The new 2940 Air Adjust Firming Wheel from Yetter Equipment has an exciting feature — air systems that allow you to adjust pressure from the cab.
The latest addition to the Yetter series of cab-controlled attachments that offer a solution for the time demands today’s farmers face, this closing-wheel system takes sealing the seed opening to the next level.
Pressure is controlled from the tractor cab using patent-pending Air Adjust technology. The easy-to-read digital cab controller allows for precise adjustments, making it convenient to change settings between different conditions.
The Firming Wheel complements spike and rubber closing wheels by gently firming the seed zone, which helps create an ideal seedbed. “A perfect seed environment is the result,” said Yetter Territory Manager Jared Head.
“Spike closing wheels easily eliminate sidewall compaction and loosen the soil beside the seed, but field conditions vary, and in some situations, the seedbed may still be less than ideal,” Head explained.
“If producers who are experiencing challenging soil conditions add Yetter Firming Wheels to their planters, a more uniform growing environment can be created.”
The Yetter Firming Wheel also helps prevent air pockets. That benefit, combined with its ability to create a uniform growing environment and a welcoming seedbed, result in even emergence. “Producers know even emergence is one of the biggest keys to maximizing yields,” said Head.
Growers currently using a setup with two spike closing wheels should consider adding a firming wheel as a solution to firm up the seed zone and help prevent soil erosion.
The Firming Wheel uses 2940 Air Adjust technology to adjust air pressure and pivot to follow the changing terrain. Its benefits won’t disappoint producers looking to increase the effectiveness of the closing wheels.
“Now you can make adjustments to height and down pressure that you may not have made before, increasing even seed emergence and leading to increased yields,” said Head. For additional information see http://www.yetterco.com.
