Elliott began production of Agricultural Seeders for John Deere
Production of Agricultural Seeders for CNH and AGCO began
Launch of RowControl and SurfaceDrive products for the Agricultural Aftermarket
Elliott’s flexible shafts are asked to perform in a variety of applications. Whether it’s precision performance, demanding conditions or high-operational reliability, Agriculture requires it all.
Flexible planting products extend mechanical advantages without the need for additional power sources. If your planter has a toolbar, you already have all the power you need to drive any one of our precision planting products.
For more information on our innovative flexible shaft drive systems for planters, check out our catalog. Since 2003, we have produced more than 2 million flexible drive assemblies to fit most planters on the market today, including John Deere, AGCO, Kinze and Case IH.
If you have a John Deere planter with Pro-Shaft drives and want to add an inline clutch, it’s time you knew about RowControl, Elliott’s easy to install solution for individual on/off row control.
If you’re using Precision Planting’s vSet seed meter, you should see SurfaceDrive, Elliott’s mechanical drive that uses the power from your own toolbar to drive the meter.
Just because John Deere no longer offers spare parts for its RowCommand™ product doesn’t mean you can’t continue to benefit from your investment. Elliott’s GroundControl system is a better, fully compatible row control replacement for Pro-Shaft drive planters.
Our new GroundControl II system is a better, fully compatible, row control replacement for all Pro-Shaft driven row units, including the Pro-Series™ XP and MaxEmerge™ XP planters. Plus, Elliott’s innovative design locates the clutch inside the seed meter gearbox, so you can use your existing flexible shafts for fast, easy installation.
If your planter is running with chains and sprockets, it’s time for you to learn about FlexSeeder, Elliott’s modular offering for a wide range of planter models.
Elliott Manufacturing designed and built the first prototype system in 1998. John Deere began testing and evaluation in early 1999. Elliott then began work with CNH and AGCO OEM drive systems in 2011 and production began in 2013. Since 2013 we have outfitted approximately 1.2 million row units worldwide.

The ROI is real, and generally recognized in the first year.
It is a complete mechanism capable of transmitting rotary power or motion between two points that need not be co-linear. They are available in a wide range of configurations and materials to meet your needs. Flex Shafts are very durable and can operate in demanding environments, some requiring continuous operation at very high speed. There are two primary types of Flex Shafts:
Power Drive: Designed for continuous operation at speeds exceeding 100 RPM where torque is carries in one direction of rotation. It may also be used where intermittent operation is an application requirement.
Remote Control: Designed for intermittent operation at speeds of 100 RPM or less. Remote Control Flex Shafts generally carry handle higher torque than Power Drive Flex Shafts and can rotate either clockwise or counterclockwise without adverse effects.
Contact one of our application engineers to determine if the torque, speed, and environment of your application are appropriate for Flexible Shafting. Over the past 140 years, Elliott has designed Flex Shafts for literally THOUSANDS of applications ranging from military to commercial to power plants and beyond.
