Every Seed. Every Time
In just four years, eSet vacuum meters have become the new standard for seeding
accuracy and flexibility. Here’s why:
- Singulate any seed size or shape — there’s no pocket or cell,
which means the disk is not seed sensitive.
- Improved seed release — the raised platform means seeds
release down the center of the seed tube minimizing seed tube ricochet.
- No adjustments — you get 98.5%+ singulation on almost every
seed type without adjusting vac or double eliminators.
- Better seed agitation — seed treatments can inhibit singulation
because seeds pack together at the bottom of the meter. eSet has aggressive seed
agitation that keeps the seed pool fluid for better loading.
Seed on Cell Disk
Seed on eSet Disk
The John Deere cell disc is very sensitive to seed shape because of the pocket.
Only a few seed types fit perfectly in the pocket. That's why you have to keep
adjusting vacuum levels to try to suck most seeds against the pocket. With eSets
flat disk design, there is not a pocket so flats, rounds, large and small work
Consistency over all seed types.
These two charts show population variation with eSet and the John Deere meter.
Even with the vacuum adjusted for each seed type, the John Deere meter shows
wide variation over different seeds and speeds. Notice how the eSet population
stays constant over a wide variety of speeds and seed sizes/shapes -- all with
the same vacuum setting. Compare these results with the Cell Disk. Cell Disk
population varies dramatically at different speeds and with different seed sizes
Eliminate the guesswork.
The most frustrating thing about current vac disks is that you are always
guessing about your vac setting. Too little and you skip. Too much and you
double. But your monitor only shows you an average population – so you can’t
judge accuracy until your seed emerges.
With eSet, you set your vac and you can plant any seed – even plateless – at
98.6% accuracy or better. If you seed is over 60# per 80,000 seed bag, use 18”.
Size, weight, shape, treatments, humidity . . . doesn’t matter. And unlike early
flat disk designs, you don’t adjust this singulator. It is designed to float and
self correct so it is always in the right place at the right time.
The right release for the right spacing.
We’ve learned that a lot of the spacing problems you’ve had with your vac disk
comes from poor seed release off the disk. Celled disks force the seed to move
horizontally before falling toward the seed tube. That means that vac shut off,
static and seed position in the cell can alter the timing of the release. And
inconsistent release timing means the seed tube ride is inconsistent . . . which
means spacing is inconsistent.
