The problem is when the pillar is going thru harder ground or in the wheel tracks, the force pushes against the disc of going in the ground and will then push out the packing wheel. Simple math adding up the forces, there will be little to no force on the packer wheel, hence no packing.
From what i understand, Gen 3 has them independent. But, if it takes 600 lbs on the disc and 300 on the packer times 48, you now need at least at 50,000 lb or more drill. The math never lies.
