I use a two row Covington for 30 acres. Old design that has worked well for me for 30 years. Very simple and easy to maintain, parts readily avaiable and still manufactured in Georgia. Easy to adjust from about 20 inch rows to over 40. Should be able to find a decent used one for a reasonable price.

That must be a reagonial brand as the only place I have ever heard of them is on this site and I live in Ohio and they are not around here. Started with a JD 999, then a new JD 246, then Oliver 402, JD 494 and last a JD 494A. These planters spaned the 1906 to present time.

Could be right. I grew up on a Nebraska farm and never saw one. They have been made in Georgia since the early 30's, however, and were originally pulled by horses. VERY little change over the years and are still in use in many places. Bought mine used in early 80's, and it's planted between 15 and 40 acres for over 30 years. Now belongs to my son. It has fert. hoppers and adjustable from about 22 to 40 plus inches and can be used as a cultivator as well.
Of course, we are just part-timers and two row is fine with us.
