Think your planter can make it one more season without an inspection? You might be surprised just how much worn parts can impact your bottom line. Legacy Equipment can test your meters to ensure you maximize your planter's performance...and your farm's potential. Correct population, uniform spacing, and emergence can impact yield potential.
Some of the most commonly replaced meter wear parts that can negatively impact your planter's ability to deliver the correct population or uniform spacing with a vacuum meter include knockout wheels, seed meter brushes, and vacuum meter seals. Correct population and spacing accuracy can ultimately impact your yield potential by up to 4 bu/acre. If any or all of these meter parts are worn or damaged, the table to the right illustrates the associated yield and revenue that may be at risk.
