Very Durable – Long Lasting – Great Products! ~ Tom Entz, Field Boss, Carmichael Farming Company, Carmichael, Saskatchewan
” We have used VW drill points in our farming company for thirty years. Very durable – long lasting – great products. We are very satisfied with our VW drill points. “


Outlast Harmon Parts Up To 10 To 1! ~ Derek, Stroh, Christopher Lake, Saskatchewan
” We use VW Drill Points because it looks to us like they Outlast Harmon parts up to 10 to 1!”


VW Drill Points Lasted Over 10 Times As Long As Harmon Points ~ Larry, Baerg, New Norway, Alberta
” We use VW Drill Points and love them! Our VW Drill points lasted over 10 times as long as Harmon points. We have just recently purchased a New Drill and are looking at equipping it with VW products.”


Excellent Carbide Placement And Wear! ~ Daryl, Mastel, Liebenthal, Saskatchewan
” I have been using VWJD1890SB Seed Boots with carbide on the wear edge and scraper edge for my 1890 John Deere Disc Drill. I am on my third set of disc’s and still no wear on the boot. Excellent carbide placement and wear! Highly recommend!”


Little To No Wear After 3700 Acres! ~ Merlin, Peterson, Oyen, Alberta
” I use the VW14FB openers with the VW11FC full carbide points. I have seen little to no wear on these points after 3700 acres. VW Warranty Service is great, if a carbide happens to come off they will replace it in the off-season. I highly recommend VW Manufacturing Ltd.”


Stand Up Very Well In Our Tough Conditions. We Know Our Next Set Of Drill Points Will Be Vw Manufacturing! ~ Joe, Field Boss, Hutterville Colony, Magrath, Alberta
” After 8 years and approximately 40,000 acres, we still have some of the original VW10FC drill points on our drill. These openers stand up very well in our tough conditions. We know our next set of drill points will be VW Manufacturing. “


In 40 Years – I Have Seen Them All – The Vw Paired Row Triple Shoot Opener Is My Pick! ~ Report/Writer in one of North Americas leading agricultural newspapers
” In 40 years of writing and reporting on seed and fertilizer openers – and I have seen them all – the VW Paired Row Triple Shoot Opener is my pick. In my opinion the choice is clear. It is all about location – location – location! “


They Make A Perfect Seed Bed! These Points Stay In The Ground, Maintain Their Width, And Are Extremely Durable! ~ Jim Curran, Shelbrook, Saskatchewan
” We seed approx. 7500 acres a year with 2 air drills. We use VW Mfg. full carbide drill points on our drill: one with VW10FC and one with VW11FC. We have tried other drill points and find the VW Mfg. drill points to work extremely well. They make a perfect seed bed. The carbide does all the work all the time. These points stay in the ground all the time, maintain their width and are extremely durable. We feel we are producing a minimum of 2 bushels more per acre using the VW Mfg. drill points. Over 5 years using $8 per bushel as an average price per bushel, this is very important. “


Excellent Dealer Service! With These Drill Points, Even Hard Packed Trails In The Field Can Be Sowed! ~ Dale Schwabb, Meyronne, Saskatchewan
” We own a Harmon air drill. Being a lighter drill causes problems in hard packed ground. The VWHC2 carbide drill point has eliminated any penetration problem. With these drill points, even hard packed trails in the field can be sowed. After the first season of use, I see no wear. Expected acreage 15,000-20,000 acres and most of our land is abrasive. Also, excellent dealer service. “


Excellent Penetration; No Wear After 1500 Acres ~ Todd Coverdale, Warner, Alberta
” We used the VW5FC full carbide spoons in the wheel tracks on our Bourgault air drill. We had excellent penetration; no wear after 1500 acres. The rest of our chromium tipped spoons were long since worn out. These spoons look like they will outlast many sets of chromium tipped regular spoons. We are equipping the rest of our drill with these carbide spoons for spring. “


