Needham 2 3/4 x 16″ Narrow Gauge Wheel Assemblies come assembled, ready to bolt on.
The 2 3/4″ x 16″ Narrow Gauge Wheel Assemblies are almost half the width of a standard gauge wheel and are excellent for no-till, especially into corn stalks as the avoid about half of the residue which results in better depth control. They have two heavy duty steel wheel halves (not one steel and one plastic like lots of our completion) and come standard with the Peer SeedXTreme heavy duty bearing.
The Needham 2 3/4 x 16″ Narrow Gauge Wheel Assemblies also features a urethane narrow gauge wheel tire which is very abrasion resistant, in fact ASTM D-1938 lab testing has shown they last around 7 times longer than rubber tires and field testing has confirmed similar increases in performance. For example, we have growers who didn’t make it through the first season with their rubber gauge wheel tires, so they purchased our urethane gauge wheel tires and have ran them for 5-6 years in similar conditions without failure.
