Strut-Style Air Seeder Attachments
"The difference between our strut-style depth control air seeding system is that we've put the pivot point, seed boot and tube and packer wheel into one compact unit that's no more than 18 in. long from the back of the shank to the back of the wheels," says Sherwin Petersen about his new packer wheel depth control system for air seeders.
Called the Buffalo Seeding System, the unit's a vertical strut mounting just behind the cultivator shank. Because it only allows packer wheels to move up and down, the wheel is always the same distance behind the shovel and seed boot. Pressure on single wheel models can be adjusted easily by adding a shim to increase tension on the coil spring; on dual wheel models there are three different settings.
Options include tire size - 4 by 12 in., 2 by 13 in. and 3 by 14 in. - spring size, and shank spacing.
Single wheel unit sells for $210 (Canadian), dual for $245, and dual chute unit for both seed and fertilizer for $290.
