7000 planter questions

I'm headed to a consignment auction in a couple of days. Looking at JD 7000 planters and they have a few. I'm not too worried about plate or plateless, although would one be better for milo than another?

My real question is that one of the planters is advertised as a 7000 no-till. Is it the same as a regular unit with coulters on it? Can coulters be added to any 7000 to make it work as a no-till? I would have assumed that the no-till version would have a different model number. That's what makes me think that they have just added coulters to a plain old 7000.

Plan on $159 per hole to put kinze coulters with13 wave wheels on a standard 7000. Another 10 bucks per for the large down pressure springs. Expect to pay north of 2000 for a 4Row wide model They have gone up 100% in the last 7 years.

IIRC the true conservation 7000s (most desirable for no-till) had a 7" x 7" main frame, whereas the lighter models had a thinner frame, either 4" or 5" x 7".

The heavy duty notill version was called a conservation planter. And was marked "conservation" on the hitch panels.

There was a version of he 7000 that has a heavier frame, and the wheels are clamped onto the frame, not the welded rock shaft.

These are easy to change the row spacing, as in from 38 inch to 30 inch....

Perhaps that is what it is?

Virtually all the 7000's you see in our area of Kansas are the plate style because they work so well for milo, especially at the low rates we use (less than 5 lbs/acre).

If you wind up with a plateless, the Kinze brush meters work well for milo and should be a direct swap with the finger pick up corn meters.

Check the wear points where the lift axle pivots.

Check the rest of the planter. Besides coulters, heavier down pressure springs, different closing wheels, and other parts could have been added to make it perform better in no-till conditions.
