GAUGE WHEEL SCRAPER
he Case IH 1200 planters from 2002 and newer that have the 5/8” X 3” bolt on gauge wheel will accept the Schaffert scraper to clean the gauge wheels of mud.
Prior to 2002 the IH planters had a water pump bearing that was held on the gauge wheel arm with a roll pin. The newer planter cannot have a scraper that is bolted on the outside of the gauge wheel arm because it would interfere with the large transport wheels Case IH put on many of their larger planters, especially the narrow transport and central fill planters.
Schaffert Mfg. Co. has introduced a new scraper that bolts on the inside of the gauge wheel arms on the 2002 and newer planters. This new scraper eliminates the problems associated with the lift and transport wheels on these newer planters.
Schaffert Mfg. Co. has had a gauge wheel scraper for the older Case IH planters for years. The plastic scraper has vertical slotted holes with horizontal holes in the bracket to give a person in and out and up and down movement to fit the gauge wheel tires properly.
These gauge wheel scrapers will give you a clean tire in all wet planting conditions, keeping the planter units from riding out of the ground.
