Rotary Disc Scraper For Max-Emerge Planters
"Our Max-Emerge scrapers have a single scraper wheel that bolts where Deere's own scraper would attach. They'll outlast Deere's heavy-duty optional scrapers. They don't wear a groove in the disc because they rotate. Deere actually knows as much as we do about them since they've bought a number of them," explains Bowerman.
Each scraper unit consists of a 3 1/4 in. dia. wheel which is stamped out of steel and case hardened. Spring tension holds the scraper wheel tight against the disc so it turns as the disc turns. As the small scraper wheel wears thin, it can be taken out and a new one installed in a matter of minutes.
Bowerman also makes the rotating disc scraper in pairs to fit grain drills. "Our scraper will outlast 3 to 4 conventional scrapers and allow you to plant in soil conditions too tough for regular scrapers to handle," says Bowerman.
