Seed Hawk or Morris

I'm looking to switch up my C2 drill to a sectional control. I like the Morris as I am familiar with them and do believe it does a good with seed placement. The SH has some nice features that look good.

I was wondering what other farmers think would be a better choice between them.

Have demoed the SH and feel it leaves a smoother finish compared to my C2.

Thanks fo any tips.

I'm interested in your comment about the seed hawk leaving a smoother field finish than the Morris, is that with both a 12" spacing?

I'm wondering why you only demoed a seedhawk?
The new Quantum is no c2.

We have a 12Ē spaced seed hawk, and the field finish isnít smooth thatís for sure but we got the neighbour to seed a couple 1/4ís with his C2 and you can barely drive a pickup across the field with shaking your fillings out.

Both drills were 12" spacing with the twin wing on the SH and 4" spread on the C2. When we drove over the SH acres with the sprayer it felt smoother.

Never got a chance to demo the Quantum but did see some fields it seeded and it looked like it had nicer finish then my C2.

I like the Morris drill, I've been happy with my C2 but wish I had sectional control. The sectional control on the SH looks like a better idea then the Morris IMO.

I find it hard to believe that the field finish from a c2 to a quantum would be any different, I think they use the same opener and press wheel. I think the arm on the press wheel is different but doubt that would have any impact on field finish.

I can't comment on the SC on either beyond the fact that on the Morris its a fail on system, on the Seedhawk its not.

Ask my neighbor about his Seedhawk strips and why he had to reseed 4 quarters of canola last year.
All the while bragging how this new Seedhawk is going to pay for itself with the reduced canola seeding rate over his old Max II drill.
Fail safe ON would be an excellent idea IMO.
