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

3688 

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.

Someday I hope to own a STX Steiger for a blade tractor. Seems like a huge step up from the 9170 we have

Stay away from the first 2 generations of STX for packing tractors, no one here could keep a transmission in one on the bunk.

What size were they? Are they the two STX 325s that are/were at landpro?

There were several different sizes, 325's, 375's mostly. Neighbor had a 325 they bought with the 10 year warranty, 6 transmissions in 10 years. as soon as warranty expired it was traded on a green one.

No idea on the ones at Landpro, most all the early STX's are long gone now. the new Steiger series seems to be holding up a lot better and red is starting to make a comeback in this area, The STX and MX series were the best thing to happen to the Deere dealers in this area.

It's a replaceable bearing. We are stony and rocky enough that the disks wear out before bearing failure

I just wish the farm was not rented out and we still had equipment to plant it with. 

What we had at the end was a 2007 Kinze 3000 4 row with inter plant for7 row 15 inch beans that we pulled with the 7120.

Hard for me to believe it's been 6 years already that we have rented the farm out. At least the people who rent it use red equipment.

I have never seen a 4 row with interplants. Pretty cool little setup

My 70 year old neighbor still plants between 150 and 200 acres of corn with a JD 494a 4 row wide planter.  Has enough cash to buy a brand new 12 row and tractor to pull it but that's not how his dad did it so he can't either.

We only farmed 150 acres total of corn and beans.  Had the magnum before the planter when we still did tillage.

Binkley & Hurst built us the planter to our specs. Look at it close you see the tongue is a lighter blue color than the planter is. Cannot remember exactly anymore but I believe it was because the tongue was from something Kinze made for Monosem? Or maybe the frame was? I do not remember exactly anymore but that is how it was delivered brand new to us though.
