Add On Planter Sweep
New add-on sweep is an inexpensive way to clear clods and trash away from in front of row units on row crop planters.
It consists simply of a 6-in. wide sweep that bolts to the frame just ahead of each row unit. The mounting shank can be easily adjusted up or down to adapt to existing conditions.
"It gently moves crop residue, clods and trash off to the side without throwing clods or rocks the way conventional disc openers do, protecting drive chains, wheels and other moving parts. It leaves a moist soil surface and a clean path to plant in for better seed spacing and placement," says the manufacturer.
Attaches without modification to Deere Max-Emerge, IH 800 and 900, and White Seed Boss planters. Sells for $65 per row.
