30.5-cm (12-in.) Perma-Loc sweep and boot

When yield-robbing weeds threaten bottom-line profitability and mechanical weed control is an option, the Perma-Loc sweep is the solution.
 
Perma-Loc sweeps not only eradicate weeds at the seeding and deliver a wider seed spread, enabling the crop to outcomplete the enemy, they also save valuable time and money. In fact, Perma-Loc sweeps change-out up to five times faster than conventional bolt-on sweeps.
 
Plus, no more purchasing hardware each time sweeps are changed out. This can save $309 when changing out the sweeps on a 18.3-m (60-ft) tool with 11.4-cm (7.5-in.) spacing.

NOTES:
1. Perma-Loc sweeps are not included in base equipment and must be ordered separately.
2. Perma-Loc sweeps are not recommended to be used on the 1835, due to excessive soil throw and no harrow availability with this model.
Harrow recommended with sweeps
 
Soil displacement from sweeps over neighboring seed rows can cause variation in seeding depth.  Equipping an 1830 with the optional two-bar harrow helps level the seedbed before packing, ensuring an even distribution of soil over all the seed rows. 
 
NOTES: 
1. Not recommended for seeding into surface residue levels exceeding 35 percent.
2. 1835 cannot be equipped with two-bar harrow since the front rank is dedicated to separate fertilizer placement (SFP) openers.
