Subject: Planter Disc Openers


March of 2018  we installed new disc openers and valion seed tube guards  on our Kinze  12-30  2200 planter.    March of 19  we thought that we would not need to change any parts.   He found a line of hard dirt on all the disk openers.   The valions had a worn  groove that matched the dirt ridge.   The planter only ran on 960 acres.   We were expecting several thousand acres before another rebuild.   What went wrong?    How do we avoid the problem for  2019.   Of course  when calling the company  we were told,  "I've never heard of that".
