JD also made a 7000 plate planter.

Does anyone know how many were made looking for one but can not find a nice one. Did they make a #900 4 row wide plate planter?
I use a 800 plate planter and it uses the same plates as the 295 planters did. Ive got a friend that Im pretty sure has a 4 row 900 plate planter also,not for sale tho. I usually find a set on the sales down here every once in a while and pick them up for parts pretty cheap. The 7000 series jd were a lot more popular around here at the time. Never heard of anybody useing any cyclos around here.

This is a picture of one a friend of mine built using a great plains 30 ft drill caddy and 2 ih tool bars. These are the central drive type units and there is a transmission on each bar. They've only planted beans with it the last 2 years but are probably going to plant corn this years also with this planters instead of their 10 row 7100.

My dad has a 4r-30" #56 planter and yes they do use the same plates.
above is a link to one that is for sale in MI
edit: I did some quick checking and there are two different types of #56 plate units. the later ones use the same plate system as the 800s but the earlier ones are different. don't know the #break.
