SIDE BAND TIP
Seed Placement: The seed is placed in a 3/4” (19mm) and to the side of the fertilizer row, after the carbide wafer under the tip’s wing seals the fertilizer trench and firms up the seed bed.
Fertilizer Placement: Fertilizer is placed in the centre 3/4″ (19mm) below the seed bed. The carbide wafer under the wing seals the fertilizer trench before the seed is placed. In less than ideal conditions, mixing between seed and fertilizer may occur.
Packer Recommendation: 3” (76mm) or wider.
Overview: Cast chrome tip with carbide inserts on the nose and the wing for excellent penetration and wear resistance. A carbide wafer on the bottom of the fertilizer trough prevents bottom wear and keeps the fertilizer trench open. A carbide wafer under the wing seals the fertilizer trench, and firms the seed bed prior to seed placement. Hard facing is placed on critical wear points to ensure a long-lasting holder, proper seed placement and virtually no plugging. The streamlined holder design combined with the front delivery concept reduces plugging and encourages trash clearance.
ALL WINGS ON SIDE BAND OPENERS MUST BE POINTING INWARD TO THE CENTER OF THE SEEDING UNIT TO PREVENT PLUGGING WHEN TURNING.
Customer should order half left and half right wing tips. 614-TIP-2711 (left wing) & 614-TIP-2712 (right wing).
