Rebounder Seed Covers
About the Rebounder!
For over a decade now, the Rebounder has proven to be a sensible solution for farmers nation-wide, not only increasing yields but also overall profits. The Rebounder™ seed cover is a simple but effective planting attachment that improves the accuracy and uniformity of in-furrow seed placement on planters and drills. Season after season, the Rebounder™ seed cover has proven itself to be a small investment that pays large dividends at harvest time.Benefits of the Rebounder!
As the double discs on a planter open a seed V in wetter, heavier soils, they tend to “orange peel” the side wall. Seeds can lodge on the side wall and not get all of the way to the bottom of the seed V. If you dig in the seed trench where the Rebounder has passed, you will find all of the seeds at the bottom of the seed V. The half moon notch in the end of the Rebounder keeps the Rebounder 1/4 - 1/2” off the bottom of the seed V eliminating any seed drag. When mounted to the seed tube, the Rebounder puts less than one pound of pressure on the seed tube when planting. This small amount of pressure in the seed furrow row eliminates mud from building up when planting in heavy, wet textured soils.To find a Rebounder that is right for you, check out Rebounders for Planters and Drills.

Over a decade ago Paul Schaffert CEO of Schaffert Mfg. and 3rd generation farmer in Red Willow County Nebraska was confronted with an issue. As one of the largest Buffalo and Tye dealers in the nation he along with many other farmers was having difficulties with seeds bouncing in the seed trench and completely affecting seed spacing. Paul, after many years of farming, knew the importance of seed spacing and seed depth control management and fully understood that it was one of the most contributing factors to yield performance. As one of the leading No-Till innovators in the state of Nebraska he made it his goal to engineer a product that would address this issue.
After years of testing prototypes (on his own farm) and thousands of hours of testing in the field Paul invented a solution that he knew would address this issue, this was the inauguration of the Rebounder Seed Cover solution. Even his early prototypes had the same distinguishing features you see in today’s internationally distributed Rebounder. The Rebounder became the next generation of innovative products designed and manufactured by Schaffert Mfg. (proudly made in the USA) serving as an extension of the seed tube to reduce the effect of seed bounce and depth control management.
Rebounder Seed Cover is covered by one or more of the following U.S. patents: 5,640,915; 5,918,557; 6,082,275; 6,283,050; 6,453,832, 6,763,773 and 7,121,216.
