Adjustable Furrow Brow for 1996 and newer planters with standard 4.5 inch gauge wheels
This is a new product, and will be limited in supply for 2021. It fills the same need as it's predecessor, the DB-400, with the addition of a knockout in the installation hole to allow the user the to adjust the brow closer to the tire. This could add useable life to Furrow Brows in areas where soils with high sand content wear down the blades of Furrow Brows more quickly than normal. On most Midwestern soils, when planting in good to marginal conditions, the tried and true DB-400s will often outlast the planter. DeereBrow-405s are not recommended as a substitute for replacing severely worn tires, as tire wear usually gives tires a flatter profile. Removing the knock-out will make installation of DB-405s somewhat more difficult.
This Furrow Brow row kit is for all John Deere planters 1996 and newer with standard 4.5 inch tires (your tires will typically measure 4.25-4.5 inches). These planters have a 16mm (looks like 5/8") bolt on the gauge wheel arm pivot. (Note: If your JD 7200 planter has stub shafts for the gauge wheel arms and 12mm (looks like 1/2") bolts, please order "FurrowDeere", not these!) Each row kit includes two Furrow Brows (R&L) with knock-outs to make them adjustable, longer 16mm x 110mm bolts (metric, grade 10.9), plus six bushings to allow for proper alignment over the gauge wheel tire. Each order of 12 rows or more includes a thin wrench which is helpful in installation on the very latest style of John Deere gauge wheel arms. All orders include detailed installation instructions.
