Seeder & Planter Retrofit Upgrades That Get You Better Yields

Coil John Deere 1890 Depth Gauge Wheel & Closing Wheels working on Victorian Property in Australia

Paul Ryan chatting to Brad Jenkinson about the Depth Gauge and Closing Wheels on a property in Victoria, Australia.

We caught up with Brad Jenkinson of Prospect Farm. We wanted to hear his thoughts about the RYAN NT Coil John Deere 1890 Depth Gauge Wheel & Closing Wheel.


Brad works on Bernard Lindsay’s Northern Wimmera property in Warracknabeal, Victoria. Prospect Farm runs a John Deere 1890 with coil depth gauge wheels and closing wheels.


Bernard, Brad’s boss, has been trying the system for three years and recently purchased the latest narrow model.


“We had to put the depth gauge wheels on when it got wet, and if we didn’t have them on, we wouldn’t of got started,” Brad explained.


“They worked really well, and we’re really happy with them.


“Went through some crappy crabholes, and the mud comes out, and they cleaned themselves up pretty well.


“The wheels are going really well.”

A no-brainer addition


Prospect Farm also runs the coil closing wheel with their coil depth gauge wheels.


The coil closing wheel for single disks has an adjustable pitch.


“The closing wheels clean themselves out good,” Brad said.


“You know when it gets really wet, they close it off really well and won’t stick up with mud.”


RYAN NT has the Depth Gauge Wheels and Closing wheels in stock and ready to go if you need them for spring, summer or winter planting.
