Stanhay Repair Shop
For decades, Sutton Ag has specialized in Stanhay planter sales and service. Beginning with the humble and enduring belt planter, and continuing with the modern and innovative vacuum planter, our Stanhay repair shop provides thorough and accurate service, from a quick metering unit tune-up to get your units back in to the field ASAP, to a complete rebuild to get your units looking and operating like new again. We pride ourselves in knowing we’re the preeminent source for Stanhay service.
In more recent years, we’ve expanded beyond just servicing Stanhay units to complete equipment fabrication and repair. From planter shoes, sleds and stacker bars, to small harvesters and accessories, we work directly with growers to build customized equipment. Our in-house planter design and fabrication shop specializes in building your unique equipment to your unique specifications.
Some planting conditions require special packer wheels. We can fabricate packer wheels to practically any specs.
For especially muddy conditions, plastic or rubber scrapers can be added to lessen mud build up on the wheels.
Planter shoes are one of the most important components of precision planting.
We repair shoes for Stanhay planters and fabricate them for a variety of others.
When worn out, single-line shoes can be repaired with durable chromium inserts. In this process, the worn out metal is cut off and the insert is welded in place.
Multi-line shoes can be repaired with UHMW plastic, or long-lasting chromium runners.
Our chromium inserts are adaptable to most planter shoes and can be designed to meet your specific planting needs.
Planter shoes for high density seeders (Seed Spider, Sutton Seeder, Sutton Jr.) are fabricated using chromium inserts, and we've developed a special chromium shoe for use with our Clean Seeder AP units.
Our spray system is made to order. It can be incorporated into the design of your new planter, or it can be added to an existing planter.
Spray shields can be elaborate or simple. Durable, inexpensive shield material can be easily replaced as it wears out.
Seed Planter Sled Fabrication:
Proper planter support and weight distribution are essential for accurate seed placement. This can be achieved through the use of a planter sled.
Planter sleds also provide optimum planter tracking for more accurate cultivation, improved planting depth control, and even greater planting depth control with the addition of bed rollers.
Sleds can be built with numerous options including material applicators, spray systems, walking surfaces, railing, seating, bed shapers, etc.
Our adjustable height planter sleds provide optimum planter support and weight distribution, making your precision equipment even more precise. We custom build every sled to grower specs.
The introduction of the stacker bar has made transportation of large planters much safer and more efficient.
The Sutton Ag Stacker Bar can be made to accommodate practically any size planter.
Stacker bars can be built with numerous options including bed rollers, walker surfaces, railing, seating, storage systems, etc.
Crops that need to be grown on perfectly shaped beds require special bed shaping equipment. We offer bed shapers in a variety of styles.
Bed shapers can be incorporated into the design of a new planter sled.
We fabricate a variety of accessories for Ortomec harvesters including shaker tables, awnings, conveyor systems, water systems, lighting systems, etc.
Our HarvestStar™ push harvester comes with a standard cutting width of up to 28-inches, but can be modified for wider citting widths. We can also modify it to accommodate table top harvest in greenhouses.
At Sutton Ag, we specialize in equipment repair and fabrication for all sizes of farming operations. From small plot trial planters and specialized mini-harvesters, to large commercial scale vacuum planters, we're happy to entertain all requests and uniquely equipped to fulfill most of them.
