The big difference is that I can add sectional control onto a old pull type sprayer for only a few thousand dollars. I won't deny that air carts will get there but its going to take a lot longer. I have a Bourgualt 6700 and to get a BG 7700 with sectional the cost will be measured in not thousands but hundreds of thousands in price difference.

We have square fields and have been sectional nh3 for years. 3% is easy to hit and even at only that sectional on the drill is going to make half the drill payments. Do the math and it'll surprise you. IMO its a no brainer if you're slated for a new drill any ways.

Guys around here have been buying the sectional manifolds and retrofitting it after but maybe their cart's were "ready" for it.

Yah in Bourgualt world you can retrofit a 7000 series not a 6000 series. I think it would cost me $250,000 to trade to a 7700, I would gain some toys & gadgets but overall almost the same tank. As this point sectional would be the only reason to switch, still a big pill to swallow.

You can cash them out with no trade for less then that.

I traded our 2013 1890 with 430 cart for a 2013 1890 with 550 cart that could be upgraded to section control. Only reason I traded was to be able to get section control. It's cheap when you add up all the seed you save. I figure the section control will always have some value will never be zero but every extra seed I place is ground is gone in a crop season wether it grows and produces or not.
BG cec toom control looks like a nightmare. Deeres is very simple and have had zero issues.
I saved over 10% on fields last year. My opinion is you pu for section control wether you have it or you don't.

How can CNH afford it?!

Took in the runway secession of the new Blue/Red/Grey dress club last week,
Pretty simple to add sectional control, simply make the cheque 22,000$'s bigger, that's it.
No mechanical or electronic changes on the cart.
Bet that unlock costs them nearly a dollar to do!

Basically each feed cup is run by its own individual electric motor. You adjust rate by changing speed of motor. Section control is accomplished by stopping and starting section control. Also has index seeding for going around curves if I'm not mistaken. No extra hardware for section control just the $22,000 unlock code for it to work.
