Precision Planting eSet Vacuum Meter
Every Seed. Every Time.
- Singulate any seed size or shape — there’s no pocket or cell, which means the disk is not seed sensitive.
- Improved seed release — the raised platform means seeds release down the center of the seed tube minimizing seed tube ricochet.
- No adjustments — you get 99.0%+ singulation on almost every seed type without adjusting vac or double eliminators.
- Better seed agitation — seed treatments can inhibit singulation because seeds pack together at the bottom of the meter. eSet has aggressive seed agitation that keeps the seed pool fluid for better loading.
Eliminate the guesswork.
The most frustrating thing about current vac disks is that you are always guessing about your vac setting. Too little and you skip. Too much and you double. But your monitor only shows you an average population – so you can’t judge accuracy until your seed emerges.
With eSet, you set your vac and you can plant any seed – even plateless – at 98.6% accuracy or better. If you seed is over 60# per 80,000 seed bag, use 18”. Size, weight, shape, treatments, humidity . . . doesn’t matter. And unlike early flat disk designs, you don’t adjust this singulator. It is designed to float and self correct so it is always in the right place at the right time.
The right release for the right spacing.
We’ve learned that a lot of the spacing problems you’ve had with your vac disk comes from poor seed release off the disk. Celled disks force the seed to move horizontally before falling toward the seed tube. That means that vac shut off, static and seed position in the cell can alter the timing of the release. And inconsistent release timing means the seed tube ride is inconsistent . . . which means spacing is inconsistent.
eSet vs ProMAX
A two year study of side by side trials across the country reinforce the payoff of eSet compared to the Deere ProMAX system. Eleven growers compared eSet to the Deere ProMAX in side by side yield trials. The results showed a 3 bushel per acre advantage for eSet. At a $3.50 corn market that $10.50 per acre.
