JD 1870 STYLE DRILL PARTS LIST

Vale Industries, and it’s predecessor companies, have been designing, testing and manufacturing ground engaging parts for John Deere 1870 style drills for over 30 years in Western Canada.

As the original inventor of this drill, we designed the parts to work specifically for this application.

Not as a knock off, or close to, or close enough, but specifically for this drill.

With specific positioning of the multiple carbides and hard surfacing, Vale has perfected the openers to provide superior wear characteristics and reduced draft.

The net result for the grower is:

  • Lower cost per acre replacement parts
  • Reduced opener wear
  • Reduced soil disturbance
  • Superior seed/soil contact
  • Faster seed germination and emergence
  • Healthier plants
  • Increased yields

Vale Industries replacement knives, openers, scrapers and packer wheels are the choice replacement parts for 1870 style drill owners today. Download our Black Parts Brochure for more information.

SINGLE ROW SEED OPENERS
  • Clean, narrow one-piece construction results in:
  • Reduced soil accumulation on knife.   Reduced soil disturbance in furrow
  • Lower draft / horsepower requirements. Increased seed / soil contact
  • Faster plant emergence
  • Field research showed a 15% increase in seed emergence compared to paired row openers
  • Single row seed openers are superior on hard, wet or stony soils
