Reverse Parts Rant.

The other day I had two disc bearings fail on my P2080 drill, happened at night and probably within a few rounds of eachother. I had bought a couple of spare bearings when I bought the drill 4.5 years ago so I switched them out next morning. Before calling the dealer I phoned the bearing store and they informed me I had a "pretty special" bearing there, and I had better phone the dealer. Now I am not surprised a farm equipment mfr would have something proprietary on their drill, but there are 96 on mine!

It's a double-wide bearing, made in Slovakia, about 25,000 acres on it so far(60' unit). So called for price from the dealer for the bearing.....$39! I honestly expected higher, although $39 isn't free by any stretch. Dealer had some in stock and ordered a complete set which I will change when I do discs this summer.

So credit to New Holland and Mazergroup for not bending me over, both parties have supported this unit very well from day 1. It is the best drill I have owned by a country mile for accuracy and durability.

Have to win once in a while on parts.

Asked the local NH dealer about a demo of their disk drill knowing you like yours and the response I got was a blank look and you could see the squirrel in the cage was asking himself “we have a disk drill”?????

I won't say there is a ton of them out, but there are a few blue ones locally. Gonna be dealer specific as to what they push.

7.5" is borderline not heavy enough in hard ground or zero till. This year I put some peas into wheat stubble and headlands were a challenge where dry and hard, interior of field worked great. I need to add some weight to the rear of wings, right now no weight added. Not sure how double shoot would change this?



I have a partial review of my closing wheels, will try to find where that was discussed and update there.

No need for sectional control here on 99% of the acres. The second receiver is for Trueguide which is a Trimble program that steers the tractor to keep the implement on-line. Both receivers are running RTK and I am putting one track of my tramlines down with each seeder pass. Seeder 60', sprayer 120'. Basically eliminates crop damage from late season applications. The disc drill does pull really straight to start with though.
