Every Seed. Every Time
In just four years, eSet vacuum meters have become the new standard for seeding accuracy and flexibility. Here’s why:
- Singulate any seed size or shape — there’s no pocket or cell, which means the disk is not seed sensitive.
- Improved seed release — the raised platform means seeds release down the center of the seed tube minimizing seed tube ricochet.
- No adjustments — you get 98.5%+ singulation on almost every seed type without adjusting vac or double eliminators.
- Better seed agitation — seed treatments can inhibit singulation because seeds pack together at the bottom of the meter. eSet has aggressive seed agitation that keeps the seed pool fluid for better loading.
The John Deere cell disc is very sensitive to seed shape because of the pocket. Only a few seed types fit perfectly in the pocket. That’s why you have to keep adjusting vacuum levels to try to suck most seeds against the pocket. With eSets flat disk design, there is not a pocket so flats, rounds, large and small work equally well.
Consistency over all seed types.
These two charts show population variation with eSet and the John Deere meter. Even with the vacuum adjusted for each seed type, the John Deere meter shows wide variation over different seeds and speeds. Notice how the eSet population stays constant over a wide variety of speeds and seed sizes/shapes — all with the same vacuum setting. Compare these results with the Cell Disk. Cell Disk population varies dramatically at different speeds and with different seed sizes and shapes.
Eliminate the guesswork.
The most frustrating thing about current vac disks is that you are always guessing about your vac setting. Too little and you skip. Too much and you double. But your monitor only shows you an average population – so you can’t judge accuracy until your seed emerges.
With eSet, you set your vac and you can plant any seed – even plateless – at 98.6% accuracy or better. If your seed is over 60# per 80,000 seed bag, use 18”. Size, weight, shape, treatments, humidity . . . doesn’t matter. And unlike early flat disk designs, you don’t adjust this singulator. It is designed to float and self correct so it is always in the right place at the right time.
The right release for the right spacing.
We have learned that a lot of the spacing problems you’ve had with your vac disk comes from poor seed release off the disk. Celled disks force the seed to move horizontally before falling toward the seed tube. That means that vac shut off, static and seed position in the cell can alter the timing of the release. And inconsistent release timing means the seed tube ride is inconsistent . . . which means spacing is inconsistent.
