Thank you. Im on 9" currently. I am using UN32 and Thi-sul. Just making the switch to liquid as I transition to no-till. Have previously been using NH3 mostly in fallow at July... we seed in end of August. Also playing around this year with a split app... I only applied 30N and 10S, I plan on using streamer nozzles on my sprayer and putting down an additional up to 30lbsN in the spring depending on the crop and winter I have.
Yes it is a gopro 2. Thanks for the input. I actually used the sideband this year, I was just testing a few of the outlaws, and I think I agree with you. The sideband isn't going as deep and so it doesnt pull as many rocks, also I think it slips through the soil better, but it is good to get another opinion on it.
I think this highlights soil types/conditions and sowing speed effects on openers.
In Australia which is where the Outlaw series was designed for, side band and paired row openers disturb to much soil and don't allow us to work at the speeds we want (10-11kph) where as the Outlaw works great for our soil types (I'm talking more the East Coast) and allows us to maintain minimum disturbance. I guess thats why Dutch have such a wide variety of choice!
Ya, I am thinking of trying the dutch spur, as it is only 1" wide. I like the idea of throwing less soil, and my drill is only 33' so I would like to travel faster as I am currently seeding at about 4.3mph. I would like to see 5-5.5mph. Much faster and the drill will break apart in my rocks. ; ]
I like the opener alot, just think it would benefit from the independent opener on hydraulic downforce for tripout to save carbide and opener in general. I broke the outlaw, but Dutch said they think it was a metal problem, and the metal was textured like it was cast so... im sure it was supposed to be steel. Plus I broke off the carbides from the seed boot. But my rocks are plentiful and after tripping on one, it is the rock it hits on the way back down that kills.
I was extremely impressed with the universal however in that it held up without breakage over 800 acres in rocks.
Im considering adding the active hydraulic down pressure system from Precision Planting called seeder force to my John Deere 1895 air seeder and was wondering if anyone has any experience with using it. I know there are two different types you can put on, one has an active cylinder and weigh pin...
Looking for a 60ft airdrill. Currently have a Flexicoil 5000 with tow behind cart. How are the wingback drills for transport and getting into field approaches? Would have a tow behind cart again on the newer drill. Do they flex as good as the 5000s in hilly ground?
I am curious if anyone has tried seeding peas using a John Deere 9350 box drill, the catch here being that my seed drill is a disc drill. I don't have a ton of experience with this drill and have planted only wheat with it so far. It seems that these disc drills have some difficulty placing the...
