Air Seeder Blades

Air drills are used to deposit seeds into the soil of farms of all sizes. In the United States, these devices are primarily utilized to plant cotton, corn, canola, rice and beans. The most important component of an air seed drill machine is the air seeder blade, which allows the drill to implant seeds into the soil.

The Blade's Size

The larger the disc's diameter is, the higher the number of seeds that the equipment will be able to release. A blade that is very heavy and thick will be capable of depositing the grain in a much deeper part of the ground than a thin, lightweight disc. Most new blades have a diameter that is between 12 inches and 42 inches.

In order to ensure that all of the crops are able to evenly extract a similar amount of water and nutrients from the soil, you should use sets of blades that have an identical size and weight.

The Benefits of Smaller Blades

Using a relatively compact seed drill blade allows for cutting through moist dirt and tightly packed soil, and these smaller blades are able to plant seeds at a moderate depth more swiftly than their large counterparts.

Tinier blades provide a better angle when slicing through the thick dirt, and they have a reduced level of downward pressure and come into contact with less soil while they are spinning.

Soil Moisture

If you are planting crops on a field that has been recently used to grow a key plant, such as wheat or corn, the reserves of moisture in the soil will be located in a much deeper part of the ground than the water that is in an area that has rarely been farmed. You’ll need to adjust your air seeder machinery to cut deeper in order to utilize the moisture in these soils.

The Material of the Blade

Boron steel is substantially harder than regular steel, yet it is more lightweight than most types of heavy-duty metal. This allows for a longer wear life, with superior penetration and cutting performance.

Replacing the Blade

When the blade wears and has lost a half of an inch of its diameter, you should replace it. Many people focus only on the equipment's size and forget that a tattered blade is much less sharp than newer devices.

The Number of Blades

When using plowshares that feature many single blades, a farmer will have a reduced chance of depositing all of the kernels at the same depth because each of the blades will wear at a different rate. Devices that feature numerous sets of double blades will be able to plant the seeds much more evenly because the seeds will be constantly arranged by every set of devices, and the blades will become dull more slowly. Disc openers, disc blades, air seeder blades and other tillage tools should be replaced at the same time in the same pattern – much like the way tires on an automobile are replaced – to ensure even wear and the best tillage results.
