True Parallel Closing Linkage For Planters
Kris Schaffert came up with his new 4-Link Closer system for row crop planters to solve problems he was having with closing seed trenches on terraces, hills, washouts and other rough planting conditions.
  Schaffert is the son of Paul Schaffert of Schaffert Mfg., premier manufactuer of precision planting add-ons.
  The 4-Link Closer is a true parallel closing system for Deere, Kinze, Case IH, Great Plains and White planters. It has more travel than standard closing wheel systems and, when up and down movement occurs, the 4-Link Closer keeps the pitch of the closing wheels from changing.
  In contrast to standard closing wheel systems, which have a spring under the tail section, the spring is in between the parallel arms. This allows better mobility and puts less up pressure on your row units.
  Can be fitted with a regular V-closing wheel kit, Schaffert’s G2 fertilizer kit, and a dry fertilizer kit. Sells for around $700 per row.
