The Maury County Farmer's Co-Op in Columbia, TN rents a no-till planter. However, you need about a 5,000 horsepower tractor to pull it. My little Ford 2000 wouldn't be able to pull it across the parking lot.

WOW! I was lookin' for something a bit smaller to no-till 15 acres of long time hay field. Don't think my 72 HP Ford diesel would pull that either...hmmmm, maybe if I hooked my 8N in front to give some "real" HP? hehe
Guess I'll have to plow it in this year. Thanks.

Don't be scared off by those that say how hard a no-till planter pulls. All you are doing is opening a slit in the ground 1 inch wide and about 1 and 1/2 inches deep, then filling it back up for each row planted. How much power can that take?

The first time I planted any no-till back in the late sixties, the largest tractor I had was a Ford 860. There was talk of how hard a planter pulled and a four row unit required a sixty HP tractor. The 860 pulled it easily in fourth gear at 1500 RPMs at four+ MPH as that was the recomended speed.

I have a neighbor who uses a 4600 Ford with a six row no-til and leaves his 5000 sitting in the shed. Says he just likes the 4600 better.
