Seeder & Planter Retrofit Upgrades That Get You Better Yields

Spoked Depth Gauge Wheel – Perfect for John Deere Seeders and Planters

RYAN NT has designed a spoked depth gauge wheel that eliminates mud build-up, plants in any conditions and plants on time, any time. This unique depth gauge wheel has a coil wheel rather than a rubber one.

Coil Spoked Depth Gauge Wheel is your rubber wheel alternative

Many of you may have been using a rubber John Deere Spoked Depth Gauge Wheel that plugged up with mud in challenging conditions.


These problems can leave you stuck in the field or shed and give you a yield penalty if you are unlucky enough.


Our coil wheel differentiates us from other well-known brands of spoked planter gauge wheels, such as John Deere, Needham, Mudsmith and Carlisle. The coil depth gauge wheel is available in the USA and Canada and has performed outstandingly in gumbo soils and corn crop residue.

How to take your Disk Planting and Seeding to the next level

Our latest Spoked Depth Gauge Wheel is perfect for disk planters and seeders, as we have taken our system to the next level.


Firstly, we have implemented three spokes to provide extra cleaning. We also have a coil wheel that goes over the rim rather than a rubber one.


The RYAN NT system means you cannot only clean on the inside but also on the outside.

The coil wheel will provide much better and more consistent seeding depth on your disk planter, as there is much less mud plugging up on the wheel.

Self-cleaning depth gauge wheel that also cleans your disk

Our Spoked Depth Gauge wheel continually flexes, to shed the mud and give you a cushion for a smoother ride.


Any mud build-up on the cast rim and coil will be self-cleaned due to the spoked gauge wheels design.


There are also nylon pads on each point where the coil meets the rim, protecting the coil and rim from wear and allowing for further self-cleaning.


Notably, the gauge wheel rim has a chamfered edge that will cut the mud from your disk.


These self-cleaning features will keep you in the field much longer than the rubber wheels you have been using.


Another benefit you can achieve with the coils is keeping crop residues standing. When crop residues pass through the coils, this will also help with your depth control.

Our Depth Gauge Wheel is Narrow in design

The RYAN NT Coil Depth Gauge Wheel is narrow, meaning the wheel can drop into soil depressions, allowing you to achieve more consistency and precision seeding depth.


Further, your old wheels tracks won’t interfere with your depth control and seed placement like they would with the conventional wide depth gauge wheels.


Our narrow depth gauge wheels won’t run on previous rows crop residue, which is an issue with wide ones. It’s known that wide wheels can cause the unit to ‘bounce’, leading to inconsistent seed placement and poor or uneven germination. If you’re trying to run between winter crop residue rows, this could be an issue for you.

Remove bounce and sow at higher speeds

You may also see the benefits of sowing at higher speeds with this coil wheel due to the cushioning factor provided by the coil.


Many of our farmers, especially those using John Deere Depth Gauge Wheels, have talked about going a couple of miles an hour faster with our wheel.


This benefit is because you are not getting the bounce; ultimately, this means better seed placement. It’s all about productivity with RYAN NT, and that’s our number one priority.


We truly believe we can give you much more time in the field. Early morning starts, or late in the evenings and on wet days, this wheel will keep you going.
