Ingersoll (Canada) opener blade, JD 50/60/90 drills. Dramatically sharper when new, and stay sharp longer than John Deere and most aftermarket blades for these drills in northern USA & Canada (somewhat surprisingly, which brand of blade wears the best varies by geography).

Proven Ingersoll-Canada technology. For these drills, the OEM & almost all other aftermarket opener blades have rather dull edges when new, and they only get duller with use, which hinders the cutting of straw and stalks—resulting in hairpinning, i.e., tucking the residue into the furrow with the seed sandwiched in the middle—as well as poor cutting of the soil itself. Attempting to overcome this requires more down-pressure and frame weight, sometimes a great deal more. Now you can solve much of this problem with Exapta’s drill blade. Same dimensions as OEM new.



Exapta’s blades are made with a stronger proprietary steel formulation by Ingersoll.



Exapta’s Ingersoll on the left, OEM on the right. Stronger steel for sharpness and longevity.



Side-by-side testing typically shows about 25% longer wear life* vs OEM (most aftermarket blades are the same as OEM, or even worse). *in Canada & northern U.S. soils.  (Deere switched from Osmundson to Bellota drill blades circa late 2015, which was an improvement, especially for longevity in southern USA)

“I was pleased with the blades. They didn’t get the blunt edge like competitor blades tend to, which of course is great for performance. I will continue to use them.”

“Your Ingersoll blades were 1/8″ larger diameter than JD blades after one season on the same drill.”

Grassy Lake, AB, Exapta customer since ’07 (JD 1890 & 1895 drills)

“We were very pleased with the Ingersoll blades! They seem to wear much better & starting out with sharp blades is a great help—No hair pinning. The last blades we bought from John Deere were terrible. They were dull & didn’t wear well.”

Joe Swanson

Windom, KS, Exapta customer since '99 (Exapta blades on 1890 JD air drill)

“We had JD, Ingersoll, and Argis blades on an 1850. The blade that wore the most—was the smallest in diameter—was the JD blade, followed by Argis. The Ingersoll blade was the largest in diameter.”
