Question deere 4 row 7200

Just bought a very clean 4-36" 7200 planter for dove/deer/turkey foodplots this week.....op manual says it will convert to 6-30" rows...…..I don't think so without a major overhaul of rockshafts.....has anybody tried going to 30" with this planter and succeeded ? Was hoping to be on 30"s and using guidance then if necessary I could plow middles of sunflowers with my 8 row 30" cultivator

Have seen a few 8-36s to 10-30s. Hafta add a bit to make them 12 row. Maybe the 4 row was a bit wider... A guy around me used to do alot of them. Sadly he past this last winter. I plant a few food plots and sweet corn patches with a 4-36. Had a 6row cultivator in the weeds and made it 4-36. Seemed easier then converting the planter.

Do you have the proper manual? I looked at some 7200 planters a few years ago. Some had rockshafts and others had individual wheel modules and a lift cylinder at each wheel. The ones with a wheel module would be easy to convert, just slide them along the main frame. The ones with a rockshaft could be done but it's a lot harder to take the gauge wheel off. If you are handy with a torch and welder then you can move the wheel mounts on the rockshaft. Do you have dry fertilizer? I think there is a difference in how the augers are driven in 4 vs 6 row.
