May Wes, inventor of the Original Stalk Stomper, proudly introduces its latest game-changing innovation for no-till and strip-till farming operations, G4 Planter Stalk Stompers for John Deere 17700NT planters.

An agricultural industry first, May Wes G4 Planter Stalk Stompers level tough residual cornstalks ahead of the planter wheels, protecting the wheels from stubble damage and reducing costly downtime.

“We introduced the G4 Planter Stalk Stompers after receiving multiple requests from no-till and strip-till farmers who were chewing up their planter wheels on tough cornstalks,” said Eric Bates, May Wes sales manager. “To our knowledge, May Wes is the only manufacturer offering Stalk Stompers for planters.”

G4 Planter Stalk Stompers feature the same durable 12” wide compression molded UHMW poly G4 Stalk Stomper shoes used on May Wes’s popular G4 Stalk Stompers for corn heads. The G4 Planter Stalk Stompers are sold in four row kits that include two 72” 2”X2” toolbars, four G4 Stalk Stomper shoes and adjustable mounting brackets. Additional G4 Stalk Stomper shoes, toolbars and mounting brackets can be purchased separately.

May Wes G4 Planter Stalk Stompers are easy to install; simply bolt them to the planter frame using a 2”x2” tool bar and adjustable mounting brackets and set them to the desired height.

Planter Stalk Stompers for Case IH Model 1250 Early Riser planters are coming soon.
