Needham Ag’s V8 firming wheel now features a flexible green urethane tire. It installs on John Deere single-disc drills and air seeders, plus the Case SDX air seeder.
The new tire is designed to extend service life and has been found to improve mud shedding, especially in higher moisture no-till conditions.
The urethane tire retains the same field-proven tapered profile, which matches the shape of the seed slot (based on concrete molds). The tire profile imprints seeds into the bottom of the seed slot across a wide range of soil types and soil moisture conditions to maximize seed to soil contact and help improve the standards of crop emergence.