Super Penetration With No Breakage, These Full Carbide Points Made A Perfect Seed Bed ~ Bing Sulz, Medicine Hat, Alberta
” At my farm at Golden Prairie, we used the VW12FC. These full carbide points made a perfect seed bed. There was super penetration with no breakage. They cut right through the hard compacted areas such as the hard packed truck trails in the field. I would highly recommend these full carbide drill points. “


Great Germination And Uniform Emergence, Almost No Noticeable Wear ~ Gordon Bishop , Langdon, Alberta
” My son Geoff and I farm 3,000 acres just east of Calgary. We seed with a Felxicoil 5000 air drill, single shoot. We found the openers to produce an excellent seed bed at a consistent seed depth that resulted in great germination and uniform emergence. Upon completion of seeding there was almost no noticeable wear on the openers, which makes us think we will get many years of service from them. Our old openers would require replacing at the end of each season. Vic was very accommodating in service and getting us our new points in a timely manner. He also phoned us to ask how the points were performing. This level of service is very much appreciated. “


Service Was Great! We Feel This Tip Doesn’t Disturb Soil As Much As Some Competitors ~ Henry Kleinsasser, Bench Colony, Shaunavon, Saskatchewan
” We at Bench Colony, used the VW10FC points from VW Manufacturing Ltd. It seemed to penetrate really well! The impressive part is the way this tip wears-real uniform. We feel this tip doesn’t disturb soil as much as some competitors. Service was great. “


Cost Per Acre Value Of These Points Is Heads And Tails Above Any Non-Carbide Product ~ d Cole, Chester, Montana
” This is in north central Montana, just 50 miles south of the Canadian border. We’ve used the WW7C carbide point from VW Manufacturing, Ltd. for a few years now and have approximately 18,000 acres on these points. Over the past couple of seasons, we have had some very dry, hard soil conditions to seed fall winter wheat into, but have been able to keep a very consistent depth on our Flexicoil drill. The wear and penetrating ability of these points is outstanding-can easily see another 10,000 to 15,000 acres on these points! The cost per acre value of these points is heads and tails above any non-carbide product, and I would recommend any VW Manufacturing Ltd. product to fellow producers “


Vw10fc Drill Points Were Very Durable. The Vw Manufacturing Service Has Been Excellent! ~ Warren Hilz, Hilz Farms, Vulcan, Alberta
” We seeded our 8,000 acres this year with the VW10FC in various soil types. Germination and emergence was very good. The VW10FC drill points were very durable and will be long lasting. The VW Manufacturing Ltd service has been excellent. “


Points Stay In The Ground Instead Of Riding On Top ~ Eli Wipf, Twilight Colony & Homeland Colony, Falher, Alberta
” Our farms are in Falher, Alberta, in the Whitemud area. For the time being, both farms are worked and operated as one group. We seed approximately 22,000 acres. Within these acres, we have some gumbo as well as some sandy soil, both with some rocks. We have been using different varieties of drill points. Until using VW Manufacturing Ltd. drill points, we were never satisfied with the wear on the points as well we had breakage problems. When you have a good seed placement, that produces good emergence, and the crop is healthier. This solves a lot of problems you don’t have to deal with. Without carbide on the points, we would never be able to achieve this. What we find with these points is they stay in the ground instead of riding on top. The sharp carbide drill points remain sharp placing your seed where you want to be. “


After Seeding 3,000 Acres, There Was No Wear! ~ Jacob Hofer, Hillview Colony, Rosebud, Alberta
” Our farm is located 5 miles north of Rosebud Alberta. We seed 6,400 acres of cereals and canola in dark brown soil with two Bourgeault Air Drills with midrow banders. After installing VW10FC carbide drill points on one air seeder last spring, we seeded 3,000 acres and we found the VW10FC points penetrate hard ground. After seeding 3,000 acres there was no wear. They look like they will last for 15,000 acres. I am installing these points on our second drill this spring. I would recommend these points to others. VW Manufacturing Ltd has good service and good prices for good products. “


