As much as I have heard, your already have the best tank on the market, I haved talked to lots of farmers and they all say the Flexi-coil is the cadillac. My neighbour has that JD tank and they always complain about how underbuilt it is.

Re: john deere 1830 drill & 1910 tank

I am curious why you want to trade the Bourgault for a JD. I think I may have sold our JD 1820 today and if so I am going to buy a 47 foot 5710. What did you think of the Bourgault that you now want to switch to the JD? Any problem areas I should look for on the 5710?

Re: john deere 1830 drill & 1910 tank

the only problem that we have had is shanks breaking.think that the new jd 1830 is a well built machine.our bourgault has done 5 crops about 25000 acres.

Well we ordered the 50' 1830 & the 430 1910. 10" spacing 4 rank 4" packers and the all run blockage. The 430 cart will have 710 tires and the 12" conveyor. Not sure if we will be able to get it for next spring i guess we will wait and see.

Do you custom seed?
Same Tractor?

Re: john deere 1830 drill & 1910 tank

We had the same setup you are looking at only a little smaller on both accounts. the 1830 is a great seeding tool. Ours was 10" spacing and the amount of trash it could go through without plugging up was impressive and yes it is a well built machine. As for the 1910 cart it's scary how accurate they are I don't think you can beat the air volume that fan produces and they are not under built.

I hear lots of people running Flexi-coils that can't get them set to be accurate. I am sure some will dispute this and thats fine but it's just the main complaint I hear from owners around here.

Consider the 1835 with SFP I am sold on mid row banding.

Re: john deere 1830 drill & 1910 tank

If anybody has problems with setting a flexicoil there is something wrong with how its being done. We have ran flexicoil since the late 80s first with a 1110, then traded to a 2320 in 93 and to a 2340 in 04. and they were accurate except i dont remember the 1110 anymore but the 230 bushel carts were down to the last fistfull. how much more accurate can you get. We bought the 2340 used and it has given us some wireing problems because the previous owner was a sloppy operator.
