Planter Parts and Equipment
$20.00Quick Attach bracket only: fits JD 7000 thru ME5 (except ExactEmerge's brush-belt); Kinze 2000s. Also fits Kinze 3000s with small/standard seed tubes (not the oversize ones -- you need the scraper-mount Quick Attach brkts for those). Kinze 4900s also need the QA scraper-mount.
This Quick Attach kit fits JD 7000 thru ME5 (except BrushBelt ExactEmerge) & Kinze 2000s. Quick Attach brackets are much sturdier and easier to install than the Universals. Single liquid tube goes all the way through tail. This kit is comprised of KTN150109 bracket along with KTN140045 standard-height tail.
Use different Quick Attach brkts for White 9000s, Kinze 3000s & 4900s.$20.00Quick Attach Keeton bracket for Kinze 4900s (all) & 3000s (with oversize seed tubes). (For non-EdgeVac Kinze 3000s prior to 2013, you can use the wrap-around Quick Attach brkt, which positions the tail about 1.5" farther forward for better performance.) Tail not included.
Keeton Quick Attach bracket and standard tail with single liquid tube. Installs inside of row unit frame using disk scraper mounting holes. Fits Kinze 3000, 4000 series planters with SpeedTube, WaveVision, Bullseye, and "Small" or "Large" seed tubes. Will NOT work with spring loaded disk scrapers.The Universal Bracket fits Deere 7000s thru XP (& Max-Emerge 5 [without BrushBelt] if brkt legs cut & hole drilled in shank, or if converted to XP guards), Kinze 2000s, White 6000s – 9000s, & some Kinze 3000s (non-EdgeVac, prior to 2013). (Kinze EdgeVac & all 2013 & newer models [including 4900] need Scraper-Mount bracket instead.) (ME5 with BrushBelt needs Quick Attach Keeton.) Note: We recommend Quick Attach Keetons for all planter models that they fit — they’re much more robust and trouble-free as compared to the Universals. Universal Brackets now pre-cut by Exapta for full Mojo compatibility & fast install. No liquid capability (='Dry' tail).
