ed Schick of Clear Lake, Iowa, founded the Bestway Sprayer Company. He thought farmers needed a better sprayer. One that would hold up. He had a reputation for well-built, basic equipment. His prices were a little higher, but a growing number of customers recognized the value.

Later, in 1987 Ed sold Bestway to Cliff Wilson, owner of Ritchie Industries. Both men swore a solemn oath that the principles for which Bestway was built would not be changed. For that reason, when RHS purchased Bestway in 1995, Cliff passed on the mandate Ed had given to him. We take that commitment seriously.

The Retriever Transport Hitch mounts to a tandem axle semi-tractor to tow large agricultural implements. This handy design slides into your fifth wheel via two rackets holding in against truck frame and preventing side to side movement, and converts your semi into a tillage implement transportation unit. This hitch has the ability to hook onto equipment, and also has a dual hitch. It is a multifunction tool and can be raised and lowered for hitching onto farm equipment. There is a self contained power pack, and unit comes with hydraulic lines on top to wing up equipment for travel.
