Kinze began installing the EdgeVac seed tube on planters in 2006, and in 2012 it became standard on all new planters. The EdgeVac seed tube which is much larger in size than the older models of Kinze seed tubes. This larger seed tube is a tight fit between the double disc openers. The Rebounder no longer uses the bottom tie strap on the Rebounder, because it will rub on the double disc openers. This prompted Schaffert Mfg. Co. to make a bracket to hold the Rebounder in place without using a tie strap.
The new patent pending bracket is shaped like a horse shoe with a set bolt or screw installed, so that the clip is installed to fit over the Rebounder and on the inside opening at the bottom of the seed tube. There is also a centering bracket that is placed in the Rebounder to keep the Rebounder centered on the seed tube. This centering bracket is held in place with one tie strap at the top of the Rebounder. Once the horse shoe bracket is slid into the end of the seed tube on the back side away from any contact with seed, it is tightened into place with the set bolt or screw.
This new bracket system keeps the Rebounder centered both on the seed tube as well centered in the seed V. The newly designed narrower Rebounder eliminates any vibration of the seed tube, because it is made to lightly touch the side walls of the seed V and not drag seeds. We also have narrower Rebounders for Kinze planters prior to 2012.
