My neighbor also told me that I should go double disk, but I'm not sure I NEED it. This is a single disk drill. It will be replacing an 8 foot model B single disk drill. I didn't think the single disk on the B was too bad for plugging, unless the trash was extremely heavy.
I use a drill a lot for seeding cover crops and don't necessarily make a nice, smooth, soft seedbed since it will just get plowed down anyway. Most of the time, I hit it once with a disk and drill, or not even disk at all. The B does fine. I'm only considering replacement because the B is 8 feet wide and clutch lift. This one is 12 feet, hydraulic lift and probably 3 times the hopper capacity.

do you have any personal experience with the FB-Cs?

NO. I don't remember in the 21+ yrs of JD dealership employment of ever personally seeing the FB-C drill model. I'm familiar with the models B,FB,FB-A,FB-B & the 8000 series drills. I don't like the 8000 series drills with the adjustable boots for single disk openers. If the scrapers are good on the 8300 I think it would serve your needs as good or better than the model B
