250lbs is hardly over 1/2 of the max downforce recommended on the 7000 deere/2000 kinze units, they are supposed to be able to run at 400lbs. and I’ve been close to that for a few fields in the past. I’ve been trying to keep blade contact to a minimum, ~1” hoping that helps. Otherwise I can’t think of any other options a person can do to try and promote opener life.
