This kit works on most brands of air-seeder which have 1″ ID seed hoses, including John Deere and Case IH. The kit is designed for an air-seeder that has a width which is an even multiple of the sprayer width, for example a 30′ air-seeder and a 60′ boom, or a 40′ air-seeder and a 120′ boom. Uneven multiple systems are available, such as a 40′ air-seeder and a 100′ boom, but additional hardware is required, so please contact us directly for a price quote on this system.
The above kit is designed for an air-seeder with 7.5″ spacing and narrow tires on the sprayer (narrower than 15″). If your row spacing is 7.5″ (for example) and your sprayer tires are wider than 15″, you will need a 2nd set of tramming assemblies and hardware to run your sprayer down, please contact us directly for a price quote on this system.
Virginia Tech University and University of Delaware researchers found knocking down crops with tires can cause yield losses of 1% to 3% depending on the boom width and the width of the tires. Tramlines can almost eliminate these yield losses by diverting the seeds to one side (or ideally both sides). At 1-3% crop knockdown, and a $7 per bushel wheat price, with 80 bushel per acre yields, knockdown losses could tally between $5.60 and $16.80 per acre. Tramlines can also eliminate the green heads in the wheel tracks at harvest.
