How will they work for turning the points?

I don't run the knock on's but I was told you swap them top to bottom to wear evenly or keep them sharp ?

I used them for a number of years and got on really well. 5 mins to change and lasted substantially longer than anything else at the time. Tungsten has been a step forward.

I run standard kv reversible points I take 100 acres out of them turn them at 50 acre swap them at 100 and get another 100 acre as a wear block on the end if the landslide . 15 mins changes them with rattle gun

I found the knock on ones were expensive to run and too wide they wouldn't go in and stay in during a dry season

It shows the difference in soils... as I've had over 100 out of my reversible points and they haven't been swapped and it has only just worn to the point it has smoothed the front angled top edge out. Unless you are talking acres per furrow and mean 1000acres on a five furrow reversible for the 100acre lifespan per point?

No 100 acres a set and they're starting to pull through the bolt holes on stones.

I could get 140 ish at most but taking them off at 100 and using them as wear plates fairly saves the landslide

Despite an average growing year for most crops, many growers managed to go above and beyond their predicted max yields, with Lincolnshire grower Tim Lamyman taking the top spots for his wheat yields and his world record breaking winter barley yield.

The highest cereal and oilseed yields achieved at harvest 2021 were announced at this year’s Yield Enhancement Network (YEN) Awards on Wednesday 24th November at the Croptec Show. With award presentations by Tom Bradshaw, Vice President of NFU, 24 farms took home the evening’s top awards for highest yield and highest potential yield achieved for wheat, winter and spring barley, oats, and oilseed. The 2021 winners came from all corners of the UK, as well as from as far afield as Finland and New Zealand.
