The large White Planters 9000 Series double disc seed trench openers (16-inch) allow for deeper seed placement. A cast row unit assembly removes the flex/tolerances versus welded construction, providing strength and precise, consistent alignment of all components.

Accurately monitor a wide range of seed sizes within a wide range of population rates.
Seed-Smart sensors learn the size of seeds to monitor accurately very small high-value seeds at high population levels. These sensors are a popular option with sugar beet growers.
The wheels may be staggered for better residue flow between the closing wheels. Staggering also provides superior seed trench closing capabilities in no-till conditions.
The double-row bearings and attaching bolt improve the connection between the gauge wheel and the arm. Extended service life of the gauge wheel bearing and attaching hardware can be expected.
The seed tube locating clip positively centers the seed drop tube between the opener discs. The clip reduces the potential of the seed tube contacting the rotating disc openers, which causes seed tube vibration and wear. The absence of seed tube vibration assures a more consistent placement of seed.
The equalizer arm permits lateral adjustment to obtain proper contact between the opener disc and the gauge wheels. Loosening the retaining bolt and turning the hex adjustment mechanism permits lateral adjustment of the closing wheels against the seed trench openers. The geometry of the row unit to the equalizer arm pivot remains consistent through the full range of adjustment and depth settings.
Open-framed row unit allows unrestricted access to the seed meter for meter inspection and changing seed disc.
16-inch and 3.5 mm thick for longer life and increased durability. The opposing bearing design permits the disc openers to share the cutting duties equally, for extended life and superior cutting action. The opener blades feature double-row 26 mm ball bearings with a heavy-duty cast hub, providing increased retention capacity of the bearing for greater durability and extended service life.
The gauge wheel arm incorporates non-metallic composite bushings and shaft seals for maintenancefree performance. The seal reduces the ingestion of foreign material into the maintenance-free composite bushings. Extended operatin
The depth adjustment handle provides a visual indication of planting depth along all row units in increments. Each notch aligned left and right changes the depth .5-inch. Walking the handle one notch at a time, side to side, increases the depth .25-inch. Seed depth placement numbers are molded into the casting, providing a convenient visual indicator of the depth of seed placement for each row unit.
A positive lock molded latch ensures a firm attachment of the hopper lid. In combination with the sealed lid, the positive latch stops air from escaping the hopper and maximizes efficient use of air supplied to the row units.
The hopper mounts into two “C” retainers located at the front of the hopper and retained at the rear by two over-center latches. Simply disengage the seed meter clutch and lift the meter and hopper off the row unit by tipping the meter and hopper forward. No tools are required.
Improve seed-to-soil contact in heavier soil and moderate notill conditions. Adjust wheels by offsetting them or changing width for improved performance at various seed depth and soil conditions. Adjustable down pressure: 50 to 133 lbs. (23 to 133 kg.)
Great for closing the toughest seed trench. Recommended for tough no-till. Adjust wheels by offsetting or changing width for improved performance in high-residue and notill conditions. Adjustable down pressure: 115 to 310 lbs. (52 to 141 kg.)
Firms both sides of the seed trench in mellow soil conditions. Advantageous for shallow planting in tilled soil. The center of the seed trench is capped for a soft top. Adjustable down pressure: 50 to 133 lb. (23 to 133 kg.)
