Self Cleaning System"It makes the Flexi-Coil packer a viable tillage tool for all farmers, regardless of how wet or sticky their soil," says the Canadian manufacturer of a new experimental "Star" self-cleaning system.
Injection moulded from extra-strength plastic, the self-lubricating "Stars" keep the coils clean in extremely wet, heavy or sticky soils. "With no sticking or plugging problems to worry about, all farmers ¨ including corn growers and irrigation farmers in the U.S. ¨can use the Flexi-Coil. Up to now, its use has been pretty much restricted to lighter dryland soils," the manufacturer points out.
Worming action of the coils rotates the "Stars" which prevent soil from bridging or building up between the rings. The "Stars" are easily removed when not needed.
"The system is still in research and development but we'd welcome inquiries from interested farmers, particularly those who farm heavy soils in row crop country," reports Robert Webber, advertising manager.
