SPRING COIL PRESS WHEELS

RFM SPRING COIL PRESS WHEELS

This unique system of self-cleaning, self-closing press wheels is proving to revolutionise press wheeling behind planters. It is successful in most conditions from sticky trash to sand.

The RFM Spring Coil Press Wheel is designed to squeeze together around the seed rather than pack it down from the top. Pressing all the air out of the ground around the seed, it gives good soil-to-seed contact, allowing the seed to have an easy establishment. The unique squeezing action of the coils allows it to self-clean of mud and trash and, most importantly, not pick up seed and close the furrow off, for better seed to soil contact.

The coil press wheels come in various designs; two or three coils, depending on the footprint required, tyne-mounted models, with or without a seeding boot.
