The Needham Ag V8 Firming Wheel features a flexible green urethane tire. This tire design extends 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, the only one on the market which matches the shape of the seed slot (based on concrete molds). This 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, especially within no-till conditions.

The Needham Ag V8 features the PEER SeedXTreme heavy-duty bearing to further extend service life. This is still a 5203 bearing (the same bearing which installs within most gauge wheels), but this design incorporates 12 seals (six each end) to better keep dust and other materials out. 

Needham offers a 5-year warranty on the PEER SeedXTreme bearing.
