Takes a lot of room for a unit, will you be able to turn the tractor if you get units in front of the planter? Hum. Going to be out there a ways, your hitch isn't as long as the 12 row planters and such built to have units swung or hanging up there. But I don't know, just hum about it.
Everyone says the bean meters are better, that would be a good move.
Lot of folk grow top notch beans on 30 inch rows, back in the 80s everyone went to 15 inch or drilled around here; now I see about 1/2 the land planted to 30 inch beans again, worked out better for a lot of people. And this is big time corn & bean farmers, going for top profits....
I happen to plant at 15 inch, but I ghot a plat planter with 15 rows all set up for beans for $250 some years ago while my corn is still 38 inches.
In fact, your planter probably isn't set up at all for you, why don't I offer to take that junk off your hands, I'll make you a deal........ ;)
