Late 800's nearly the same as the 900. Update the rear press wheel assembly and you couldn't tell the difference. Dry is cheaper but more difficult to handle. I use a gravity wagon and side auger, but it is significant work to clean everything after planting. The planter has a fertilizer auger/distributor above the boxes, but only farm about fifty acres and it is such a pain to clean that we didn't use it after the first year. Just need to precisely maneuver the wagon and auger a couple of times during filling. Boxes need filled about every ten acres. If we farmed the acres currently cash rented to a local farmer, wouldn't hesitate to again use the overhead box auger. Thought about spraying everything with fluid film before using and see if the job become easier. For ten or so acres bags would work well, but for fifty you probably would lose the cost advantage. Liquid requires a tank, pump, and perhaps something to agitate the fertilizer if it sets too long. Tanks and pumps can occasionally be bought cheap at an auction. I've bought both pretty reasonable but have no intention of converting to liquid.
