Planter stop holds units out of groundA new planter "stop" makes it easy to lift individual row units up out of,the ground when you need to block off rows for narrow row beans, when planting delayed male or female seed corn rows, or whenever else you need to block a unit out of the ground. Works on Deere Max-Emerge, Kinze, and New Idea planters, including air and push-type models.
"Until we invented Maxi-Lifts, most people bolted a flat piece of strap iron between the parallel linkage on the planter. That's time-consuming because it's often difficult to line up bolt holes. To use Maxi-Lifts you simply pin the lift to an existing hole on the planter linkage, then lift the planter unit up and flip over the pivoting Maxi-Lift. It's quick, simple and easy to use," says farmer-inventor Jeff Bridgewater, who's sold more than 2,000 Maxi-Lifts by word of mouth advertising.
Bridgewater notes that when you don't need to block up the unit, Maxi-Lift folds down out of the way. Two Maxi-Lifts are required per row. They sell for $15 a pair.
