Farm implement planters have been around since 1875 and were originally patented by G.W Brown, these planters were person or horse driven. Thanks to the industrial revolution automated farm implement planters were introduced in the late 19th century. The standard farm implement planter today is towed behind a tractor and ranges from 1 to 48 rows. The chain that goes onto a planter is important because this is the piece of equipment that plants seeds in rows throughout the field.
At farmchains.com we provide high-strength ANSI roller chains that are pre-cut to the original manufactures designated length. We offer both standard steel and corrosion resistant coated versions of the chain. There are many different wordings people use for the coated chain but here at farmchains.com we call it dacromet coated or armor coated. Using a coated roller chain will last much longer because planter chains are exposed to the environment. If you don't see the specific planter chain needed please contact us at 800-648-5429 or email us email@example.com and we will be happy to assist you.