The Seed Spread Was Excellent, Giving Us A Full 3″ Band. We Have Never Had Such Fast Emergence On Canola Before Using These Openers! ~ Alan and Gord Carr, Delisle, Saskatchewan
” We crop 3,000 and last spring we tried a set of VW10FC openers with carbide wings and on our 40′ Flexi Coil5000HD air drill. We found the soil flowed up and over the opener very well. They gave a uniform seeding depth, even when penetrating hard ground where we turn on our head land. The seed spread was excellent, giving us a full 3″ band. We have never had such fast emergence on canola before using these openers. “


The Service You Get From Vw Manufacturing Ltd. Is Quality Workmanship And Honesty ~ Kelly Deters
” My total farm is 5,100 acres with 3,500 acres being lighter sandy abrasive soil and the remaining acres are heavy clay. I have used VW points for four years starting with the carbide on the nose only. These were better than the original flexi-coil gumbo tips that would wear out in approximately 1000 acres. Then I went to the VW8FC points with carbide on the wings. These were better, but now I am using the VW10FC with heavy carbide on the nose and wings. I can see these tips lasting 40-50,000 acres. I tried them on half of my air drill – a JD 1820-52 ft. behind the tractor and I saw no wear in my season. Another plus was in the heavy gumbo land the VW10FC moved enough soil that there was no plugging of the seed boot. With the older VW points I had plugging in the mud as this spring was extremely wet on the heavy soils. The scouring of the points is as good or better than any other points I have used in the past, even in gumbo when nothing really worked well. The service you get from VW Manufacturing Ltd is quality workmanship and honesty. If there were to be a problem, it will be fixed. I had some failure of tips with carbide falling off due to heavy rocks and VW Manufacturing fixed or replaced these tips with no charge to me. It would be nice if all companies respond to problems with this attitude. I will be ordering more VW10FC drill points to finish off my drill for next season. PS: These VW10FC full carbide drill points might last longer than I think. Except for behind the tractor tracks, I may never have to replace the tip again. Thank you. “


Along With The Openers The Integrity Of Vw Manufacturing Has Been Outstanding! ~ Tom Vavrek, Grande Prairie, Alberta
” We crop 2,000 acres a year in the peace county in Alberta. Our farm is seven miles west of Sexsmith or 27 miles north of Grand Prairie. Our soil type is mostly grey although we have land that is deep black and heavy grey gumbo and land that is blue sticky gumbo to brown gumbo. We have some really tough land to seed and it is difficult to get consistent depth control. We seed with a FlexicoIl 5000 45 foot air drill with a 9 inch spacing. We used a 3.5 inch stealth spread tip and I found that if I put them on brand new, I was consistent in our tough land for the first 1,300 acres. In cereals, it was not a big problem but in canola, I was in trouble. After the 1,300 acres, I would be moving tips from the wings to the tractor and drill tracks with not much improvement. We finally put points with carbide tips from VW Manufacturing Ltd on and my drill was much more consistent from wings to tractor to drill tracks. I put the VW Manufacturing points on half way through seeding, and I have since sown 3,000 acres and there is virtually no wear. With these tips it looks like we will be seeding with even depth and not changing tips for a long time. These tips could be good for 12,000 acres if I compare the wear on them to the chrome openers I used before. We have also tried a new tip from VW Manufacturing, this tip has carbide on the top side of the wings instead of the bottom side. I used this tip for 1000 acres behind the drill and tractor tracks and noticed very good penetration and virtually no wear. I think that this tip has very good prospects and will probably wear longer than the VW8FC tips we now run. This tip could very possibly exceed the 12000 acre mark. Along with the openers the integrity of Vic Wickstrom and VW Manufacturing has been outstanding. Vic’s continuous support and follow up on the product has been great. “


Worked Great – Perfect Germination – Very Even Emergence. Very Satisfied – Vw Service Best I’ve Had In 40 Years Farming! ~ Allan Godenir, Ponteix, Saskatchewan
” We used the VW Paired Row Openers this spring. Worked great – perfect germination – very even emergence. Very aggressive and easy pulling. Paired Row very distinct – very visible. Plants have lots of ‘room to grow’. Very satisfied – VW service best I’ve had in 40 years farming. Thank you VW “


