“In the winter of 2014/2105, we had opportunity to speak to various farms who have experience with the Devloo Roto Mud Scrapers. The feedback we received was a resounding success from all who were interviewed. This led us to purchase these scrapers for our two Seed Master units operated by my family farm in the Peace district near Spirit River. The soil in this area is clay based and has the drawback of clinging to all styles of packer wheels. For two previous seasons we ran the Seed Master’s without scrapers giving us a variable seed depth due to the additional soil built up on our packer wheels. The spring of 2015 however was a completely different program, as the Devloo Scrapers consistently kept the packers clean and allowed a very even seed depth which was not affected by the soil moisture conditions. These scrapers will absolutely allow an earlier entrance into the fields, even if moisture levels are too high for traditional methods. I have full confidence in the service provided by Mark and his team and feel that we are receiving full value from our purchase of the Devloo Roto Mud Scrapers.”

“The Devloo Roto Mud Scrapers work great! They keep the packer wheels clean so less wear on the tires and seed depth is more consistent. Before I had the scrapers I had a half section of canola on wet, heavy soil and the canola seed was lying on the ground. So when it’s wet the scrapers pay for themselves a couple times. I think the scrapers outlast the air seeder for sure. It should be a standard feature! When there is a problem the Devloos stand 100% behind the product. I think you can start seeding a couple days earlier because with sticky soil they keep your packers clean. They only turn when dirt built up so less wear and tear.”

We seed canola research trials using Seed Hawk openers. Each packer tire is equipped with the Devloo Roto Mud Scraper. The fertilizer shank on the opener brings up extremely moist soil from below. In combination with heavy straw the packer tires would accumulate significant mud and trash buildup in the dark black soil zone of Alberta. Devloo Roto Mud Scrapers provide extremely consistent seed depth control by keeping the surface of the packer tire clean. This consistent depth control is a must in research trials to eliminate variability in plots.

We first purchased our Roto Mud Scrapers in 2013 for our 1999 Seed Hawk. We have farmed with them for three years now and are completely satisfied – they still look like new!
It seems to me that if you have a precision seeder, you must have The Roto Mud Scrapers. If you don’t, you know longer have a precision seeder. In wet or damp soil conditions the packer wheel will get larger with packed on mud without the Roto Mud Scraper, and it disturbs your precision you are planning on. Our packer tires last longer than they did when we used our stationary scrapers – they no longer develop flat spots because the soil builds up and drags the tire over the ground, or damages the side walls.
The level of customer service from Mark and Company is what all farmers expect – courteous, honest, prompt and efficient. Their product allows our equipment to function in the way it was engineered – with precision.
