Banditfarmer I have a Moore which is the name of the company that builds them. What do you want to know as I have had one for 8-10 yrs now. They aren"t the best in cornstalksbut once you get the coulters adjusted for depth and the planter level it works ok. Adjust planting pop. like the book says and it is accurate. It pulls hard I 1st used a 1800 fwd gas and needed the fwd on all the time now I pull with a 2-105 and still is a handful on some of the hills we have. Ask away and I"ll do my best to help not many using that drill but 25 yrs ago it was consider the best no-till made. Frank Packard

Thanks Frank, Here we go. First witch side of the no-till coulters do you pop the cap off to tighten the bearings up? There are a couple that are a little loose and need tightened. Have you ever to take them apart to regrease them and or the press wheels? In the book it says to keep the seed shoe adjusted close and keep in proper adjustment, Put it dose not say how to do it and at what distance it should be up and down or to the side. THIS BOOK IS KINDA VAUGE! I understand how to level it out on the tractor and how to adjust the depth, But what depth should I be looking for in no-till beans? Like I said this is all new to me and it will be into corn stocks, Corn was in 20" rows so the stacks are small and will be bush hogged after feritaliser is applied and had a packer run over it. The no-till coulters are 17 7/8" and there only 18" new so I think this will help out some in planting with it. My 1550 diesel pulls 4x16s 7 or 8" deep in my ground so I am going to give it a try, I have a bigger tractor I could use but I like to plant with the Oliver (I guess its an Oliver thing!). Oh one more thing how damp do you want the ground to be to no-till with this drill? I assume if I could work it, It could be planted or not? Any help will be greatly appreciated. Bandit

I feel your pain Bandit. I'm going through the same thing with a Bush Hog drill we just got (yeah I know it's an "orphan annie"). Most of these "newer" manuals leave a lot to be desired, just look at a manual from something back in the 50's or so and you will see how much better written they were.

I have been useing a neighbor's great plains drill the last couple years so have a bit of understanding of no-til drill function. Your seeding depth will be the same wether using your corn planter for beans or the drill, usually I go 1.5 to 2 inches deep. I would plan on adding weight to the drill to get it to go in and stay in, the gp drill needed 1000 lb. added and could have used more when it got dry (harder). I tried the bush hog the other day, in last years bean field by the shop, and added 600-650 lbs. and the wheels still came off the ground!! Need to get more weights. The only thing I would say different from conventional planting (tilled ground) is to up your seeding rate a bit - 10% or so. I never had a problem with cutting through old corn stalks with the GP drill and don't expect to with the Bush Hog drill either (30" rows 32,000-36,000 pop.) but we rotary cut stalks usually right after harvest so they have winter to break down some. I use an IH 85hp to pull the GP and BH drills (both 10ft.) and though it's not overworked sometimes it would be nice to have a little more power on the slopes. I would try your oliver with an empty drill dry run test before switching tractors.