Very Impressed! We Are Looking Forward To Seeding This Spring! ~ Brian Oster Golden Prairie, Saskatchewan
” We demoed VW30PR Triple Shoot Opener on our Harmon Air Drill. I was very impressed with the field finish. The soil flow and the seed bed created by the opener. We are looking forward to seeding this spring with our new VW30PR Triple Shoot Openers. “


Excellent Germination. No Breakage Or Carbide Loss. Approximately 5,000 Acres – Basically No Wear! ~ Wilfred Scherger, Liebenthal, Saskatchewan
” Excellent germination. No breakage or carbide loss. Regardless of the colour of the drill, it is what is in the ground that counts! I recommend any VW product. Approximately 5,000 acres – basically no wear. “


Excellent Opener – Easy Pulling – Perfect Seeding Job – Seed Bed And Field Finish – No Stooks!! ~ Rueben, Field Boss, Starbrite Farming Co., Foremost, Alberta
” We used the VW Paired Row Triple Shoot Openers this spring on our Morris Contour 1 drills. All around excellent opener – easy pulling – perfect seeding job – seed bed and field finish – no stooks!! 13,000 acres. VW service very good. “


Treat Yourself To A Product That Takes Some Stress Out Of Farming! We Highly Recommend V.W. Manufacturing Ltd.! ~ Clint & Gail Schafer, Brownlee, Saskatchewan
” We have used these points for the past three years and are very impressed. The quality is excellent at reasonable price. Products have always been shipped to us so quickly. We also have used the side plates with the same good results. VW Manufacturing’s products are excellent and we will continue to use them. Treat yourself to a product that takes some stress out of farming! We highly recommend V.W. Manufacturing Ltd.! “


Last Up To 15 Times Longer Than Regular Spoons. I Have Peace Of Mind, Knowing These Full Carbide Spoons Are Cutting All The Time And Always Maintain Their Full ~ Devon Watling, Manville, Alberta
” In 2008, I equipped my Bourgault air drill with VW5FC full carbide spoons. After this year’s seeding, there was virtually no wear on these points. I think these could last up to 15 times longer than regular spoons. These points are a tremendous time saver – no changing spoons all the time. I have peace of mind, knowing these full carbide spoons are cutting all the time and always maintain their full width. “


I Found Vw Manufacturing’s Pricing To Be The Price Leader. It Just Blows The Competition Away! ~ Brent & Ernie Kobbert, Hines Creek, Alberta
” In 2008, while looking for full carbide drill points, I found just what I wanted – VW Manufacturing’s VW12FC. This 3 inch opener is just what I wanted to qualify for carbon credits. I found VW Manufacturing’s pricing to be the price leader. It just blows the competition away! Penetration was totally consistent at all times; no adjusting needed. After 6000 acres, the VW12FC looked virtually new. We had one small carbide chip on one point. VW Manufacturing stands behind their products, because VW replaced the missing carbide at no cost to us. “


Get Considerably More Acres Out Of These Drill Points Than Others. We Have Had No Carbide Loss And No Breakage ~ Kim Waiting, Limerick, Saskatchewan
” We have used the VWHC1 for a number of years. We have had no carbide loss and no breakage. We get considerably more acres out of these drill points than others. “


I Have Found That The Vw7cc To Have The Best Wear Resistance ~ Curtis Argue, Argue Farms, Swift Current, Saskatchewan
” My total farm acreage is 6000 acres. I have bought and tried various points and have found out that the VW7CC – with the 2 pieces of carbide – from VW Manufacturing Ltd. to have the best wear resistance. We have seeded for 2 years with the same set of points. Likely we will be get a third season. “


Very Impressed With The Point’s Ability To Penetrate And Keep A Consistent Depth And Seed Placement Pattern ~ Alan Skari, Chester, Montana
” I started using the VW8C carbide tip from VW Manufacturing, Ltd. I have been consistently getting 6,000-7,000 acres in the wheel tracks, and about double that on the wings of my Flexicoil drills. My farm in north-central Montana has moderately abrasive soils, and the past few years have presented some dry and hard conditions during fall seeding. I am very impressed with the point’s ability to penetrate and keep a consistent depth and seed placement pattern even in these tough conditions. I have also tried the new VW10FC full carbide point in my wheel tracks, and am very impressed. I am seriously considering a change to these points when it is time. “


