Forges vs ingersoll blade bevels no tillFor years now, we’ve recommended the Ingersoll opener blade for no till drills, and we still sell these. But we’ve found that the Forges de Niaux 200 blade takes performance to a new level, and we consider it the best of the best.

These drill opener blades will improve soil penetration and reduce hairpinning (residue getting tucked into the seed furrow). In no till farming, it’s critical that your blade stays sharp in order to cut through straw and stalks, and the Forges de Niaux 200 – made from a different steel than other opener blades – stays sharper longer.

The Niaux 200 opener blades are the same dimension as the OEM (18 inches), which is critical. Some aftermarket drill opener blades are larger than 18 inches, which causes two problems. First, larger drill opener blades create more hairpinning. And secondly, larger drill opener blades can create gaps that allows more seeds to escape.

Customer Reviews For Forges de Niaux

Here’s what our customers are saying about the Forges de Niaux opener blades

“The FDN blades I put on last fall have worn really good. I’ve put on 8,000 acres and they look great, yet. Granted last year soils were wetter conditions, but I can’t believe the limited wear. At this rate, I wonder if we’ll get another 12,000 acres.”
