Re: E-sets VS ProMAX 40 disks
I have the E sets and they are ok. They are much better than the deere factory plates. The problem is not so much with the plates, but the inability to see the actual seed drops and the fussiness of accurate vacuum settings. Forget the actual vacuum gage reading, it is only for crude initial setting. The fine tuning needs to be done based on actual field conditions.
But remember, no seed spacing discussion is complete without considering the field roughness, planting speed, and side slope.
If you are truly concerned about seed spacing, you need to go to a system with real time seed drop monitoring. Big John Manufacturing has a monitor that will allow you to see the individual seed drops. The Big John is not compatable with with deere's can buss set-up.
Can buss, what a joke! What moron engineer decided to use a 5 hz carrier to send a 20 hz signal?
