Agricultural adjustable closing tool for use with a cutting implement

Image Number 4 for United States Patent #5957219.

A system for opening and closing ground has a coulter blade for cutting and opening the ground at a first angle to create an angled furrow, and a closing wheel for following the coulter blade for closing the ground. The closing wheel is inclined relative to the ground and engages the ground at a second different angle. The closing wheel is adjustable in height relative to the coulter blade at a plurality of heights. In use, in all adjustable positions the angles and the relative position of the coulter blade and the closing wheel are maintained such that the closing wheel engages the ground substantially in the line of travel of the coulter and closes the furrow cut by the latter.
