The SharkTooth Wheels clear a perfect path
John Simon farms a small acreage near the Rock River in Jefferson County, Wisconsin. Where large-scale producers saw land with little potential for profitability, John was ready for the challenge. With the right management plan, his acreage is reaching its potential.
Part of that management plan was making the switch to no-till. With no-till came the challenges of residue management, and for that,John trusts the SharkTooth® wheels from Yetter. "The SharkTooth wheels clear a perfect path—I don’t even need a coulter."
John’s SharkTooth wheels are mounted to Yetter 2967 Pin Adjust Residue Managers on a John Deere six-row 7200 planter. The SharkTooth wheels replaced the standard finger wheels.
John finds the SharkTooth wheels can handle a wide range of situations. "When I switched to 30-inch row beans, I used the SharkTooth wheels. They never plugged, and they moved just the trash, even in my hilly sections.
"We can’t no-till near the river," John continued. "Where we plow, we get root balls, and the SharkTooth handles those as well."
John, also a salesman of seed for cover crops, recommends the SharkTooth wheels to his customers. "They operate as advertised and have been very durable."
