Best In-Class Meter Performance
Because the components all mesh perfectly, Precision Meters hold one seed at a time, then release it. They’re engineered and built to do it again and again. You’ll see fewer skips and doubles – and higher yield.
Achieve a picket-fence stand.
Set It and Forget It
You've got more important things to do than fuss with settings and adjustments.
Perfection is the new normal.
Repower Your Existing Meters
If you don’t need a whole new meter, you can still improve your spacing with PrecisionMeter wear parts.
Get Your Meters Tested
Your Precision Planting Premier Dealer can test your meters and recommend upgrades if needed.
SureFire Seed Belt
The seed belt in your finger meter is often ignored. The belt has a very important job. After the fingers have singulated a seed, the belt has to deliver that seed to the seed tube. The seed needs to be released consistently so that each seed follows the same trajectory down the tube. Current belts hand off the seed on the right, center, or left side of the seed tube.
SkipStop Metal Cover
Seed ricochet causes skips:
• Seeds are ejected into the belt housing.
• They bounce, rattle, and roll inside the chamber.
• Often, they ricochet back, causing a skip.
Fix these issues with a SkipStop cover for your PrecisionMeter.
This backing plate has big advantages over metal plates. It’s flatter – eliminating skips. It matches seed size – swap inserts to match flats and rounds. And, the smaller exit hole reduces the chances that seeds can ricochet back into the meter.
For small seeds, adjust the brush closer to the base of the backing plate. That way the brush aggressively reaches under the finger to reduce doubles. For larger seeds, adjust the brush away from the base of the backing plate. Now, the softer brush isn't overly aggressive which can cause skips.
Using a high-speed camera, we saw:
• Existing fingers allowed flat seeds to escape.
• Seeds can get pinched against the outer wall.
• Round seeds can cluster under a finger.
Precision Fingers fix all these critical issues.
Get Even More Accuracy With vSet
PrecisionMeter can't be beat by any other finger meter on the market. We took what we learned about seed meters and packed it all into the vSet meter, the most accurate seed meter on the market today. Your finger planter can be upgraded to a vacuum planter and have vSet added to it, for adjustment-free accuracy that can't be found in a finger meter.» Learn More About vSet
