The next generation of Needham Ag V8 firming wheel has been released. This new version retains the proven profile and now comes with a urethane tire. The urethane tire offers the benefits of increased durability, plus the flexibility to help shed mud, especially in moist clay soils. The flexible tire is also beneficial to help keep the firming wheel down within the seed slot, especially when operating on hillsides and when making slight turns.
The firming wheel is 10″ diameter and 0.65” wide at the outside of the tire, with a tapered profile to match the seed slot. It uses button head bolts to help improve residue flow, especially in no-till conditions.
The firming wheels fit the John Deere 50, 60 and 90 series openers together with Case IH SDX air-seeders.
