Designed to be Accurate, Efficient, Effective and Adaptable
With new demands such as no till, hard soils, and sod the SpikeWheel™ has
been designed with strength, durability and in field reliability
in mind. Using the same technology as the spoke wheel the design
of the SpikeWheel ™ adds
capacities for extra down pressure to meet these conditions for
sub surface application.
Enhanced design modifications:
- Streamlined hardened alloy injection points and a 400-pound
down pressure capability enable the SpikeWheel™ to penetrate
even the hardest of soils in no-till applications and other established
grass and hay stands.
- The solid dish design provides superior strength in side
- SpikeWheel contains a precision-machined distribution
hub, which reduces product leakage, increases overall hub life,
and is rebuilt with ease.
- The SpikeWheel's smooth external surface reduces
build-up, tangle, and plugging in high residue, tall crops, and
- The spring arm is able to apply proper down force, control
tracking and alignment and also provides independent protection
from obstacles incurred in field situations such as rocks.
- Sub-surface injection of soil amendments such as surfactants
or wetting agents allows for the utilization of these liquids
without losses caused from outside elements.
The SpikeWheel provides farmers with a precision tool
for fertilizer application. The wheel allows for fertilizer rates
to be decreased up to 30%, as you don’t have to compensate
for volatilization, runoff, and microbial losses. The flexibility
in fertilizer timing in a post-emergent application allows the
plant to be fed when it needs it the most, growing less “luxury” foliage,
and more of the crop that makes you money.
The SpikeWheel fits into minimum till situations extremely
well as it is very low disturbance. In side-band applications,
the wheel does not disturb established root systems, cover young
plants with soil, or create any tillage that may disrupt your growing
crops. In turf and established stand applications, the injection
points not only provide for precision fertilizer placement, but
also act as an aeration tool. The increased versatility in timing
allows the fertilizer package to be matched with crop potential,
considering available moisture, and available nutrients. Learn

In an age of decreasing profit margins in agriculture, input
costs become an important consideration in management decisions.
The SpikeWheel provides farmers with a tool that gets the
best return out of every fertilizer dollar spent. To insure that
