What are you planting with in 2020?


Recommended Posts

  After 15 years of using my 8920 and JD 1760 I made a upgrade to this new rig but I will plant a few acres with the 800 8 row.  Hired man will get a lot of seat time in the planter.  I usually run the sprayer in the day and then take over for him and plant into the night.  He may not want to quit this year!  Going to be a learning curve for both of us.

What the heck, I might as well add some more.  Need to get the 5488 we still plant a lot of beans with in there, too.    more.

What kind of hitch is on 800, I have the same setup but have to unhook from the front and rehook on the end, yours looks like just one hitch. Maybe my eyes are playing tricks on me. Both look like nice taken care of machines

We plan to have the MX 270 on the 1200  12 row pivot planter  and hopefully pull a pair of 955 cyclo air 6 rows behind the 8950 and MX 230 . We bought the one 955 new in '97 and we just got the second one for reasonable. The MX Magnums are awesome for visibility and comfort

I can’t imagine those big horses will turn to short on only 6 rows.

Everything is strips here for erosion control. It's not that bad. We have used the 89 for two years. Liquid fertilizer adds a lot of weight on the hills. We had been using a McCormick MTX 140 but it was traded for the MX 230 last year. The McCormick had no power at all. Don't quite need the 89 but it has done fine

What number planter did you get then? I had a 1760 12 row from 2000-2009. Good enough planter, haven't missed it though

Its a 1255 thats a couple years old.  1760 had been a good planter.  Trouble free for sure.  Just need to get over more acres in a day.  Going to a 16row bulk fill out to do the trick.

2013 Case IH 105U and a 6 row Kinze 3000 planter. Pulled the planter with my 7120 for years until last year. Bought a 1000 gallon sprayer and thought the 2wd 7120 would work better on the sprayer on our hills than the 105U. Works until we eventually upsize planters. Then we may have to put one on the Magnums on it. I have thought about buying a cheap 4wd tractor to pull the disc and giving the FWA 7120 to pull the planter but that's just a thought

Not sure how many 4wd Versatiles are in your part of the world, but there's lots of them up here, cheap and make great tillage tractors.

It's part of an old elevator sideways, my dad can stack it with seed bags when he is by himself amd reload out in the field by himself if he needs to and yes 12 row, before this he had the 886 on the same planter, always worked good

Holy crap that seems like it would be heavy!  I'd be afraid it would stand the tractor on end!

Got the assist wheels in back and my dad is a ninja so it works out. My 1456 had a large drill every spring and it was way to big and my uncle turned with the brakes every round, made sence when I got the tractor the brakes needed to be completely redone and the crank arms on the 3 point are as floppy as a wet rag

The 686 and 2 row JD. I don’t even know the planter number. It isn’t on there anywhere. This was a plot planter starting in the late 60’s where I used to work. Small boxes with plates on top and 7000 style row units on bottom. They decided to sell it a year or so after I left and I knew it was in perfect shape so I bought it. I don’t cover a lot of ground and mostly am playing so it works well for me.