I Find That Emergence And Germination Are Excellent! ~ Eliot Haynie, Vida, Montana
” My farm is located near the town of Wolfpoint. The total acreage of my farm is 3,100 acres. I have seeded 2,900 acres this year to winter wheat, spring wheat and peas. My land is glaciated vida-zahill complex with 2 to 8 percent slopes with a mixture of zahill loam with 8 to 15 percent slopes. I have used the VW10FC carbide points and find that the emergence and germination are excellent. I find the VW10FC wear very well due to the carbide on the tip and leading edges of the wings in our abrasive soils. The service from VW Manufacturing has been great. “


We Have Been Very Satisfied With The Service From Vw Manufacturing Ltd And Are Looking Forward To Doing Business With Them In The Future ~ Richard Seward, Bradkor Farms, Foremost, Alberta
” My two sons and I crop 18,000 acres near Foremost Alberta. We have tried different points over the last few years. With our abrasive soil and some rocky conditions, we were finding premature wear on our points and had problems with the carbide breaking off. This spring Vic from VW Manufacturing let us try the new VW10FC full carbide point. Each of our drills seed 4,500-5,000 acres each year and at the end of the season three was very little wear on these points—even behind the tractor tracks. We didn’t lose any carbide and we were happy with the seed spread and emergence. We are hoping to get 3 to 4 seasons out of these points. We have been very satisfied with the service from VW Manufacturing Ltd and are looking forward to doing business with them in the future. “


Excellent Results! We Are Very Satisfied With The Performance Of These Points And With The Service Of Vw Manufacturing Ltd. ~ Irwin Kuhn, Acadia Valley, Alberta
” I used VW Manufacturing’s VW10FC point with carbide along top of wing and believe we could get 20,000 acres plus from these points. We planted 5,500 acres with this drill with little or no wear. The VW10FC points used for 7,500 acres on our farm in 2007, with excellent results, and we estimate that we can complete another season with these tips. We are very satisfied with the performance of these points and with the service of VW Manufacturing Ltd. “


I Truly Recommend These Openers To All Farmers. It Is Money Well Spent! ~ Dennis Ericson, Vida, Montana
” I started using VW Manufacturing Ltd. openers in the spring of 2001. These openers had carbide only on the nose for consistent penetration, which they definitely achieved. They worked quite well in comparison to the openers I had previously been using. In 2004 I upgraded to Vic’s VW8C openers with carbide on the nose and wings. The openers I mounted to the drill in the tractor tracks area are still on the drill to date (2007). They have seeded approximately 21,000 acres. We now use VW Manufacturing’s VW10FC openers with carbide on the sides of the wings, instead of the bottom. I expect these openers will last even longer than Vic’s previous openers. It has been a pleasure to get to know and work with Vic. I truly recommend these openers to all farmers. It is money well spent. “


We Have Found That Germination And Emergence Is Excellent, Likely Due To The Precise Placement Of Seed ~ Joe Wipf, Magrath, Alberta
” Our farm is south of Lethbridge. We farm 7,000 acres of rocky land and this year we have seeded 5,000 acres. We have used VW10FC points in the spring of 2007 and have found that germination and emergence is excellent, likely due to the precise placement of the seed. We have tried other points and have found the VW10FC point made by VW Manufacturing Ltd., to be the most durable and the longest lasting due to the full carbide. What is unique to these points is that they have carbide at the front as well as the sides. The carbide shoes do the work, all the time, with the soil flowing over the carbide and the wing. The wings do not work all the time with the soil flowing over the carbide and the wing. The wings do not wear off and the points remain the same size. These points shine up with usage and stay sharp, wearing from sides and bottom. They penetrate our hard ground and stay in well. They maintain their width the entire life of the point. While I have not worn out any yet, it looks to me like the life these points will be at least 50,000 acres. “


