Maybe I just need bigger seed and fertilizer boxes, and then shift up a couple gears? I drive way faster cutting hay than planting and I can't cover ground that quick.
with a four row old JD 71 you can cover some ground in a hurry for just a deer plot --- 15 acres and mebbe you need to look at those gears a lil closer there is more than one there and I guarantee if you had your ground worked ---conventionally and ready to go I can cover a measly 15 acres in 50 minutes for a deer plot -- not my problem you cant.. I could give you some lessons
Sounds like you're the one that needs a lesson. Seeing as how you're in the habit of making some pretty wild claims I thought I'd ask a friend of mine about this. He's been farming about 1400 acres of corn and beans for 35 years and his Dad did it for over 50 years before him. He says with a 16 row planter at 5-6 mph he can do about 20 acres an hour. When I told him you said you could do 15 acres in an hour with a 4 row he laughed and said you're flat out lying.
In case you missed it, would you like to respond to this?
P.S. I know who you are..............sparky! :lol:
