Hey all,

Well, I committed to buying it. The info I've gotten so far leads me to believe that they were introduced in 1968 and replaced by the 8350 in 1974. I wonder what upgrades they made when going to the 8350.

I'm buying a manual for it right away and may get some of these questions answered in it. It's actually got two rows of disks at 12 inches apart to make it a 24-6. I assume with the disks staggered, it should clear trash better than my B. Am I right? Has anyone had any experience with the Bromegrass attachment? Is it Brome only, or will it seed any grasses you'd want to seed? i want to be able to experiment with various mixes of cover crops and like the flexibility of having the big main hopper and the two hoppers - front and back - for more accurate metering of seed.

I won't be getting it until summer. The 6 hour drive across Iowa on hwy 20 is best experienced after the memory of the last trip sort of fades...

The staggered disks are suppose to handle trash better than the disk in a straight line. The smaller box is designed for use with any small seed.