Dealing With Vw Manufacturing Ltd. Has Been A Good Experience And Have Had Prompt Service. It Is Reassuring To Know Any Concerns I May Have Will Be Dealt With I ~ Dean Loran , Acadia Valley, Alberta
” I farm approximately 6,000 acres of brown soil with 3,000 acres being seeded this year using the VW10FC drill points and 3 inch packers. I have used carbide tips in the past with excellent results as to wear and expect this to continue. The air drill pulled easily and the germination was good even though I used packers 1 inch smaller than the openers. I am quite satisfied with the yield especially considering the dry conditions we experienced this crop year. Dealing with VW Manufacturing Ltd. has been a good experience and have had prompt service. It is reassuring to know any concerns I may have will be dealt with in an efficient and courteous way. “


This Season I Used One Of Vw Manufacturing’s Full Carbide Tips And With The Accent Improvements To The Strength And Wings, I Feel This Will Make Them An Excelle ~ David Lemare, Acadia Valley, Alberta
” This season I used one of VW Manufacturing’s full carbide tips and with the accent improvements to the strength and wings, I feel this will make them an excellent wearing tip. Possibly 20,000 – 25,000 acres depending on soil conditions. Looking forward to trying a full set. “


We Have Used Vw Manufacturing Carbide Points For A Number Of Years ~ Eli Wipf, Ponderosa Colony, Grassy Lake, Alberta
” We have used VW Manufacturing carbide points for a number of years. We tried the new VW10FC with full carbide in 2006. This season I used one of VW Manufacturing’s full carbide tips and with the accent improvements to the strength and wings, I feel this will make them an excellent wearing tip. “


Overall We Are Very Impressed With The Design And Results Of These Openers As They Allow Us To Increase Seeding Rates In Cereals And Not Congest The Seed Row ~ Dwayne and Keith Nachtegaele, Nachtegaele Farms, North Battleford, Saskatchewan
” When looking for a new seeding system, we wanted to try and maximize the row spacing but still maintain balanced seed bed utilization. Narrow knives have worked for us very well but the wider the row spacing the more concentrated the seed and fertilizer rows become. Like most producers pushing higher cereal yields means increasing seeding rates thus concentrating more seeds per row. After looking at many options we found the paired row VW manufacturing openers a good fit for what we were looking for.The low profile 3 1/4 in paired row opener and the very well designed seed boot allowed us to actually build the seeding system we wanted. This combination allowed us to utilize our liquid phos into each seed row very effectively. Also the back of the seed boot allowed us to inject a very narrow band of N and S directly in the center of that seed row by having a secured stainless tube in the fert boot. This gives it excellent protection and gives consistent flow directly where it is needed. The alpine tubes installed were also stainless and fitted with orifices that are very well protected. No other paired row opener could do that. The openers are very low draft and throw very little dirt allowing us to maintain an easy 5 mph or better without soil throw out. This allowed us to mount spring pressured packers directly on the shank to virtually giving us on row packing that is very effective. We seeded into both very wet (mud) and dry soil with no plugging issues at all, even in heavy trash. Also the design and angel of the carbides on the opener penetrated very well into dryer canola stubble at the end of seeding. Overall we are very impressed with the design and results of these openers as they allow us to increase seeding rates in cereals and not congest the seed row. In canola the paired row gives the canola plants a little more room to grow and have a higher SBU to maximize higher seed placed fertilizer without hindering seed safety. “


