Had this sent to me today. Pretty neat to see. That tractor must have some power, last year they had 2 John Deeres hooked together pulling it.

Anyone tell me what the row spacing would be? How deep do you/they seed over there?

I've been there ones and asked the guys why not cut the trees down, he said fines would be severe, still nobody talked about "running" into them. such a waiste just cut the tree and replant 2 somewhere else

Sectional control would pay good on this unit.

What kind of power does that tractor have? I would imagine the cart fans run off engines or that would be a long way to pump hydraulic oil of any volume.

I wonder how even seed and fertilizer placement would be a lot of feet to supply, impressive to see.

It has a KTA 1150 Cummins @ 600 h.p, and an Allison auto. It weighs in at 70,000 lbs.

Here`s a close-up of the actual tractor in the O.P.`s video.
It operates on a property not far from here:

Row spacing is usually 15-20 inches in that area.
Planting depth anywhere from 2-6 inches below ground level, depending on how deep moisture is.
Normally single shoot with low rates of starter fertilizer. N is either pre-drilled or not used, depending on how newly developed the land is:
Here`s another one of their sowing rigs:

Pretty sure it is on 400 mm (16'inch) spacing and am pretty sure they have turned it up too somewhere around 800HP
