A conservation jd 7000 is kinda rare in 4 row, it has everything bolted to the main beam and you can slide it together easily to 30 inch.

A normal 7000 4 row has a rock shaft with set wheel spacing, you have to do some torch and welding to move the wheels in.

Then, the markers are a bit too long, you likely have to set them for the front wheel to follow, instead of the center of the tractor.

Short answer, others have done it and will have better answers.

I made the mistake of not getting a 7000 to use. Narrow row versions of the 7000 can be had for 750 dollars a row around me (northeast Missouri). A 7000 is light years ahead of a 494 Deere or 540 Oliver.

And it might be light years ahead but the 494A is a better planter than the 7000. The only thing is they did not make a plateless yet at that time.

The 1240 was made several years ahead of the 7000 and was plateless. You can have a 494A and I'll still prefer a 7000. I wish Coonie Minnie was around as he had a good story about the 7000 and his relatives. In short it took a lot of convincing to get his older relatives interested in making a change from older equipment and practices to something new. Shortly after the 7000 came out one of his uncles drove past a neighboring field that had been planted by a 7000. His uncles had a new 7000 for the following spring.

Yea, the 7000 is about as good a planter as there is. The improvements since are to handle bigger, faster, more acres more seed.

There are lots of attachments to add or modify a 7000 into whatever a person wants for their situation. They arenít the perfect notill planter, but they work great out of the box and can easily be modified to do anything else special you want on a small or medium size patch of dirt.

Gerald J is the one who posted some pics here I think, and over on the big Ag site, of modifying his 38 inch to a 30 inch planter. I thought I posted a link here yesterday, maybe I dreamed that or maybe the moderators donít like being compared tot he other site....

Iíll try posting Geraldís pics, but of late pic posting doesnt always work right for me either......

Looks like that worked. So he had the straps coming up from the wheels cut off of the round pipe, and moved over and collars welded back on the pipe at the right spacing.
