NEEDHAM AG V8 FIRMING WHEEL
The new urethane tire design will extend service life and has been found to improve mud shedding, especially in higher moisture no-till conditions.
The urethane tire retains the same field proven tapered profile, which Needham Ag says is the only one on the market that matches the shape of the seed slot (based on concrete molds). This tire profile imprints seeds into the bottom of the seed slot across a wide range of soil types and soil moisture conditions to maximize seed to soil contact and help improve the standards of crop emergence, especially within no-till conditions, or when seeding in marginal moisture conditions.
The Needham Ag V8 features the Peer SeedXTreme heavy duty bearing to extend service life further. This is still a 5203 bearing, but this new design incorporates 12 seals (6 each end) to better keep dust and other materials out.
Fits John Deere 50, 60 and 90 Series drills and air seeders, plus Case-IH SDX air seeders.
NINJA SEED BOUNCE FLAP
Exapta’s Ninja flexible seed bounce flap keeps more seeds in the furrow, and is less prone to breakage in the field (less brittle) as compared to OEM or other aftermarket flaps.
The flap on the seed boot is what keeps seeds from bouncing out of the furrow, and this is even more critical on air drills, since the air stream is also trying to escape and may carry seeds along with it. However, JD & aftermarket flap suppliers use a straight flap, made from materials that are too brittle—often snapping off in the field. The issue with straight flaps is that it leaves a triangular gap for seeds to escape, and this gap gets larger when the straight flaps bend upward during use, due to riding on the sidewall.
The Exapta Ninja flap has a 20-degree forward bend to help close this gap, thus keeping more seeds in the furrow. The forward bend helps deflect seeds downward into the furrow bottom before dust and chunks of sidewall fall in ahead of the seed. The flexible material and tapered end prevent the Ninja flap from riding on the sidewall. The result is better seed placement. Ninjas also shed mud better than OEM and competitors, and proven to have superior wear characteristics — these Ninjas will last at least 5 times longer than OEM or competitors! (Indeed, we don’t know of anyone who has actually worn any out!)
