  1. Thanks for everyone's opinion. Cool pics Nate. On my way to Wisconsin to get the planter.
  2. Wheat plates are still available and beet plates too. Checked with the local dealer. Amazing all the different plates that are in the parts book for this planter.
  3. Thanks guys. Main concern was how close the two row units are together on the rear splitter, #2 and #3 units are right tight together. And if 8"rows,4 rows wide, with the 18"space in the wheel tracks will work well? See some wheat in Ohio that's planted with the blocks then the tire spaces. Less bean acres done this way. Be nice in my opinion to have the tram lines set when spraying and not driving on the rows. One guy said why would you want 18"blank strips in your fields, my thinking is 18" is not much different than 15" soybeans. A little nervous switching from the green planter that I know so well..
  4. Going to buy new to me and wanting some opinions.. 6100 main and 6103 splitter. Has for units on the splitter and think it originally was three. The extra unit makes it plant blocks to of 4 rows with tram skips where the tractor and planter tires run. 30"corn 8"beans 8"wheat and cover crops. No experience with the white planters and this is the only one I've seen set with the narrow rows.
  5. Where's the chicken fried steak? None to be found in Michigan!
  6. Seems that there was a topic in the archives and 5 to 7 Grand was mentioned. I would never sell it if it was on my 7!
  7. Everyone's ground and situations are different, but why chisel that is some nice winter cover! Plant right into it this spring and save the fuel. Nice to see guys doing covers and feeding cattle, do you allow any winter grazing? The radishes are awesome compaction tools, but 🦨 pretty bad when warms up. Do you have any issues in the spring with the oats roots and getting a smooth seed bed?
  8. I would not do any acid or chemicals! Pressure wash with some Dawn and call it good. No heavy brushing don't want to scratch that baby!
  9. Jeez someone jump in here and help the man out!
  10. Ace laughing my arse off over your Mad Max video!
  11. Like the Red, but the Ferd is sweet too. Is that a 1086? Can't read the# Never seen a 86 with a after market cab
  12. Not at all related to the subject, but guess rows on thirties with a four row planter.. Then split them into fifteens in soybeans, I get this all the time, how do you do it? Look straight ahead and stay on the mark that's very hard in a no till field at times. I'm sure planting perfect in narrow or wide rows, should not be a issue which ever row head and planter combo that's used? Look forward, nothing behind you're looking at will straighten the guess row! I have no GPS, a good eye ball and don't get distracted.
  13. Would not worry to much about that rubber. Thresh your beaners out of the pods the first time through the machine. You're gaining nothing by sending threshed grain back through to the rear separator on the return..
  14. Up to a certain point of moisture above 13, some elevators only charge you with the shrink, no drying discount, think that's like 15.5% Much better to cut above than below those dry beaners are a lose at the cutter bar and real!
