The 4Ag closing wheel was designed by farmers for farmers to ultimately increase emergence by improving seed to soil contact leaving a soft tilled surface as a result. Made from the same patent pending tough proprietary composition as our gauge wheels, our fully assembled closing wheel includes a bolt kit with spacers to provide easy installation with multiple adjustments accommodating a variety of planting conditions. Our unique design includes added tiller tines that till roughly the top quarter inch of the soil leaving the ground surface loose to prevent baking in wet conditions while also eliminating the need to add additional equipment such as a harrow or drag chain. Tilling the surfaces mulches the crack where the two sides of the trench come together, ensuring full closure of the seed trench.
Depth Adjust Cover, made from thicker material than OEM, to help extend service life.
Spindle, with triple lip seals to help keep dust out and grease in (an improvement to the factory rubber o-ring), plus they are zinc coated.
Depth Adjust Knob which should be available later this year, this is a heavier duty material than OEM to last longer.
Gauge Wheel Axle, zinc coated and made from heavier material than OEM to help extend service life.
Gauge Wheel Arm, made from high grade steel (not cast like the OEM), so our arm will last many times longer in the field.
2984 Strip Fresheners from Yetter Farm Equipment create a 10” wide strip in the spring or the fall. The three-blade design with a rolling basket makes new strips or revives existing strips to create a consistent planting zone. Strip Fresheners operate at 6-10mph and have a depth adjustment range of 1 ½”-4”. The new Strip Freshener Cab Control (CC) enables quick adjustments to row cleaners, rolling baskets, and row-unit down pressure-all form the tractor seat. An optional fertilizer kit for liquid or dry applications is also available.
Mounted behind the closing wheels, Yetter Farm Equipment's 2969 Fertilizer Opener will follow the ground contour and apply fertilizer up to 1.5 inches deep and 2-3 inches off the row. Controls from the cab give producers the ability to manage downforce on the units as well as allowing them to be completely raised when not in use.
Steerable track kits from Gramlow Ltd. will minimize pinch rows and keep your planter tracking straight. Complete bolt-on kits are simple to install right on the farm by the farmer. Tracks offer more than double the footprint of your 4 tires and only leave two tracks through the field. They will sometimes make up 4 times the surface area of the 4 tires on your planter. Use the steerable axle with GPS guided implement steering to keep your planter directly on top of strip-till strips, or keep guest rows perfect for post-emerge chemical or fertilizer application without driving on the rows. Axle spacing and track width options available to get you the kit that fits your needs.

The Dual Placement System from Precision Fabrication LLC places the liquid nutrients 3 inches from the seed trench, on both sides, and the same depth as the seed. Placing nutrients in the root zone has proven to give the best crop yields for the fertilizer dollar. It is designed as a low pressure system to avoid getting splatter on the machine. Ten-inch openers run slightly “toed in,” thus creating 2 narrow trenches into which the fertilizer is streamed at very low pressure. Eleven models cover many popular planter row units.
