I spent some time today looking over our IH 800 planter in the shed to see what it may need to get ready for the field. It got me thinking, what do you Case guys who row crop farm run for a planter? Just curious since other than a few Case planters still running, there's not necessarily a lot of brand loyalty in planters for a Case guy. I guess I'm also curious because with the weather this cold and wet I've got nothing better to do. We've always had an IH planter here. Mostly because of the fact that they are simple and we've just stuck with what we know. So what do you guys like?

Deere 7200 12 row. Started out with a IH 58 plate type 6 RN. Must have used that IH 20 years. Then I junked the 58 and bought a used Deere 7000 6 RN. Now it's the 7200. I put a ton of acres through that old 58. Jim

I run an 8 row White 5100, I like it because its simple, cheap, and it plants like sewing machine, very few skips or doubles.

We use a New Idea toolbar with Kinze units. I like the simple design and reasonable parts. Don

I plant with a 385 Deutz-Allis Quad disc. Dad has a White 5100 for a back up. For the last 30+ years we have used an air planter of some sort. I think the early AC air planters were the best for spacing and general seed control. I have a 2-3 row one of those set up on a tool bar for sweet corn, pumpkins, and any other weird stuff.

It is a sea of green and blue planters everywhere nearby.

Our first planter was a Case 3 point that fit on the Vac eagle hitch, then a JD 4 row many years later. Then when I started to farm I bought my neighbors JD 7000 8 row, last july I bought my first Case 6 row 1220 planter . From plate to air what a change this will be. Jerry from Ohio

had kinze for about 15 years. had junk deer 12 row vac planter before that and a CASEih no-till drill. traded both for 2 kinze planters, 3000 6 row splitter for beans and a 3200 end fold 12 row for corn. this year I traded both for a new kinze 3600 12 row splitter (pivot fold). dealer sells both CASEih and kinze. they sell a lot more kinze than CASEih. and around here kinze out sells the green planters too!

Have been using JD 7100 and 970 for 30 yr now. Both have been updated and do a great job yet. Wish I could say the same about myself, lol. Rod.

Thought I was the only one using a 400 that long!! 6 row narrow with dry fert. Bought a used 8 row that had no wear a few years ago and put the like new units on mine. Put 160# fert. thru the planter and spread the rest. Hard to update to anything with dry fert. attachment nowadays.
