Working hard for your success this planting season!

Anything lower than 99% accuracy is unacceptable here.

John Rider, Precision Product Specialist and Matt McCann, Service Technician have been hard at work testing planter meters to ensure customers have 98+% accuracy this planting season.

Anything from Kinze, Deere finger pick-up to V-Set and vacuum unit, John and Matt go through the same process for all planters.

Each unit is pre-tested, its performance documented, taken apart and cleaned. From there, a repair list is made outlining what it needs to get to 98+% accuracy. Once authorized to repair, parts are ordered, units are assembled, fine-tuned and run again. Results are then printed and less than 99% is unacceptable to John and Matt so it may not stop there.

This process may not seem the most complex but the numbers multiply when a planter can have up to 24 units. Needless to say they’ve been busy.

The duo’s main objective in doing this testing is to maximize planter operation while increasing yields thru the testing and repair options we have to offer to get the seed to the ground at the proper time and spacing. The key is superior spacing and singulation. The meter units are run, adjusted, and monitored to achieve the optimum settings with air pressure and brush adjustments.

In retrospect John and Matt’s perseverance and dedication made a job full of obstacles and challenges a huge success. They stayed committed to getting it done and done well.

Here’s to accurate planting and John and Matt!!
