Mud Scrapers For Deere MaxEmerge Drive Wheels
When you think about putting mud scrapers on planters, you don't usually consider the drive wheels. But Lofquist Welding, Elwood, Neb., says its new mud scraper for Deere Max Emerge planters solves an often overlooked problem.
"Mud that builds up on planter drive gauge wheels can throw off the accuracy of seed population rates," says Steve Lofquist. "With only about 1/2 in. of mud on the wheel you can be planting about 9% fewer seeds per acre without knowing it. The more mud that builds up on the wheel, the worse the problem gets."
The scraper mounts on a steel bracket that bolts to the drive wheel assembly on each side of the wheel. The blade is replaceable and can be moved forward to compensate for wear by loosening the position of two bolts. Fits Deere 7000, 7100, 7200, and 7300 planters.
Sells for $50.
