Precision Planting Finger Meter Parts

All of these Precision Planting Finger Meter parts work well individually but work great when they are combined.

SureFire Seed Belt

The seed belt in your finger meter is often ignored. The belt has a very important job. After the fingers have singulated a seed, the belt has to deliver that seed to the seed tube. The seed needs to be released consistently so that each seed follows the same trajectory down the tube. Current belts hand off the seed on the right, center or left side of the seed tube.

SkipStop Metal Cover

Seed ricochet causes skips:

As seeds are ejected into the belt housing they bounce, rattle and roll inside the chamber often, they ricochet back, causing a skip. SkipStop eliminates the ricochet with a special SkipStop pad that drops seeds onto the seed belt.

This backing plate has big advantages over metal plates. It’s flatter – eliminating the skips that occur as fingers rock and roll over the warped spots on stamped metal plates. It matches seed size – swap inserts and you can change the aggressiveness of the backing plate to match flats and rounds. The smaller exit hole reduces the chances that seeds can ricochet back into the meter.

Adjustable Brush

For small seeds, just adjust the brush closer to the base of the backing plate. That way the brush aggressively reaches under the finger to reduce doubles. Then for larger seeds, adjust the brush away from the base of the backing plate. Now, the softer brush isn’t overly aggressive which can cause skips.

Precision Fingers

Using a high speed camera, we saw existing OEM fingers allowed flat seeds to escape seeds can get pinched against the outer wall round seeds can cluster under a finger Precision Fingers fix all these critical issues.
