Dad and I used to run a 7000 with 36" corn and splitters in between. They were all on the back. 8 row 36 and 13 row 18".
Worked out well, but it was hard on the extra units as they would drag along when we were planting corn. We did have the drive disconnected but the row units were rolling the same as the planting ones.
When Dad retired, since I was buying everything at the auctioneer appraised pricing, I decided to switch it to 10 28" rows and planted corn that way going forward.
I bought a JD No till drill for the beans. Working full time and farming means that sometimes if the technology is there, it is fun to experiment with. I have most of the beans no till, but also plant some with the corn planter on 30" that I bought awhile back. It helps me see how the crop yields year after year on different tillage practices.
