I didnt realise that Great Plains made planters like this Michael, I thought they only made box drills & airseeders.

Nice photos too ;-)

Re: No-Tilling Beans with the Deere's
They quit making planters like mine 8 years ago. It's too bad, it's an ideal no-till planter, it's is a little heavier than the deere's, very tough row units.

Horses for courses Bobman. In light soils or soils at risk to erosion, ploughing is a no no IMO (Min till or direct seeding is the way to go).

Re: No-Tilling Beans with the Deere's
Each to their own. I like to see a plough in heavier soils but tynes in lighter ground can give you a satisfactory seedbed too.

Just depends on your soil types, what you use & whether or not you can get away with less passes over the ground.

Our Farm is 100% Min Till/No Till. All soybeans are no-tilled, and on average the crop is just as good as a tilled field,

Re: No-Tilling Beans with the Deere's
It's in beautiful shape, just rolled over 6000hrs, we baby it... I updated the steps on it to the same as the 7000 series, dreses it up a bit, and makes it much nicer to get in and out. We imported it from Holland 4 years ago. We had been looking over there for quite a while, before coming across it. So far so good

I always enjoy seeing Great Plains equipment at work. Thanks for the pics. My dad is a truck driver for GP so I am partial to their products because he delivers their stuff all over the country.

check out www.greatplainsmfg.com for the full line-up of GP products.
