John Deere

The John Deere Company manufactures planters and drills that can be upgraded and modified with Exapta parts for improved no till farming. John Deere planter and drill equipment can wear out quickly and some of their parts do not work optimally for no till conditions.

Thompson Closing Wheels For John Deere Equipment

The John Deere closing wheel is one of the parts that doesn’t work particularly well for no till planting. Our Thompson closing wheels shatter the sidewall much better and avoid packing that occurs with OEM wheels.

Our Thompson closing wheels fit these John Deere planters:

  • John Deere 1700 MaxEmerge 5 Planters
  • John Deere 1700 Series XP Planters
  • John Deere 1700 Planters with ‘Pro’ Row Units (Shanks)
  • John Deere 1700 Series MaxEmerge 5 (convert to 5/8” bolts)
  • John Deere 1700 Series with XP row units (convert to 5/8” bolts)
  • John Deere 1700 Series with ‘Pro’ row units (convert to 5/8” bolts)
  • John Deere 1700 Series with MaxEmerge 2 units (convert to 5/8” bolts)
  • John Deere 7300 Planters
  • John Deere 7200 Series (pre-XP) Planters

Thompson closing wheels fit the following John Deere drills:

  • John Deere 60 Series (1560, 1860)
  • John Deere 90 Series (1590, 1890, 1890 CCS, 1990, 1690, 1895)
  • John Deere 750 Drills (above serial number 3834)
  • John Deere 1850 Drills

UniForce Hydraulic Down-Pressure System For John Deere Drills

Our UniForce hydraulic down-pressure system can be added to John Deere drills, overcoming one of the drill’s biggest design flaws: lack of down stroke.

The UniForce can be used with these John Deere drills and fertilizer applicators:

  • John Deere 50 Series Drills
  • John Deere 60 Series Drills
  • John Deere 90 Series Drills (all widths, all models)
  • John Deere 2510H Anhydrous Applicator

Mojo Wire Stiffeners For Keeton Seed Firmers

Our Mojo wires work with the Keetons on your planter or drill to firm the seed into the bottom of the furrow. Exapta manufactures the Mojo wires to fit the following John Deere planters and drills:

  • John Deere 1700 series MaxEmerge 5 Planters
  • John Deere 1700 series XP Planters
  • John Deere 1700 series pre-XP Planters (MaxEmerge 2 row units)
  • John Deere 7000 Planters
  • John Deere 7100 Planters
  • John Deere 7200 Planters
  • John Deere Planters
  • John Deere 60 Series Drills (we strongly prefer seed-lock wheels, however)
  • John Deere 90 Series Drills (we strongly prefer seed-lock wheels, however)
  • John Deere 450 Drills
  • John Deere 455 Drills
  • John Deere 750 Drills (we strongly prefer seed-lock wheels, however)
  • John Deere 1520 Drills
  • John Deere 1850 Drills (we strongly prefer seed-lock wheels, however)

DuraLok Seed Lock Wheels For John Deere Drills

The original equipment manufacturer seed lock wheels clog with mud and pull seeds out of the furrow. Our DuraLok seed lock wheel is narrower to fit the furrow better and its sleek shape allows it to stay clean. DuraLok seed lock wheels fit the following John Deere drills:

  • John Deere 50 Series Drills
  • John Deere 60 Series Drills
  • John Deere 90 Series Drills

Seed Bounce Flaps For John Deere Drills

John Deere drills use a straight, almost rigid seed bounce flap. Its triangular shape allows seeds to escape and the flaps are made from materials that are really too brittle, causing them to snap off in the field. Our Ninja seed bounce flaps have a unique forward bend that puts more seeds in the bottom of the furrow. The Ninja seed bounce flaps fit the following John Deere drills:

  • John Deere 60 Series Drills that have been updated with 90 Series Boots
  • John Deere 90 Series Drills
  • John Deere 750 Drill
  • John Deere 1850 Drill

Valion Seed Tube Guards For John Deere Planters

Factory seed tube guards can wear out over one season. Plus, those rivets make them hard to replace. Valion seed tube guards are easy to replace and last 2 – 5 times longer than the original equipment manufacturer’s!

Our Valion Seed Tube Guards fit these John Deere Planters:

• John Deere 1700 Series XP Planters
• John Deere 1700 MaxEmerge 5 Planters
• John Deere 1700 Series Planters with MaxEmerge 2 row units
• John Deere 7000 Planters
• John Deere 7100 Planters
• John Deere 7200 Planters
• John Deere 7300 Planters
