Kinze

Kinze planters can be upgraded and modified with Exapta parts for improved no-till seeding performance as well as greater longevity.

Thompson closing wheels for Kinze planters

Kinze closing wheels on the planters are one of the parts that do not work particularly well for no-till planting. Our Thompson closing wheels shatter the sidewall much more effectively and avoid packing that occurs with smooth OEM wheels. Our Thompson closing wheels fit these Kinze planters (as well as Monosems and Flexi-coils that used Kinze row units):

  • Kinze 1230 (if upgraded to bolt-on closing brackets)
  • Kinze 1630 (if upgraded to bolt-on closing brackets)
