“Furrow Brow” Blades Clean Planter Gauge Wheels
The Furrow Brow blade mounts directly to the gauge wheel arm bolt. However, the blade doesn’t touch the gauge wheel tire, and doesn’t travel with the wheel. Instead, each time the planter is raised, the movement of the tire down and to the rear dislodges any mud or debris that has accumulated behind the blade, so that you start with a clean blade on the next planter pass. And because the blade is perpendicular to the wheel, there’s little chance of material “hairpinning” over the blade and stopping the wheel, says the company.
Bolt tension keeps the brow from turning on the bolt when it encounters mud or debris.
Units are available for most Deere and Kinze planters.
