I do not think that Deere ever made a bad drill.Like you said it is alot like the 8000 series and I bet that many parts are the same.Drills are a simple piece of equipment that rarely cause any problems.We have owned an FB,FBB,B and now an 8300. All were great and trouble free.You should consider double disc openers as they work better in the higher amounts of trash that we have today.

By DD working better do you mean "go through trash without plugging" or "sow seeds more consistently" than SD? The reason I ask is I always wondered how 2 disks could cut through trash better than 1 disk?? Having worked for a JD dealer that sold more single disk grain drills than DD grain drills I fully aware of how "trash gets lodged between the single disk & boot scraper" especially as disk & brg gets worn.

I was refering to going thru trash without plugging.We planted alot of fall grain after corn harvest and stalks could find lots of places to lodge on the single disc boot and scrapper.And if you ever lost a scrapper you were done untill it was fixed.The single disc worked fine where we plowed but not near as nice in stalks.
