Schaffert Mfg. offers two types of Rebounders. The Super Tuff orange Rebounder offers enhanced durability while the white Rebounder is more economical choice for shorter-term use.
Super Tuff Orange VS the Original White
What's the Difference?
The Super Tuff Orange Rebounder takes durability to the next level. Easily distinguished by it’s bright orange color, the Super Tuff Orange Rebounder gives you all the benefits of the White Rebounder but can last 2-3 times longer.
We are continually looking for ways to improve our product and one key component that has proven very effective is a new molding technique that we’ve incorporated. With this process, the plastic molecules stand up and act like little springs making the wear of the Super Tuff Orange Rebounder longer and better.
In addition to the greater durability, we have also improved the Y-Not Split-it fastener, with an easy to use on/off screw design—no more need for ties.
How Do I Know Which is Right for Me?
Paul Schaffert has devised this formula: Take the length of the planter or drill bar and add two zeros to it. This gives you the approximate acreage that one can expect out of the White Rebounder. For example: a 12 row 30 planter has a 30′ bar, adding two zeros to the 30 equals 3000 acres, which is a reasonable expectation of the White Rebounders use.
If you are a farmer who has a 12 row planter and plants about 500 acres a year or if you are going to run the planter another year before changing disc blades or trading for a new one, then the White Rebounder will serve your needs.
Used discs that make a narrower seed V opening cause the Super Tuff Orange Rebounder to ride on top of the seed trench for a longer period of time, not allowing it to put the seed in the bottom of the seed V. The White Rebounder will wear down to fit the seed trench better than the Super Tuff Orange when used discs are on the planter.
Our research proves that the Super Tuff Orange Rebounder outlasts the Original White Rebounder 2 to 3 times. However, the White Rebounder remains a valuable add-on for the small acreage farmer or the producer who wants to get one more year out of his disc blades.

- The Super Tuff Orange Rebounder will wear longer, as is visible in the image
- The Original White Rebounder is great for those who plant less acres
