I have always felt like I took a little step backwards in the row unit when I went to the Deere from the early riser. That being said I have no complaints about the green planter I drug it over a bunch of acres for 15 years. Obviously going from a JD 1760 to this is a MAJOR upgrade. I really like this planter. It is amazing in some ways. Intimidating in others. Lots of technology!
I suppose a new Deere is very similar but I am happy to have the early riser units again. They seem to “just work” in a myriad of conditions. So, no regrets on buying the Red planter. Would make the same
