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.
