Copperhead Furrow Cruiser Case IH Conversion Kit
Farmer testimonial of the Case closing system not working well in conditions other than ideal led to the development of the Case Conversion Kit, which converts the case wide closing wheel into a two wheel closing system. Farmers kept telling us they would walk behind their planter and find the furrow completely open, with very little dirt moved back over the seed. The Case closing system works well in a sand table demonstration, but lacks the power necessary to deal with clay soils, residue, cover crops, or extra moisture. In a real world situation, farmers needed a closing wheel that could crumble down the sidewalls and ensure excellent seed to soil contact for each seed. With a wheel that both crumbles down the soil with the spike, and firms the soil around the seed with the width, Copperhead Ag Furrow Cruiser wheels are meant for helping this Case planter close the seed trench in all planting conditions.
The simple conversion takes a matter of minutes to convert your Case IH planter from the single packing wheel to the 2 wheel Furrow Cruiser(R) closing wheel system. Pull the bolt and the single packing wheel off of the tail piece. Slide on the Copperhead Ag bracket and attach it with 2 bolts thru the existing holes. Attach the 2 Furrow Cruiser spiked closing wheels to the bracket and the conversion is completed
The Furrow Cruiser Case IH Conversion Kit can be used on the Case IH 5400 and 5500 Soybean Specials; and the 800, 900, and 1200 Series planters.
The kit includes a single bracket, 2 complete Furrow Cruiser wheels and the hardware to install the kit.
