Just traded our drills on a couple NH disc drills, after looking at any disc drill I could find NH won out. Anyone run one last year? Good bad the ugly? haha. Going from a Deere 1890 Disc and a NH 2050 Hoe.

Yes Don. I should have added that, good chance red is more popular than blue. One thing we did was go back to mechanical drive carts. We had a lot of grief with the electric drive. Just with connections vibrating loose, alternator going etc..... Did more seeding last year with a 10 year old JD disc drill than the new NH. But the job behind the disc drill spoke for itself from start to finish last year, which was first test for us with a disc drill.

No one on here has bought and or ran one? oh oh, I will be on my own for tech support lol!
Bought one, haven't ran it yet. We can learn together.:)

There is a few in the area now after some good demo's last year. Hopefully enough units to stock some parts locally.;)

Land lord ran one in red last year, him and I both thought it was a vast improvement over the SDX, even with all the bells and wishtles including the remote control auger the tech end was very reliable this time around, always seemed to be something with the SDX

A spiked closing wheel is probably a must. I don't think the rubber ones will be that good
Where are you from?

I talked to the NH seeding specialist and he felt that for my conditions(and most of Western Canada) the wheel would be fine. There is a spacer as well if needed. He did suggest that in dry clay soils that it would struggle with closing the furrow. He also suggested trying a few different closing wheels and I plan to do that.;)

We have a few stones and I don't think a spiked closing wheel would last me long, the closing wheel was one of the reasons I went blue instead of green, I didn't like the JD system in our conditions and thought the NH looked like it would do better and with less moving parts. We do one pass with a disc or deep tiller in the fall so seed into loose soil in spring and a bit sandier so shouldn't have trouble closing the furrow I don't think. What other wheels were you thinking of trying SW?

Not too many disc drills in this area yet so I am sure there are a few people that will be watching already. I'm gonna hold off on the field day but will surely post some pictures....hopefully some good ones.;)
