ACRA-PLANT NOTCHED DISC OPENERS

Convert your standard planter to a No-Till machine without increasing row unit down-pressure and without the high cost of residue management systems or coulters. 

  • Strong disc design is 50% thicker chrome-moly alloy that sheds wet soil better and keeps discs clear
  • Stronger, heavy duty bearing and flange design
  • Modified gothic arch bearing structure extends wear and runs straight and true
  • Molded rubber hubcap stays in place
  • Acra-Plant notched discs and inserts turn your present planter into the ultimate narrow profile no-till system insert
  • 11 & 15 notch discs aggressively slice through the toughest residue
  • Package requires the Acra-Plant V-slice insert
Special Features of Acra-Plant No-Till/Min Till Planter Notched Disc Opener Kit

The two disc blades in the set each have a different number of notches, 15 notches on one blade and 11 notches on the other. This assures that the blades will self-turn instead of skidding over old crop residue and the blade notches overlap as they work together to actually CUT the trash ahead of the V-slice opener system. This feature converts the planter openers to a true NO-TILL operation that is equally suited for Minimum Till and Conservation Tillage plans.

 

The disc blades themselves are up to 50% thicker than the smooth OEM blades that they replace. Combine that with the Chrome-Boron-Moly alloy, and you get a strength and durability unmatched by other replacement blades. Cutting through heavy residue and trash acre after acre requires tough, durable, and thick opener blades. Acra-Plant answers the call to duty with these blades.

 

Note that the opener discs feature a flat ground edge, rather than the cheaper alternative of hollow grinding the edge. Flat grinding a true bevel allows the blades to self sharpen as they wear, rather than immediately going dull.

 

The bearings used in Acra-Plant opener discs are of the true Gothic Arch design. Gothic Arch 4-race bearings cost more, but they allow the bearings to transmit radial load, axial thrust & overturning moments to a much greater extent than the cheaper twin-race ball bearings.

 

The alloy casting V-slice opener that actually produces the uniform seed trench is made of 25% chrome for longer life and durability.
