Uniform Pressure On Every Opener, Throughout Its Full Stroke
As anyone who has ever used a John Deere 50 series, 60 series, or 90 series drill can attest, there is a serious design flaw – almost no down-stroke! To compensate, you’ll have to crank the pressure way up, which causes a slew of other problems (excessive sidewall compaction, extra weight needed on the frame, and more).
What if you could use your John Deere drill and get uniform pressure on every single opener, throughout its full stroke? Wouldn’t that be great? Well, now you can, thanks to our UniForce Hydraulic Down Pressure System.
Why We Designed The UniForce Hydraulic Down-Pressure System
John Deere 50 / 60 / 90 drill openers drills come with springs, and springs bounce and have very little down stroke because the spring is nearly parallel to the arm. Unless the field you are planting is laser level (which, let’s face it, few are), the openers on the drill won’t work correctly. Even the smallest depressions give these openers fits as the spring relaxes a bit and the openers skate out, failing to cut the straw and making very shallow furrows.
The good news is that hydraulics do not bounce! In fact, we’ve tested the UniForce by leaving one opener on a John Deere drill with its original spring. It’s amazing how much the row with the OEM spring bounces, particularly when compared with the smooth and steady performance of the rows that have the UniForce Hydraulic Down-Pressure System on them. Plus, the UniForce system makes much better use of your frame weight, requiring less ballast (less ballast equals less frame stress and breakage).
Uniform pressure throughout the range of opener travel means better cutting, less hairpinning, less sidewall compaction, and more accurate, consistent seed furrow depth. In other words, better crop yields!

Here’s what our customers are saying about the UniForce Hydraulic Down-Pressure System…
“Before installing UniForce, the drill openers looked like a piano board being played. Now that UniForce is installed, it is amazing to see how no opener bounce occurs.”
(uses the UniForce on a 43-foot John Deere single rank 1690 CCS, with 32 openers on 15-inch spacing)
“Last fall was extremely hard and dry for wheat sowing. I was able to hold the depth much better with the UniForce hydraulic system than I would’ve with John Deere springs.”
(uses the UniForce and Thompson Wheels on a John Deere 1860 air drill)
“We have more flexibility going over terraces now, and not leaving little skips. The openers stay in the ground better.”
