Exapta Ninja Seed FlapsExapta’s Ninja flexible seed bounce flap keeps more seeds in the furrow, and is less prone to breakage in the field (less brittle) as compared to OEM or other aftermarket flaps.

 

 

 

Keep Seeds In The Furrow

Ninja flap 1

Exapta’s unique forward bend puts more seeds in the bottom of the furrow.

Close The Gap

Ninja flap 2

Straight, stiff plastic seed flaps (‘tabs’) such as OEM and competitors leave a gap through which seeds can escape...

Ninja: down, forward, no gap

Ninja flap 3

The Ninja flap has a 20-degree forward bend to help close the gap, thus keeping more seeds in the furrow.  The flexibility of the Ninja prevents it from riding up (lifting) on the sidewall like a stiff flap would, which makes the gap bigger on those flaps.

 

The flap, or tab on the seed boot is what keeps seeds from bouncing out of the furrow, and this is even more critical on air drills, since the air stream is also trying to escape and may carry seeds along with it. However, JD & aftermarket flap suppliers use a straight flap, made from materials that are too brittle—often snapping off in the field. The issue with straight flaps is that it leaves a triangular gap for seeds to escape, and this gap gets larger when the straight flaps bend upward during use, due to riding on the sidewall.

The Ninja flap has a 20-degree forward bend to help close this gap, thus keeping more seeds in the furrow. The forward bend helps deflect seeds downward into the furrow bottom before dust and chunks of sidewall fall in ahead of the seed. The flexible material and tapered end prevent the Ninja flap from riding on the sidewall. The result is better seed placement. Ninjas also shed mud better than OEM and competitor tabs, and are proven to have superior wear characteristics — the Ninjas can last at least 5 times longer than OEM or competitors!
