The Copperhead Furrow Cruiser® finally solved the SIDEWALL COMPACTION problem that came with the development of the double disk opening system on modern planters. The "V" created by the opening system on planters causes a compaction zone that is necessary to get the seed down to planting depth. The problem with this is that current stock rubber tires and cast press wheels cannot consistently crumble and firm this soil back around the seed. With inconsistent seed-to-soil contact, emergence takes a hit, and yields suffer. The Furrow Cruiser solves this 50 year...
Founded by Dave Terveen and Kevin Berg in 2008, Copperhead Agricultural Products was born from the idea of solving common farming challenges with new approaches. Our patented Furrow Cruiser and Drill Cruiser planter closing wheels provide farmers with greater control, greater success, and greater yields.
Following the success of our patented planter closing wheels, we expanded our range to offer high quality brackets for updating Case IH closing systems, planter arm conversion kits, and the Cruiser Xtreme, a cast iron version of our Furrow Cruiser planter closing wheel with unbeatable durability.
In August of 2018 we were able to license the patent for an aftermarket concave from the inventor Donnie Estes. We began manufacturing and marketing the Copperhead Concave systems, offering unbeatable durability, versatility and performance to the American farmer.
Just a short while later, in December of 2018, longtime inventor Phil Kester of RK Products decided to retire and asked that we carry on his brand and patents. We were humbled, as Phil is truly a one-of-a-kind person and quickly accepted with the purchase of his company. We moved the inventory from his place in East Moline, IL to our manufacturing facility in Humboldt, SD and got to work learning how to supply a whole new product line to farmers.
We are constantly on the lookout for honest-to-goodness farmer inventions that help farmers make their lives easier, more profitable, or both!! If you have a great idea or know of someone who does, give our sales manager, Jake Jass, a call and tell him about it!
