hi guys wondering if anyone had personal experience on either of these drills they can share. My tractor cannot handle a land pride.
With your tractor the ideal drill would be the Lands Pride or Great Plains 606NT with end wheels. Same drill, different paint. They recommend 40HP minimum. They aren't cheap but are nice drills and would be the drill I would own with your tractor if I had the money. I have no personal experience with the two you mention. I have heard the Woods is overpriced and basically just a seeder. That came from some online reviews from other people I read. If the Lands Pride or Great Plains is too pricey, the Kasco drills are less money and guys seem to be happy with them. They aren't top line drills but get the job done.
Are u happy with it?I have a kasco versa drill that I bought used from Kasco as they take tradin's
I bought the Woods drill last fall and used it to plant sugar beets and it did a great job. This summer I tried planting soybeans it did not workout, to be fair though we had a wicked drought that started mid-May and lasted to the end of August. So I am going to try again next year. Last week of August I planted rape, alfalfa and red clover and that is growing great. The first week of Sept I planted oats winter peas and that is doing well but we could use some rain hopefully we will get it Monday.
To sum things up the drill works but in my opinion it is not a true no till drill it leaves a lot of seeds on the surface and you don’t get prefect rows. I have the 3 box model so it is a little heavy. Next year I am going try and use it as a no till drill on a ¼ ac plot to see if it works but I have a funny feeling if you want a no till drill you are going to have to go with Great Plains, Land Pride or Haybuster which is going to cost twice the price of the Woods.
Will do. I got it with the following additional options:Nice. Very interested to hear how it works for you. Keep us updated.
