Gauge Wheel Mud Scrapers
John Deere (Shown) and Kinze Planters

 

Mud buildup on planter gauge wheels can affect planting depth accuracy.

The R K Product gauge wheel mud scraper consists of a pivot bracket, support rod and scraper blade. The pivot bracket is easily clamped to the hub of the gauge wheel arm with a u-bolt. Two milled surfaces provide contact points for hubs of all sizes. Two cone point set screws end up being embedded in the surface of the hub to provide an extremely stable mounting. The pivot bracket provides a clamp mounting point for the upper end of the support rod. Both angular and lateral adjustment is possible. The support rod is located as far back and as far outward as practical so that it will not restrict mud flow.
The scraper blade is made from 3/16 heat treated steel and is easily clamped to the lower end of the support rod. Angular and lateral adjustment is possible at this point also.  In this position the blade can be adjusted to fit most tires including the IH deep profile to relatively flat profiles.

R K Products now has a new scraper blade for each of the three main gauge wheel tire profiles. This allows the blade to be held in one basic position. Minimal adjustment is then required to obtain the closest possible fit between the blade and tire.

The blades are made from 3/16 heat treated steel and are held approximately perpendicular to the tire surface. This allows greater pressure between the blade and tire without gouging. The blade is positioned approximately 45 relative to the wheel. The mud is handled more efficiently by being deflected outward.

The new blades are more tolerant of trash conditions because the 45 angle gives trash a better chance of clearing itself. The closer fit between the blade and tire also reduces voids in which trash can accumulate.

The time proven mounting bracket is easily clamped to the hub of the gauge wheel arm with a U-bolt. Two milled surfaces provide contact with hubs of different sizes. Two cone point set screws are embedded in the surface of the hub to provide an extremely stable mounting.
