Re: radial bean meters vs shoup/kinze brush meters

I don't know the answer to that question. I have a planter that I purchased knizi brush meters for, and it has the "average" sized discs in it. I know that they are rather fussy in how you store them, and are supposed to be disassembled when done and the discs stored so they stay flat and don't warp.


I have had problems if the beans are slightly out of round, after bean treatments for example, and with larger seed. Creates a nightmare when they plug up with a full box. One good thing, it has taught me that you can get the same yields with much lower stands.


Probably can call a knizi dealer about the bigger beans.
