What are the benefits of using an Air Seeder vs. a Planter?

There are many key differences. Air Seeders make seeding more efficient and accurate than a typical planter.  Air Seeders eliminate the need to till the soil before planting. They are known to handle the toughest of terrain.  Air Seeders will volumetrically meter the product right below each tank, whereas a planter will singulate each seed right above the row.

How are your parts different than John Deere?

The biggest difference between John Deere and Air Seeder Parts, LLC are our Stainless-Steel designs. The first Air Seeder Parts, LLC meter housing – The Boss Meter, was designed with the highest quality stainless-steel to provide lasting durability and prevent corrosion. The original Boss Meter, and the Boss Meter 2.0 have proven themselves in quality and performance.

Besides using stainless-steel, enhancements made to our meter housings include individual shutoffs, half-width disconnects, and double wall design.

When your original John Deere meter housing is corroded and not performing, what do you recommend when a farmer inquires about replacement parts?

When a farmer is ready to replace a corroded meter housing, we recommend they replace 3 parts – the transition, meter housing, and manifold.  In our experience, when the meter housing has issues, the transition and gaskets will have issues due to the elements. This affects the pressurization of your tank, which disturbs the outflow. Best practice is to replace the transition when going through the work and expense of replacing the meter housing.

Transition – Transition Kits (A-TRANS415KIT or A-TRANS550KIT)

Meter Housing – We have 2 meter housing options. The BOSS 2.0 Stainless-Steel Meter Housing is a replacement for John Deere Ground Drive Meter Housings on 1900, 1910, & C-Series air carts.  The BOSS 2.0 SC Stainless Steel Meter Housing is a replacement for John Deere SectionCommand™ meter housings on 1910 & C-Series air carts.

Manifold Configuration – Manifolds are available in Single or Double Shoot with 4, 6, or 8 run kits. All components needed for assembly are included with our kits.

 

How long is a typical installation?

Typically, 2-3 days for a first-time installer that is replacing the transition, meter housing, and manifold.  We encourage you to go through a dealer. One of the biggest hurdles is replacing the transition. To reduce frustration and confusion, factory parts should remain in place until the customer has the replacement parts and are ready for install.
