How much would a 10 foot JD VB grain drill with rubber tires weigh. It also has the fertilizer hopper on it.
Thanks, Richard

Not much. Consider the construction. The hoppers are sheet metal; volume yes, weight no. The rest is frame work, heavy, but not much volume.

I'd guess if you got to 1000# you'd be lucky. Mine is tongue heavy as the tires are in alignment with the hopper and everything else is resting on the tongue. Regardless I can pick up the tongue by hand and connect it to the draw bar. Guess tongue weight at not more than 75#.

I can put 6-50# bags of seed in it and my 30 hp Ford doesn't know anything is behind it.

Will vary depending on model. Single disk, double disk, deep furrow, press wheels, clutch or hydrolic lift and number of openers and that is the way they are measured, not by feet. Sounds like possibly a 17 opener model but then if it is a 7" spacing or an 8" spacing drill the 8" would be a foot and a half wider so be heavier. To many variables for even if book has weight to get an acurate weight.
