Air Design is introducing a new scraper for John Deere, Kinze, White, and Case-IH planters. The scraper features a unique design with a tungsten carbide edge.

The angle of the tungsten carbide aggressively cleans the disk promoting better seed depth accuracy. It also provides outstanding abrasion resistance to give superior, long lasting performance and thus reduces replacement chores.

The body of the Air Design scrapers is made of stainless steel to resist corrosion and enhance durability. The tungsten carbide used by Air Design in the manufacturing of scrapers is a high quality unground carbide called Wearcarb with a Rockwell hardness of RA92, manufactured by a major U.S. company.

Wearcarb is composed of solid cemented carbides to resist abrasive wear that occurs when two parts are in continual contact. Tungsten carbide has been shown to outlast wear-hardened steel alloys in some applications by a ratio of 100 to 1.

Installing the scrapers is easy. There are no holes to drill and no bolts or other hardware required.

Air Design scrapers fit: JD 1700-30, 1750-80 Series planters, JD 7000, 7100 MaxEmerge Planters, JD 7200, 7300 MaxEmerge Plus planters, Kinze planters, White 6000 Series planters, Case IH 800-900 Series planters.

JD 7000 Series planters and Kinze Planters require the addition of scraper arms and a spring per each planter opener.

Air Design is located in northeastern Montana and was established in 1986. Its first agricultural product was a JD combine fan speed attachment.

Air Design also produces scrapers for several different brands of disk drills.

Air Design planter scrapers demonstrated exceptional results in the very wet planting conditions of 2001.
