Have you ever wondered why there are over 30+ different planter closing wheels that attach to the same frame from the 70’s?
How is FurrowForce different from other closing wheels?
Rather than trying to close from the soil surface, FurrowForce has first stage notched wheels that are aggressively angled to fracture the sidewall of the furrow, moving soil horizontally. The depth of the first stage notched wheels is determined by the second stage stitch wheels. The two stages are rigidly linked to accomplish this depth control. The second stage sets depth but also carries weight. It firms the soil above the seed with adjustable airbag force. FurrowForce can be optimized for the best closing performance because depth, the width of the first stage notched wheels, and pressure are adjusted either manually or automatically.