Canola, Which Is Planted Fairly Shallow, Is Very Important To Have At A Uniform Depth, And These Points Do An Outstanding Job! ~ Larry Monson, Monson Family Farms, Wolf Point, Montana
” I installed 60 of the VW32PR shank openers on my New Holland P2060 air drill in 2013. What caught my attention about this product was the fact the point that went in the ground was flared to put the seed in 2 rows, 3½ ins. apart. Some manufacturers had wider points, but the seed was scattered. The seed comes out evenly on these at a uniform depth, so the seedlings emerge uniformly. For the past 10 years I had used a paired seed boot that placed the seed behind the shank. It had a separate opener in front called the ‘stealth’. This system required more maintenance as parts wore out faster. Another unique feature I like on the VW opener is the square tube on the back that has 2 pieces of ¼ in. tubing inside. They end up just above where the paired seed comes out. I use these tubes to inject liquid phosphorus. It goes on real close to the seed, but not on it. With the other boot I had injected liquid right on the seed, and it made a mess. I was also limited on how much I could apply because it was going right on the seed. I use the main fertilizer tube on the VW boot to apply liquid nitrogen about ½ in. deeper than seed placement. Previously I’d used a Flexi-Coil opener with paired row seed boots farther back. This new one is a smaller, more efficient operation without as much drag. It has carbide surfaces on the point, the underside and back edges, so it shows a lot less wear. I really like the way this point pulls in the ground and the fact it puts on 2 different types of liquid fertilizer at once. Canola, which is planted fairly shallow, is very important to have at a uniform depth, and these points do an outstanding job. I also used the points in the fall of 2013 to plant winter wheat on CRP ground that had been worked with a Summers vertical tillage tool. The seed was well distributed and the young plants came up very uniformly. I spent about $17,500 on these openers for my 60 ft. drill, and this included 5 extra points and 2 additional seed bodies, and I hope to plant about 10,000 acres with them. On the other seed bodies that I fastened with a roll pin I’d lose 10-12 a year. With these seed bodies I haven’t lost any. I used the points on wheat and canola in 2013 and they worked well and in 2014 I will also use them on chick peas. “


We Have Used Vw Manufacturing Products For More Than 25 Years ~ Richard Tomacek – Glenside, SK
” We have used VW Manufacturing products for more than 25 years – going back to our hoe drill days. Today we use the VW7CC and the VW10FC and have recently purchased the Super Slim VW13FC – 1-1/2″ spread full carbide drill point. Thank you VW Manufacturing for all the great products over the years. “


We Double Shoot With Our Vw7cc On The Vw14fbopener With The Vw21dsf – 4″ Paired Row On Back Of Vw14fb. Very Durable – Awesome Job! ~ Lyndon Johnston, Shaunavon, SK
” We double shoot with our VW7CC on the VW14FB opener with the VW21DSF – 4″ paired row on back of VW14FB. We like the 3/4″ wide opening where the fertilizer comes out – and the four carbides on either side of the VW21DSF. Very durable – awesome job. “


Highly Recommended! Very Little Wear In Three Years Use ~ Boyd Dunham, Admiral, SK

” Very happy to receive my VWHC1 Harmon drill points from VW Manufacturing. They are extremely durable and work very well in our rocky abrasive soil. Looks like will last many years. Thank you mate. “


Drill Points Stand Up Well In Our Rocky Conditions ~ Ross and Stan Fitzpatrick, Eatonia, SK.
” Have used VW10FC drill points on our VW14FB openers for 10 years. Drill points stand up well in our rocky conditions. We had a couple of chipped carbides – VW replaced those chipped carbides at no charge. Very happy with VW products – high recommended. “


Vw Carbide Points Far Surpass Any Competitors Product We Have Tried ~ Roger Bendickson, Bendickson Farms, Garrison, ND
” We have been using VW products for several years now. Wear life of VW Carbide points far surpass any competitors product we have tried. We are using points to apply fertilizer as well as seeding operations. Extremely impressed with virtually non existent breakage or loss of carbide over the years. I would and I do recommend VW products to all producers. “


The Emergence Of The Crop Seeded With The Vw Product, In A Field Next To A Competitors Product, Was Unbelievable! ~ Colony from Glacier County, MT
” We purchased a set of the VW11FCC Full Carbide drill points and put on our drill this last year, and were amazed at what we found after seeding our first spring crop with them. The emergence of the crop seeded with the VW product, in a field next to a competitors product, was unbelievable. The competitors seeding was later emerging and uneven. There was no comparison in the stand and healthiness of the plant. There is no doubt we will be using more VW products in the future. I would recommend to anyone. “


