Self-Cleaning Trash Discs
The row cleaning wheels have a concave shape and are equipped with slanted teeth that brush heavy trash out of the way. One disc is positioned slightly ahead of the other.
"They reduce plugging in heavy trash conditions," says Larry Kuhlmann. "The unique saber tooth design along with the concavity of the discs allows trash to flow out of the seedbed area and releases it in the center of the row without plugging. The depth position dictates how much material is moved and is easily adjusted with an adjustment pin. They can be mounted directly to the planter or on front of the company's Nutrimate II discs designed for placement of starter fertilizer.
Sells for $220 per row including mounting bracket.
