Had a IH 5100 end wheel drill. Worked great for what we were seeding at the time. Double disk needs the ground to be worked pretty good, then diamond harrow after and its good to go. Upgraded to a JD 9350 hoe drill, could seed into ground that wasnt worked as fine, saved a pass of tillage. Have heard the Case drills were not balanced as well and in soft conditions would become anchors quicker.
With our 5100 the fertilizer cogs had to come out every year and live in a pail of diesel or things would rust up very quickly. Would make sure everything in the fertilizer box on the drill moves and is not rusted solid.
