The only insight I have is Dutch rollpins are better than BTT bolts

We've never salvaged a roll pin. Because why would you. Big pin punch, hammer out, hammer on. 2 minutes and done

How are you getting the bolts out? Torch? I know last time I changed tips there was nothing to grab on to and I used the plasma to blast them out. Roll pin sounds pretty slick to me. How many acres did you get out of the tips you’re replacing?

We switched ours to Dutch. Way nicer to change the next time. Talk to Dutch rep, they usually have a discount when your switch from BG TT to Dutch.

Dutch tips have a bevel on them. Would this make them push more soil to the side and less into the air? Possibly faster seeding speed, but more smearing on the side of the trench in sticky clay from the wedge like action of the carbide?

Dutch was also cheaper when we priced both out

we are going to try to drill the heads off the bolts and see if that works but so far i just broke the tip right off if it was worn out enough and than took the bolts out.

I’d stay away from Dutch - they may make some decent shovels - but there is no support there beyond the sale... and if there is, it’s still your problem ...
