Webster County Iowa
Here are some quick pics of the new plates I recieved. Had my agronomist try some seed sizes in them and it looks like they will accept alot of the sizes like they claim.

The regualr part numbner, (not whole goods number) is 700736528
They were $13.88/plate + shipping.

I didnt know they had such a thing. Im heading to the precision planting conference tomorrow and was hoping they would have something great for my white planter this year. I think im going to have to look into getting a set of those.

I'm getting AR2 and AF2 from Dekalb for seed. Do you think it would be worth it to get the discs and swap them out when I get to the AF2 seed? Also, did they say if they have plenty of discs in case there is a large demand for them? TIA

Not sure about supply of them. Alot of dealers don't know about them it seems like. It was my understanding that Precision was looking into doing something but nothing has happend or is planned at this time now. Here is a scan of the bulletion on these disc. From what I could see with my agronomist I believe that some of the smaller rounds will be fine with these, it looks like it will be hard to get doubles in these cells and I was told that their tests have shown a wider range of air pressure can be used.

Subject: Anyone have singulation #'s with these plates?


SE NE
The bulletin doesn't mention air pressure recommendations for different seed sizes. Anyone put these on a meter or anything to see how good/bad they were? After seeing this post I bought a set and have been playing with them in the shed. I have an FMX that tells me the singulation and if I dump 50# rounds in I can get 99% singulation. With 41# flats the singulation keeps roaming around between upper 80's to lower 90's for singulations. I've tried the new plates for flat seed, I've tried the small corn plates, I've replaced the tickler brush, I've removed and added shim's behind the seed plate, changed air pressure and I can't seem to get satisfactory results. I'm starting to really regret accepting the smaller flat seed. Anyone have any singulation number to go with these plates?
