I have been thinking that there must be a low cost way to add section control to planters and seed drills that aren’t equipped with the nessasary clutches.
Of course we could buy the over the counter products but if agopengps has shown me anything it’s that all that over over priced.
I was thinking using. Simple 12v cluch similar to what’s used on a a/c pully. I haven’t thought through the details but something like this link below might work.
If it could Handle the torque loading I would try to mount it on the jd 750 no till drill. Witch would only have 2 sections but still would be great at the headlands and on angle corners. But also would be great on the 6300 white 12 row planter.
Has anyone tried this or had a better option for a cluch?
@Mueller yes, each section has it’s own drive (ground driven) that is activated by each section’s hydraulic cylinder when the shovels are lowered to the ground. It’s the same as the old press drills if you are familiar with them.
