Default 2008 Caseih air drill

FINALLY!!!! GOT rid of the 30 ft great pains for a 40 ft air drill. cart is on behind... were 100 percent no till and mostly clay soil...usually plant when conditions are right... who has experience with this setup or just the drill...what do we look for.

if it rains do u have to shut a slide and clean the manifold out? or what tips....

thanks

also were pulling it with a 375 and it doesn't have a large plugin for the hydralic return line like our mx 200 has.. anyone ever ran into that problem

the monitors a flexcoil something....are those good monitors..or can I make a pro 600 run this setup?

What drill do you have? disc or shank. I assume its an SDX40, but we need some more info.

No problem. Down there I am sure that most all airdrills are either SDXs or 1890s or maybe a great plains every so often. Just wanted to make sure.

Flexicoil carts are not my specialty (its probably a 2320 cart). I have only ever had the pleasure of using one for about 1000 acres and I was not impressed coming from our Morris. But thousands of people get along with them just fine so I'm sure you're set.

SDXs have a 22 inch disc while the deeres have an 18 incher. The SDXs will hairpin more at shallow depths, but because they have less of an angle on the disc, they pull easier I think. They have a way cheaper scraper to replace when needed.

The frames are heavy and don't require anymore weight like the deeres do.

Rain has never been an issue with our drills. Everything is pretty watertight (thats how the cart works, its pressurized so it both seals the air and and keeps the water out. Shouldn't be an issue.

Do you have seed firming wheels (the small rubber wheel that runs right behind the scraper in the furrow?) If so you probably want to consider spike closing wheels to close your seed trench in heavy clays. The cast closer won't work well in your no till situation.

It does a nice job of planting, we have a SDX 40 , cart behind. All we use it for is wheat, all no-till also. Never have had a problem with rain but we only average 15 inches a year. Put a monitor on your seed tubes, will save you some headaches. Plugs clear back to the manifold under cart and it is a pain to unplug. Is your cart a red one or the flexi 2320? We pull it with mx305 so we have all the plug in's. I think you can plug the return in one of the remotes if you have to. Has 3 different pressure settings on disc, will plant anywhere. Will look to see what monitor we have for drill, can't remember. Good luck with it, you will like the way it plants.

Your dealer should have a kit for a low pressure return line. Don't risk seal failure by plugging the return line into a remote. It will work but you always have to remember to put the remote into float posistion and I know from exp. that you will forget to do it and the motor seals will fail and you will be buying a whole lot of hydraulic fluid after you notice the hyd. idiot light coming on.

okay...then can u cheat on the depth by adjusting the downpressure.. also u adjust downpressure from the cab? ill be glad when we get the book... also those handles while simple it looks like make it hard to adjust by a notch or two... but maybe that's something we won't mess with

i've heard people say the red drills pull harder than the green ones. Some guys that farm beside us traded they're 1850 in for a SDX 40 last winter and are pulling it with a 9370 and say they'd like to have more power with the red drill.
