I am wondering if a 900 case IH corn planter will work as good as a 7000 john deere planter. for no tilling corn in.

We've got a homebuilt 15" IH 800 bean planter and a JD 7200 12 row for corn but our next corn planter will be a Case IH 1200. We've put alot of attachments on our Deere to no-till at the same level that the IH will with no attachments. I've use the 800 planters to no-till into just about any condition I can think of from heavy corn stalks and hard, dry sod to standing water in terrace channels and over the widest variety of conditions the IH planter units seem to work better than the Deere's. The Deere planter's will work for no-till but in our conditions it seems like they need to be customized for the conditions much more than the IH units do. For planting corn I would take a finger pickup meter over the Cyclo meter but overall I'd take the red planter.

I guess odd man out on this one but I had 7000 12 row went to the IH 900 series horizontal rear fold unit. I would never go back to the Deere units. When last used i always finished planting the neighbors seed that would not empty out of those planters. The seed bounce all that talk usually solved simply by slowing down. All of them do way better at 4mph then the 6 and 8 everybody wants to do. I put the Kinze planters together with all the different coulters trash wheels,Plastic seed firmers etc etc etc. If I were still doing it today I would still find a 900 series Ih planter.I quit row crops few yeras back and went to hay cropping instead. This year looks like the ground that I was still doing in bean rotation will simply rent out. High rent is payng more than I can net raising soybeans. Things sure change

Farmers buy what works. Especially over several decades. By sheer numbers, the 7000 and it's successive models have revolutionized how farmers put seed into the ground. IH adopted a great idea (invented by a MN farmer) with the seed drum, but the singulation and seed placement of the 7000 row unit is hard to beat. Everyone else copied some 7000 ideas- what does that say about the planter? White had a good idea with the splitter on the guage wheels, but that feature is available for any 7000 with after-market suppliers. The 7000 has a sturdy frame that no-til attachments can be added to.

Owned an IH air planter for 20 years. A 400 for 6 years and an 800 for 14 years. The worked OK for light no-tilling with no extra attachments. About 6 years ago I bought a new Kinze with coulters and row cleaners. I like the Kinze planter much better. Had a lot of trouble with seed bounce with the air planter. Seed spacing and depth were inconsistent. Would diffenent not go back to an air planter. Vacum planters are also better than air planters.

About the only green (that shade anyhow) thing I own is a JD 7000. Gooooood planters.

However, for no-till, the 900 & above are really popular. The 7000 is built a little light for all the extras one needs to add. Your 900 has some good no-till features.
