Are Flo-Rite seed firmers compatible with my planter?

Flo-Rite seed firmers are compatible with the majority of planters including all Kinze prior to 2013; White; New Idea; and Deere 7000, 7200, 1700 series planters. However, they currently are not suitable for Case IH planters. New options will be coming forth in the near future to rectify this.

How long will Flo-Rite seed firmers last?

The answer depends on soil type. In general, a coarser soil will cause more wear on the replaceable wear plate than a finer soil. A hard compact soil will wear the memory polymer arm quicker than a softer soil. Flo-Rite seed firmers will last about twice as long as competitor firmers. However, it is recommended that you replace the wear plate every year for the best performance. Replace the firmer memory polymer arm when down pressure applied is no longer optimal.
