Without modifying the tongue the splitters have to go on the back. The tongue is too short for turns even if you cut part of the unit off where the insecticide boxes go. You could build a tongue with an opening for the middle unit like a Kinze. I have a 6 row and put splitter units on the back. Works great - like a used $15,000 to $20,000 Kinze, but these cost $2500 to $5000 at auctions. It does have a negative tongue weight. Puts all of the weight on the 4 lift wheels. This is the second one I built and never have had problems with the lift (rockshaft tube, wheel bearings, rims, tires, etc). I probably don't bounce it across rough ground too fast, but I wouldn't any planter. I have CSR ground from 45 to 85. On the 45 to 75 CSR ground I know I get better yields in 15" rows verse 30" no-till or worked ground with 10" rows drilled. Some soils just have a hard time getting beans to cover all of the ground in 30" rows expecially since more and more bean varieties are more upright. 15" rows do it on the poorer soils. Secondly, a corn planter puts the beans in so they come up immediately. I drilled beans for years, both no-till and tilled. Sometimes took a rain. That is why I like the splitter 1) narrow rows, 2) come up immediately, and 3) nothing better than a planter for no-till.