Our Canola Yields Doubled With These Openers! 3000 Acres On These Openers And The Wear Is Hardly Noticeable! ~ Tony Dechaine, Linalta Stock Farms
” We started using VW Manufacturing carbide drill points – (VWHC2 openers) on our our Harmon 3280 seeder three years ago and I’m very impressed with them. We seed between 1000-1200 acres every spring. Before we got them we were just using Harmon B type openers and we could only do about 1800-200 acres with them However the legs we put them on would wear and there was considerable breakage. Another thing was that you had to put them too deep or they would come out of the ground, even when set under an inch of depth. Our canola yields doubled with these openers and we’ve got over 3000 acres on these openers and the wear is hardly noticeable with very little breakage (2 or 3 out of 40 openers). “


Vw Drill Points Stand Up Well In Our Abrasive Soil And Wear Far Longer Than Others ~ Daryl & Greg Lausen, Carhill Land & Cattle Corp., Carseland, Alberta.
” We have used VW Manufacturing full carbide drill points on our Flexi Coil drill for twelve years and recently purchased another set. VW drill points stand up well in our abrasive soil and wear far longer than others. VW drill points maintain their width of cut throughout the entire life of the drill points. “


We Recommend The Vw Product To Anyone Looking For Great Wear And Value In Their Drill Points ~ Leonard Schock—Vida, MT
” I am very impressed with the wear on our VW12FCC drill points from VW Manufacturing. We put nearly 40,000 acres on this set of points, and could have gotten another season, but decided to switch them out for another new set. We recommend the VW product to anyone looking for great wear and value in their drill points. “


We Would Recommend These Drill Points To Anyone. An Excellent Product! ~ Merlin & Clare Peterson, Mid Prairie Crop Production LTD, Oyen Alberta
” We used VWs 3 inch carbide point for the first time in the spring of 2015. We were very impressed with the durability and seed placement under less than ideal conditions that spring. We have equipped our new John Deere 1835 drill with VW openers – VW14FB and VW11FC. We would recommend these drill points to anyone. An excellent product. “


Very Long Wearing – Durable – Best Price With Great Customer Service ~ Kevin Schalin, East Arrow Farms, Gleichen, AB.
” We have used VW Manufacturing products on our Morris Double Shoot Drill for many years. The main front point – the VWM1C – with two carbides and the full carbide deflector and the carbide side plates. Very long wearing – durable – best price with great customer service. “


We Have Used Vw Manufacturing Products For More Than 25 Years ~ Richard Tomacek, Glenside, SK
” We have used VW Manufacturing products for more than 25 years – going back to our hoe drill days. Today we use the VW7CC and the VW10FC and have recently purchased the Super Slim VW13FC – 1-1/2″ spread full carbide drill point. Thank you VW Manufacturing for all the great products over the years. “

 


Great drill points – 4000 acres – basically no wear ~ Jesse St John, KB2J Acres, Brock, SK.
“We use VW MFG carbide scrapers on our mid row banders on our air drill. Looks like the carbide scrapers last at least three times longer than regular scrapers. We also use the VW12FC – full carbide drill points. Great drill points – 4000 acres – basically no wear. “


We expect these products to work very well for us and to last for many acres ~ Doug Zahariuk, RKM FARMS LTD., Flintoft, SK.
” Our first product we bought were carbide scrapers for our 57ft Flexicoil drill packer wheels. There was no noticeable wear after one season of use. This year we purchased VW7CC 3/4 inch wide carbide tips, VW21DSF – 4 inch paired row openers and some VW14FB bodies. We expect these products to work very well for us and to last for many acres. Service at VW MANUFACTURING has been excellent “

 


The wear of full carbide VW5FC is unreal – at least fifteen times the wear of non-carbide ~ Don Reichen, Davidson, SK
” We have used the VW5FC knock on spoons for eight years. The wear of full carbide VW5FC is unreal – at least fifteen times the wear of non carbide. Very durable – super products from VW MFG “
