Stanhay Repair Shop

For decades, Sutton Ag has specialized in Stanhay planter sales and service. Beginning with the humble and enduring belt planter, and continuing with the modern and innovative vacuum planter, our Stanhay repair shop provides thorough and accurate service, from a quick metering unit tune-up to get your units back in to the field ASAP, to a complete rebuild to get your units looking and operating like new again. We pride ourselves in knowing we’re the preeminent source for Stanhay service.

In more recent years, we’ve expanded beyond just servicing Stanhay units to complete equipment fabrication and repair. From planter shoes, sleds and stacker bars, to small harvesters and accessories, we work directly with growers to build customized equipment. Our in-house planter design and fabrication shop specializes in building your unique equipment to your unique specifications.

Seed Planter Shoe Repair
Stanhay Planter Shoes

Planter shoes are one of the most important components of precision planting.

We repair shoes for Stanhay planters and fabricate them for a variety of others.

When worn out, single-line shoes can be repaired with durable chromium inserts. In this process, the worn out metal is cut off and the insert is welded in place.

Multi-line shoes can be repaired with UHMW plastic, or long-lasting chromium runners.
