David is here today picking up 12 rows of Mohawk Complete closing wheels. He mentioned he has run rebounders over 20 years on John Deere planters. David started out with white rebounders; he has now upgraded to high-speed running the orange rebounder. David likes the orange rebounders because they knock the loose dirt in over the seed and places his fertilizer, that he runs 5 gallons per acre, in the furrow.
We have recently ordered a part that was really needed, and Schaffert Mfg. took the liberty of sending the part overnight, and we received it the next morning. The part was sent from Nebraska to Michigan. This action is a great sign of outstanding customer service and is very appreciated.
My family farms in the central Texas Blackland’s, we have been running the rebounders for about 12 years now. Before we put them on you would be walking behind the planter and find seeds on top of the ground. After we installed the rebounders, that was eliminated, keeping the seed in the bottom of the trench properly placed. We have tried other firmers before, none have done the job that the rebounders have produced. Would highly recommend them to any fellow farmer.
I farm in Central Texas, dryland conditions and installed the dual banded 2x2x2 stainless steel fertilizer tubes on Case IH 1200 planter for first time last year and was very impressed. Raised the best corn crop overall ever, had the most even corn and consistent yields across fields. My neighbor even ask me what I had done this year and if I would do the same thing and plant his corn the following year. In the past had operated with a pre-plant fertilizer application, 3-5 gallons pop-up fertilizer in furrow on the seed, and then a sidedress nitrogen & sulfur application. This past year decided to cut out two trips across the field and cut out the pop-up fertilizer, ran all the fertilizer through the dual banded tubes for a total savings on fertilizer cuts and trips of about $50 per acre. I applied 118 lbs of nitrogen with phosphorus, sulfur, and micros all through the planter and dual banded tubes; no preplant, no pop-up, and no sidedress. Seed representative weigh wagon tested 148.8 bpa yields. Early fertilizer placement close to the root zone is critical for plant energy and getting more nutrients into the plant. Saving cost and raising better crops is a win-win situation for me and will be continuing to do this in the future along with more products from Schaffert Manufacturing.
I have Schaffert Mohawk closing wheels and was having trouble with a air pocket above the seed when planting a little wetter conditions, I thought it was the press wheels not doing a good job. I talked to Paul and watched a video on how to level the planter. I listened to the manufacturer on leveling the tongue when I needed to get the row unit level. I did exactly that and it was closing like a dream.
Last winter you were kind enough to spend time explaining the operating principles and benefits of your 4-Link Closers and Rebounders. Having started no-tilling in 1972 (under variable and adverse soil conditions), I have a deep appreciation for products that perform under challenging circumstances.
Thank you for your personal service and outstanding products!
The tech support has been the best part. When you call with a question you can actually talk to the owner.
If your’re looking for versitility on your planter at a reasonable price, I recommend checking in to Schaffert products.
Thanks for all your help getting me started originally, and I appreciate all you do if I have questions or need parts. It’s nice to have a manufacturer that works hard to make their product work no matter what your situation is. Great products, great company.
I want to very sincerely thank you for delivering the balance of our order last Saturday. I can’t tell you how impressed I was with that action!
I seem to spend a disproportionate amount of my life arguing with people over how they are going to correct their mistakes. In this case, I would not even classify it as a mistake. We simply had a miscommunication and you still went the extra mile to get me what I needed. I will remember that
I have never had any better service from any company than Schaffert Manufacturing.
If you call with a question, you can usually talk to Paul, the owner. Or if you have any problems with any of their products, they are handled very quickly, and more than fairly.
If every company in the agriculture sector built as good of products, and stood behind them like this company does, my job as a producer would be much easier and more profitable.
