Drop down brackets are designed for paired 13” wheels and they help maintain a level closing wheel arm assembly in loose soils. Internal Deflector set which reduce build up of mud and residue to ensure fractured soil is placed evenly over seed trench.

Spading Closing wheels move soil toward the seed at planting depth, while lifting and fracturing the surface layer to achieve compaction free closing of the seed trench in wet, hard, or sod conditions. With soil firmed around the seed from each side and the surface layer loosened, crops emerge sooner and planting can be done at the proper depth, even in wetter conditions, without fear of crushed soil above the seed preventing emergence.

Dimple Closing Wheels

Less aggressive than spike closing wheels – works well on high speed planters

BSCW1344D

  • For planters with bolt-on hubs:
    • Deere 1700 series
    • Kinze 3000 and up
    • Harvest International
    • Horsch, White 6000, 8000, and 9000 series
    • others
  • 1/2” thick, heat-treated T-1 wheels, with 20 rounded points
  • CHU44B2 cast hubs with long life PEER® SEEDXTREME™ 40 mm 5203 double row bearing with 6 lip seal
The BSCW1344D, 20 point dimple wheels are a sound choice for producers who plant most of their crops from medium moisture to dry conditions.

The 20 rounded points help this closing system perform well in hard sod conditions plus they frequently out-perform factory closing systems in no-till and minimum till soil conditions.
