Planter & Drill Opener Blades

High quality opener blades for planters and drills are foundational to achieving reliable emergence with modern farming equipment. In recent years no-till techniques are becoming more common and these practices rely even more heavily on seeding equipment performance. The opener blade is simple enough but it has to work right. Under-performing blades lead to compaction, voids, and potentially hair-pinning of trash and residues. All of these actions negatively impact soil to seed contact and can make it very difficult for roots to achieve optimal depth. We know farmers, and we know how much the little things matter. By using carefully selected alloys, expert heat-treatment, and building robust and reinforced hubs we’ve been making dependable opener blades for decades.
