Default kinze vs. white

I'm looking looking to upgrade planters and want a 6/11 row with dry fertilizer to plant both corn and beans. I wanted a kinze as I've been using a jd 7000 and have been very happy with the finger pick up for what I do. It's hard to find one set up the way I want it, most with splitter units don't have fertilizer on them let alone dry boxes. I see more whites set up with fertilizer though, they usually use a double frame design for the extra units, how do these compare to the push units on kinzes or all in back like the John deeres?
I'm not familiar with the white seed units but I've heard they are good, I like the finger pick ups because you can easily inspect and replace all the parts. I've never had a problem with one which seems pretty good for a 20+ year old planter and no moniter.
I would welcome any opinions.
Thanks

Five years ago I traded my Kinze planter in for a White stack-fold with the 8000 series units. I am very pleased with the White. I think you will be relieved to not have to go to the trouble and expense of maintaining the fingers. The only thing I do is replace the tickle brushes (they knock off any doubles and are inexpensive) every 1500 acres. When I put the planter away each spring I take the seed plates off, make sure the air cut-off brushes are clean and put the original meter covers on to keep rodents out of box. This takes about 5 minutes per row. I do not have to use talc or graphite any more which was critical to the longevity of the fingers on the Kinze. I know Kinze sells more planters than White and they are a good planter but, personally, I would never consider a finger pick up (or a vacuum) planter after experiencing the simplicity of the White.

Does white use different kinds of seed meters or do they just have one kind?

We have a White 8531 that has close to 15,000 acres on it, works very well for us , Plants 16 X 30" corn or 31 X 15" beans , Takes about 1 hr labour max to switch from corn to beans or vica versa. Had a twin frame kinze 12 prior to the White , It was a good planter also , have found the White to be a little more accurate and quite a bit less maintainance.
If I was choosing today I would go with another white.
Our 8531 has individual row hoppers and we switched from 2 bus to 3 bus 2 seasons ago , I would reccomend the larger hopper if you cover many acres. Our kinze was set up with Dry fert which was good but was fairly high maintainance , we built a liquid cart that we pull behind , it holds enough starter and UAN for 150 acres and works good.

What kind of meter do White planters use? Would the meters on the 6606 above be the same as a new model?
