- Martin 13” spiked closing wheels are recommended for growers who regularly no-till into higher moisture soils, especially residue covered clay soils.
- Spiked closing wheels engage the soil to close the seed slot and leave loose soil above the seed to help speed emergence within higher moisture soils.
- Martin 13” spiked closing wheels are available to fit on the 60 and 90 series closing wheel arms and come with all the hardware to mount to the existing arm and bearing. They come with 2 spacers to move the wheel to the side of the row.
- Martin 13” spiked wheels are not recommended for use in tall cover crops such as cereal rye that’s taller than say 18-24” tall or wrapping can occur. If you plan to seed into such conditions, consider the Martin Razor wheel.
NOTE: The 13″ Martin spiked closing wheel is pictured on a 50 Series Opener, the row above the spiked wheel compares the lack of closing action with the standard John Deere cast wheel. We will ship the correct hardware to mount the 13″ spiked wheel on the 60/90/ProSeries closing wheel arm.
Please also note you will need RH and LH wheels for all John Deere drills and air-seeders. We will ship an even number according to what you order, so if you order 48 we will ship 24RH and 24LH.
