I have switched to no till 2 years ago and with regular rubber press wheels on my John Deere 7000 planter the seed trench would only close in perfect soil conditions. I looked at many different press wheel designs and decided to purchase the cast Schaffert mohawks. The job they do, even in wet soil is outstanding. By having the mohawks I was able to plant much earlier than in the past and the seed trench is nice and loose.
