Closing Wheel Alternative to Stock Wheels on CASE-IH SDX Drills in No-Till Application

May Wes has always been an innovator of the Ag equipment after-market
components by leveraging expertise in UHMW Polyethylene material.  The May Wes Solid Closing Wheels are an example
of this innovation.

Their closing wheels are produced with UHMW
poly  material and compression molding
process which result in a durable wheel. This solid construction is superior
compared to the OEM closing wheels that are molded as halves or made of steel.

UHMW poly material is exceedingly strong and rigid…far
more durable than rubber.   The May Wes
Closing Wheels will flex when encountering obstacles and will return to their
original molded position because of the materials ‘shape memory’
properties.   The non-stick surface of
the poly material helps keep the wheel cleaner than factory steel wheels.   May Wes Solid Closing Wheels will not break
or corrode. 

A first-hand account
of the May Wes Closing Wheel compared to the OEM:

“I have a Case IH SDX 40 air seeder
and had to replace up to 12 of the OEM closing wheel a day!  My dealer
recommended going with an alternative closing wheel from May Wes.  These
new solid smooth poly closing wheels were remarkable.  I couldn’t believe
the results.  I have run with these for 2 years now without any broken wheels.  I have since got a bigger
air seeder and immediately switched the closing wheels to May Wes’s.  I’d
highly recommend this product!”  Mark Rorbach, Bowdle, SD

May Wes Solid Closing Wheels come in two sizes: 10” and 12”
