1910 stainless meter do they make a difference

I see a few manufacturers and my question is what are the advantages of having them over factory. And which ones work the best and has the best serviceability. Do they feed and meter better.

I changed one last year and it fed and metered the same as the deere ones did when they were new. The meter shutoffs are way nicer and won't stop working like the green ones. Biggest thing is they should be the last ones you ever buy if you want to keep the drill that long.

Like wet farmer said the meter cut-offs actually work. Will never have issues with rollers going in hard or not going in due to aluminum swelling up due to corrosion. We replaced one meter and all attaching pieces last year and just finished doing the other two tanks. I liked the Luma Mfg parts since they are the same as the Deere meter housings and everything bolted up perfectly. We switched to stainless pipe as well so we should never have an issue with pipes not sealing due to rust or bubbling paint.

If you use fertilizer in the JD aluminium meter housing it will only be a few years before they start rotting. Even with careful cleaning before storage. And as others have said even before they corrode through the aluminium swells when it corrodes and the meter become a nightmare to remove. And dont even get me started with those frikkin half width disconnects grrrrr

I'm not thinking I would up grade as the 430 cart is a good size for my operation and it's ground drive. I'm not sure if upgrading to a cart with duals and hyd drive would be of any advantage and as far as sectional control how well does that work when a guy already fights with meters plugging off from dust build up or fert issues

Dont replace with stainless untill the factory aluminum ones corrode and swell enough that the meter rolls dont fit and cutoffs quit working
There is no performance gains to be had.

Keep calm and combine on....

I got the ones from Arborg Mb. Rofama machine shop. Went together very easily. Also got the pipes from them. Also saw the conveyor frame they are making to replace the Deere one that rots horribly,. I covet one!

You can add sectional control to the ground drive carts now. Just an FYI.

Someone told me $9k for the conveyor. Is that right?
