Scrapping plates

Scrapping Plate

The John Deere family of spindles is the most efficient, high-quality, precision-manufactured spindles available today.

Scrapping plates, in combination with accurately calibrated pressure doors, help ensure a more efficient harvest.

  • Scrapping plates are designed with ridges to allow the tip of the spindle to pass through the low points of the ridges
  • The high points of the ridges push cotton farther onto the spindle
  • The further cotton is pushed onto the spindle, the more likely the cotton will be fully harvested and transferred into the basket or accumulator

Part Number: BN272408 (Scrapping plates for 1-row PRO-16TM unit)

Part Number: BN272418 (Scrapping plates for 1-row PRO-12TM or VariRow System (VRSTM) unit)
