About Inframe Single Press Wheel Swivel Assemblies
Inframe Assemblies are a great option if having the press wheel close to the tyne is desirable without the undesirable affects of a parallelogram or tyne mount. As the Inframe unit is attached on the bar next to the tyne, it is not subject to either tyne movement or vibration. This means a more consistent pressure over the seed and if the optional seeding attachment is used, a more consistent seed depth.

Important considerations when selecting Inframe Assemblies is frame clearance and trash flow. To fit the Inframe units approximately 100mm of available bar must be available either to the left or the right of the tyne.
Inframe units can also be fitted across the rear of the machine. This has proved very successful with Canola growers who also use the optional seeding attachment to spread the canola infront of the press wheel. If fitting to the rear of the machine, it is recommended to have either 12″ or larger spacings or to stagger the unit to help reduce trash build up on the unit.
