Re: John Deere 1590 Disc Drill
Yes Sarge it is.

99.99% of drills here in Tasmania are combi drills;

Here is a link for more info about the drills, for you;

Re: John Deere 1590 Disc Drill
Thats for sure. No paddocks here that big Andy, 30 - 40 acres is an average size in my area.

There are a few on these 10ft JD drills getting around here, easy to move between paddocks or on the road. There are also a couple of 15ft models that I know of, but they stay on farm & are a bit more difficult to shift.

Re: John Deere 1590 Disc Drill
thanks tas. Scince viewing this site over the past couple of years i have learnt heaps about farming in other countries and even in our own country. I never realised that farmers could exist in such a small holding. I guess i was always exposed to very large farms with 1500 acres thought of as a "hobby farm" usually with the farmer having another 'off farm' income either through himself or his wife.Also only seeing the large machinery with a 28 row drill seen as a 'toy'
like i said a real eye opener!;-)

PS 20 mm of rain average across the farm this week......things are looking good with the promise of more this week!

Re: John Deere 1590 Disc Drill
No probems Andy :-)

Yes, it certainly is something that makes this site so good; from the poppy fields of Tasmania or the wheat crops in South Aus, to the maize silage crops in Holland, from the praries of Canada to the smaller holdings in Turkey & all places in between, plenty for all to see & definitely plenty to learn about.

BTW, we ended up with 153mm for May, 45 mm of that in the last week ;-) too late for an autumn break for the graziers but good for the winter crops & hopefully it will start to set things up for a good spring (however plenty more rain needed to fill the irrigation dams & waterholes)

Re: John Deere 1590 Disc Drill
Yes i see that thank's for information., In Finland our common drill is Combi Boxdrill. Like Tume , VM , Simulta Juko and so on. I have seen here couple of Lemnken Solitair's and Horsch no combi drill's but they are minority.

Re: John Deere 1590 Disc Drill
No problems Sarge, any time ;-)

I guess it is a country by country think. It is like tramlines; here in Tassie, I know of only one guy who uses tramlines, while over in the UK & parts of Europe it seems to be common practice.

As the saying goes here "horses for courses", what ever works in your situation, go for it :-)

Re: John Deere 1590 Disc Drill
Yes , that's true! Do you have any experience for SEMEATO TD TRONIC 300 NO TILL DRILL'S?. They are now selling those drill's here in Finland and i know three farmer's how use those drill's and I'm little bit interesting Semeatos drill's butt i like to have more information of those drill's. Those farmer's how use Semeato drill's are saying that those drill's are best drill's ever made but they are selling those drill's here in Finland too! Semeatos drill's are cheaper then Tume's or Väderstadt drill's so that is the reason why i'm interested .

Re: John Deere 1590 Disc Drill
I havent had any direct experience with them Sarge. I believe that they are manufactured in Brazil, so thats why they are probably cheaper than a Tume or Vaderstad.

They have a website but it is in Spanish;

http://www.semeato.com.br/br/index.php

There is meant to be an Engish link there but it doesnt seem to work,

Regards,

TC ;-)
