Re: S.I. Belt Meters
I run belts on a 750 deere, they help get u a more consistant pop, but as planterman says seed size and seed treatment play a big roll in it. It still is'nt like a planter, set you'r pop and go, if u have 3 different #'s of beans and 3 different seed sizes you'll need to correct your pop 3 different times. It was alot of trial and air, but i have wrote down what pop i get at each sproket for that seed size so now i can set it accordingly and go,and always be real close.This drill had the belts on it when we bought it on action, thought they were gonna be the answer, I was expecting a little better results I guess but they do make it alot easyer to run. I can't remember the price per row on them now, was thinking they were pricey? I still prefere the drill over twin row planter for beans. Not may people in our are run them any more though because they could'nt control there pop, from day 1 we spent the money and put a monitor on ours with just 4 sensers out the 24 (15' 7.5"space) and got along great. And now with the belts and the monitor on the new drill (20' 10"space) its easier yet. If you'r going to keep the drill I would buy em, if your thinkin about interplant, I would'nt spend the money just to say u tried them.
