Add-On Planter Spray Bracket"We made them because the brackets on our Deere planter kept breaking off," says Tim Morris, Jackson, Tenn., inventor-manufacturer of new heavy-built planter spray brackets.
The spray bracket, made from heavy ¥-in. pipe, mounts below the planter box frame. Easy-adjust bolts let you swivel the bracket up and down for height and angle adjustment and then quickly lock it into place. Nozzles mount on a ¢-in. dia. pipe mounted at a right angle to the ¥-in. pipe in such a way that they can be easily centered over the row.
"You can lower the bracket directly over the row for precise herbicide banding or raise it up to broadcast," says Morris, noting that the bracket "should last the life of the planter. Deere's brackets are built so weak you can break them off just by bumping into them while filling planter boxes."
Brackets fit any Deere Max-Emerge or Kinze planter, and IH 800 and 900 air planters. He can also fit Deutz and White planters, and will custom-build them for other makes.
Morris builds a similar bracket for cultivators. The cultivator version consists of two pivoting bracket arms with a rotating nozzle mount for precise chemical application. The dual brackets let you apply chemical both above and below the crop canopy at the same time, precisely directing chemical flow.
Planter brackets sells for $22.50 per row. Cultivator bracket, with two arms per row, sells for $64 per row.
