No I won't be hauling a half ton of seed. More like 30-50 pounds. I can probably plant most of my plots in 3 or 4 passes: cowpeas, oats, wheat, buckwheat, and grain sorghum and millet. If I use a planter, I figure I'll have over $100.00 just in plates. I want a drill, but it's certainly not mandatory.

With that much only it will not feed out unless you have someone riding on the drill to keep the feeds full. At that size you need a full bushel left in the box after you are done planting and then it would be close to having some of the feeds running empty. And I wonder if that is the correct model as have never heard of that, FB yes is a common model but the letter on the front throws a person off as to what it is.

I doubt you'll have a problem if that's as much seed as you're carrying. I'd just be worried with a full box if you had to deal with some steep grades.
