We don’t encourage growers to plant in mud, but we understand that there are often examples where perhaps 95 percent of a field is dry enough to plant, but the remaining areas of the field are low or wet spots which you have to plant though. Its these small areas of the fields which often cause gauge wheels to plug with mud, so for these conditions we offer spoked gauge wheel assemblies.
The Spoked Gauge Wheel Assembly comes ready to bolt on, and features a heavy duty ductile iron tri-spoked center with a large open area to allow wet soil to escape. It also has 9 nuts/bolts which securely hold the center to the wheel halves, not 6 like the OEM versions.
Nuts and bolts are stainless steel, not grade 3 or 5 steel bolts, like our competition uses.
The Spoked Wheel Assembly also comes standard with the long life Peer SeedXTreme bearing.
