Closing Wheels

Our closing wheels prevent crusting and baking by leaving a soft mulch on top of the seedbed. And there’s no need to worry about the seed trench opening back up, either. With our patented “horizontal rod” design and wide ground path, Posi-Close Wheels literally destroy the seed trench. They also virtually eliminate any chance of smearing or extreme compaction, creating an excellent seed-to-soil contact. Our wheels are designed to be adjustable for width, giving you a greater ability to close even the most stubborn seed trenches.

  • Product Information


Existing OEM hardware and spacers may be reused, so mounting hardware is only needed/included where specified.



  • John Deere MaxEmerge2 7200, 7300, & early 1700 series

The wheels are mounted over a shaft on the tailpiece and are held on with left and right hand nuts. The original dust cap may be used with these wheels.

Note: Some planters have been updated to newer cast iron tailpieces and require PW-193NT (see below). Please call us if you have any questions and we will be happy to find the correct wheel for your specific planter.

  • MaxEmerge 7000-7100 John Deere
  • Kinze (1965-1992)

The wheels are attached via the bearing spindle sliding into a tube on the tailpiece and are fastened with 1/4″ roll pins.  Note:  Some planters have been updated to newer tailpieces and require PW-193NT.  If your tailpieces are worn out, we highly recommend you update to newer aftermarket tailpieces.

Note: Wheels do include hardware shown below to bolt the center hub to outer ring.


  • Case-IH 800-900 & 1200 Series
  • Great Plains – Yield-Pro Planters
  • John Deere – MaxEmerge PLUS, XP, PRO
  • Kinze – 1993-Present
  • Monosem
  • White – 5000, 6000 & 8000 Series
  • Includes most 1700 series planters made from late 1990’s to current.

The wheels are attached to the planter with a 5/8″or 16mm bolt with spacers/washers to adjust spacing.

Note: Some early 1700 MaxEmerge 2 series planters require different wheels. Max Emerge (7000-7100) and MaxEmerge 2 (7200-7300 – early 1700) that have upgraded tailpieces will usually use this wheel style.

Note: White Planters with a SINGLE WIDE closing wheel system will not work with Posi Close Wheels. We recommend converting the planter to the “V” style dual wheel system.  We do not carry a conversion kit for White, however, one can be obtained through your local White dealer. Once single wheel systems are converted, PW-193NT wheels will fit onto the planter. 

Note: 5000 Series single wheel planters are required to order an adaptor bracket to facilitate our closing wheels. The bracket is available from S.I. Distributing (800-368-7773) part number #PLT125001.


  • Case-IH 800-900 & 1200 Series

These planters have a single wide closing wheel system, and must be converted to the “V” style dual wheel system to accommodate our Posi Close Wheels. Conversion can be done via our PW-293 kit. The kit requires removal of existing arms and wheel. It can, however, be used with or without the original planter closing disks.

Note: Order one conversion kit and one pair of wheels per row. Mounting hardware for the wheels is included in the conversion kit.


Three settings allow you to customize your wheels to work in a variety of soil conditions. 

  • Standard Setting- for most conditions
  • Meshed Setting- for a more aggressive closing of the seed trench. This concentrates the wheel’s force on a smaller area and eliminates the need for drag chains
  • Swapped Setting- the most aggressive setting for tough soil conditions

*Check out our “How To” video to see the mounting instructions for each setting.
