Banditfarmer is right on this one. The 8300 drills with the "Tru-Vee" attachment were a 16x10 drill. They were only available in 10" spacing. Mike

I'm curious how you know the drill in question is a Tru-vee instead of one of these options from Earl T's original post???



I guess the farmers in N. Texas were too poor as I've never personally seen Tru-vee disk openers on a grain drill.

Jim, I suppose I do not know 100% for sure. When Earl mentioned his drill had gauge wheels and press wheels like BF I assumed it was a Tru-Vee drill. Perhaps I presumed too soon. These drills were very popular in the late 70's and early 80's in this area to plant soybeans. They mimicked the 7000 planter depth system and worked fairly well. They only came in 10" spacing to allow clearance for the depth gauge wheels. Conventional depth bands and press wheels, while not unheard of, were not common, at least in this area. Mike

Hey guys I posted a picture of the drill setup in the implement photos under 8300 drill. I have never been around one that has had these options on it. I will mainly be using it for wheat and some soybeans. The thing that makes this a little bit of a decision is that road travel is difficult with the wheels to the outside. So just seeing if you guys think the options this one has outweights the cons of the width. Just to place myself I am in northern Indiana.

Earl I looked at the photo and its a tru-vee set up and is a 16x10" rows. Now if you are moving it on the road alot or going through small gates then the 8200 is the drill you need. The 8300 holds about 36 bu and with its set up will plant beans with the best of them. But its like I said before its not the best for wheat. If it was me I would stay with the 8200 just for the fact that you are planting both wheat and beans. Bandit

Sometimes it's better to be "lucky" because as the photo shows you were right. I guess this gets back to the old saying "a photo is worth a 1000 words". The only thing drills were used for in my neck of the woods was to plant small grains or Sudan so therefore no Tru-vees were ever sold here.
