Case IH and Kinze ready for the field
We got 900 acres of corn in before the rain set in for a
couple of weeks in Ohio. Still a couple hundred more of
corn and then the bean boxes to help out the JD 8630 and
airseeder.
It is a 9270 on a Kinze 2700 60' on 20" spacing. Plenty of
power! ;-)

Ready for transport
It folds down to just about the same width as the tractor,
could be a little narrower.

Ready and waiting
Hopefully the weather breaks soon and I can post picts of
all this hp in the field rather than the barnyard!

Re: Case IH and Kinze ready for the field
That is an 850 Versatile. We have two of them on the farm.
Old faithfuls. Had them both since the 70s. It has the 855
cummins turned to about 330 hp. Usually just pull a notill
drill or a 30' disc and packer.

Re: Case IH and Kinze ready for the field
Ya where I work we have a Versatile 1150, duals all around
all 30 inch wheels, rated at about 475hp. Its pretty much
retired since the John Deere 9520 took over last spring.
Great tractors.

Re: Case IH and Kinze ready for the field
Hey Brock,

I like the look of that 9270!! I'd take that over the MX
285 you had last season anyday!!

Good luck, and grab some pics of that awesome combo when you
can!

Take care,

Will

True confessions
yeah, we have a little variety on our lot (as far as
4-wheelers, 2 MF, 2 Versatile, 1 JD, 1 Case IH, and 1
White). As far as tractors go, by far the fav is the 9270
Steiger. However, when we find a good deal, it is hard to
pass it up for brand loyalty, you know? Most of our HP is
older and been rebuilt. I will have to say that my baby is
an 8630 (see pict) on our JD airseeder. Though it is 26
years old and has over 8,000 hours, it is amazing how well
it rides and handles (though I am not a fan of earlier Deere
tractor engineering or engines). So as far as that goes,
Nothing runs like a Deere.

That MF is a 4900. It is the cummins V8 (903?) and we pull
our 36" landsman and packer with it when we work corn
ground.

Re: Case IH and Kinze ready for the field
Great pics.
I was wondering how long have you had your Kinze and how
well do like it? They seem to be a rugged planter.

Thanks,

Old MF 1805 and New Kinze
Aside from the MF 4900 we have an ancient MF 1805. It is on
it's second CAT 3208. Mostly we use it to move equipment
around when we are working on it or taking it to park it in
the lot. But this spring, actually, it was on a 20' Tye
no-till drill planting soybeans because of problems with a
set of 15' JD double no-drills and the tractor. But it can
only drag the Tye about 6 MPH and we like to run 8.5 mhp so
a Versatile is now on the Tye drill.

Our Kinze 2700 is a year 2000 model and this is our second
year using it. Before we got this wonderful planter, we had
a kinze rear fold 40' on 20" rows. I am not sure of the
number. That planter had issues. However, we love the new
one! It is well built, easy to fold, narrow to transport,
and plants extremely evenly. The only problem is that with
36 row units, folded empty it has 10,000+ lbs of down
pressure on the drawbar. Think if you have any seed in the
boxes! We took the old faithful MF 1805 to pick it up at
the dealer and as soon as the took the jack out it bent the
drawbar on the little MF 4-wheeler straight to the ground!!!
We had to put some beef on it, hence the big steiger!!!

Re: Case IH and Kinze ready for the field
Thanks for the feed back. A good friend of mine had the same
issue when hooking up his new 24 row Kinze to his front
wheel assit NH. It bent the tongue to the ground. It took a
NH (Versatile)4-wheel drive articulated to handle it. They
are really heavy built. Do you have any trouble with the
down force springs on the planting units?
