Tungsten Scraper For Deere, Kinze
"After a season of use they still look like new," says Merrill Swenson of Air Design, manufacturer of new disc scrapers with a tungsten carbide cutting edge for Deere and Kinze planters.
The super tough scrapers mount on Deere 7000 and 7100 series planters and Kinze planters, and are identical to original equipment scrapers except that they have a 1/16-in. thick, 1/4-in. wide strip of tungsten on the cutting edge. The extra-hard edge is the only part of the scraper that comes into contact with the disk.
"It works better than the original but it stays like new much longer. We're not sure how much longer they'll last because we've only had them in the field one season, but tungsten carbide can outlast steel up to 100 times in many applications," says Swenson.
The scrapers sell for $6.95 apiece. Air Design also makes scrapers to fit Deere and IH grain drills.
