Shut-Off Kit for Deere, Kinze Pesticide Hoppers"With our Insecticide/Herbicide Hopper Shut-Off you can switch the hopper drive on or off in 30 seconds per unit," says Terry Jack, president of TL Fabrication, Victor, Iowa.
"It does away with having to dump the pesticide out, shutting the hopper gate or having the pesticide pulverized by the feed roller," Jack points out.
Key to the kit, which installs on Deere Max-Emerge, Kinze and New Idea planters, are split sprockets and a nylon spacer snap which replace the existing hopper drive sprocket.
To install, you remove the existing hopper drive sprocket, slide on the 2 in. dia. sprocket which drives the pesticide hopper, then slide on the 3 1/4 in. dia. sprocket which is cotter-pinned to the shaft and driven by the planter's ground drive.
The kit sells for $19.95, which includes both sprockets, the spacer snap and cotter pin. It's available through Deere, Kinze and New Idea dealers.
