Peterson Drive For Crustbuster Drills
Instead of driving their Crustbuster fold-type drill off the press wheels as it was designed, Harley Peterson and his son devised a way to drive it off the gauge wheels. It worked so well they had the idea patented and now have it in commercial production at Peterson Enterprises, Sauna, Kan.
"Planting is consistent since there's no slippage regardless of ground conditions," explains Harley. The Peterson drive has a ball type clutch which is disengaged when lifting the drill out of the ground. Planting rates can be varied by the use of various sprockets. There is one chain from the wheel to the drive, and one on the opposite end of the shaft to the drill box. There is one mechanism on each wing and a spider gear which runs the center box from the right drive.
