our sunflower operation is 1st class. No one does it any better than we do.Dang, that's some nice equipment!
And to think I used to plant my plots with a weedeater and a hand-crank should-bag seeder!
My stock broker will laugh every time that I buy another tractor.At least I'm FINALLY up to a real tractor and tiller. But I'm still at the receiver-hitch mounted spin spreader for seed, fertilizer and pelletized lime. And a drag chain harrow for covering seed.
No joke. Heck, I’m 37, in great shape, and it’s still a headache changing from one piece of equipment to another. Luckily, we are moving to a no till system and selling most all our equipment. We’ll just have a no till drill and a crop crimper. Getting rid of most all our equipment: tiller, discs, plows, cultipacker and spreaders.You said a mouthful there. I hate having to switch back and forth between bushhog and tiller. Not a job one person can do and I'm usually trying to do it alone. Why can't 3-point hitches be easier?

Have one, but too afraid to ty it. Do they really work? Especially for implements like tillers that are under a lot of strain?
Actually, let me clarify my statement. For planting primarily clover-based plots, a cultipacker is virtually essential. Nothing improves germination of clovers like being pressed down into a firm seed bed, which is what a cultipacker is designed to do. However, I plant no primarily clover plots, and soil compaction is my biggest soil problem. When I use clover in my mixes, I chain-harrow in the big seed (which lightly packs the surface soil) and then spread my clover seed on top of that (overseeding a bit to compensate for lower germination rates).The last thing I need is to repack the soil I've worked so hard to unpack!
