    Guttlers have to come from Wox's as they are the UK importer, can't remember the price but they are good to deal with & include the bolt and spacer to line them up correctly. I would advise also buying a set of weights for them, makes sense to go for the heavier weight, i think from memory it is 20mm thick, then you are only paying one delivery charge.

    image.jpeg Had my JD ones milled, seemed a shame to waste them! Not sure how heavy they are now as didn't weigh one. They work fine in most reasonable conditions. Could still be drilled and weighted if necessary. I think there is a lot of value in getting a heavier helper spring made but haven't persuaded anyone to do it yet. I may Google Spring manufactures and do it myself in time.

    Just a thought for you with regard to springs @RTK Farmer, this is what http://www.excelagr.com.au do with their planter closing wheel spring pressure in Australia, which looks a lot like a JD one.

    can't remember but less than Guttlers, my cousin has an engineering business so he did them for me (at commercial rates). It's not a 5 minute job!

    Not sure how much Wox ones are but the ones I had laser cut were cheaper last time I checked, I do 2 different weights now, have found the 5kg is too much sometimes so do a 2.5kg as well now and swap between them depending on conditions

    Available on www.marketplace.farm now to keep tabs of orders

    I have a plasma cutter that would cut 35mm do you think I could use that to cut down a standard jd closer instead of buying guttlers or milling them ?

    Good now they are weighted. The problem with milling is that you remove some of the weight!. I also think the toothed design maintains better contact with the ground in situations of drilling into big covers with many stalks. The round originals would bridge on the stalks and ground contact would be lost thus not closing the slot as well.
