Default E-set meters

yeah they are well worth the money in my opinion, especially when it comes to spacing, and overall accuracy of the planter.

They are worth it. Perfect in any type, shape, or size seed. Loved them for corn, so we got the sugar beets also for this year.

I would say the majority in my area are using them.

Agree with the above posts...they are worth the money. I have witnessed some of the best spacing and population results when we walked fields planted with Precision eSet meters.

where do you generally set the vaccum when planting corn with e-sets

If the 80,000 count bag is less than 60 lbs, then Precision recommends 15"+. If the bag is above 60 lbs then they recommend 18"+. This is more than other vacs and you will possibly wear the lid seals a little more, but that is the trade-off to having better singulation and improved spacing. Precision also sells a vac gauge that reads higher vac settings if your planter gauge only goes to 15". Most meters if you increase the vac too much you plant doubles, and too little you have skips. Constantly fighting the setting. With eSet it is fairly simple...you want enough vac that you make sure you load every hole regardless of your seed size(s) or mix. If you do this, the singulator takes care of the rest and insures that any doubles are knocked off with the result being a well singulated seed.

Look at them closely and do your homework, and you will see why so many people are switching to eSets. Actually...find a Precision dealer in your area and tell him you would like to watch an eSet run on his test stand. Take your toughest seed to plant and have them run it. It would give you an idea before you ever purchase the units.
Just my 2 cents.

we have been running our meters around that 15 range and we have one row that plants way less than the others when we were planting around 30,000 it was down around 23,000 to 25,000 and its not the seed tube sensor if we put in one bag of seed per box it is the only one with a ton of seed in it, and we replaced the vac seals and swapped the seed disk so im not sure what to really for where the elimators should be or such
