      The torsion spring allows you to adjust for up to 715 pounds of down force, maintaining uniform seed depth in uneven conditions.

    • Trailing Gauge Wheel

      Trailing Gauge Wheel

      Trailing gauge wheels reduce vibrations at higher speeds.

    • Stop Wheel
      Stop Wheel

      Stop Wheel

      This wheel stops the seed as it exits the seed tube, ensuring optimal seed-to-soil contact.

    • Closing Wheel
