The straight 8300 is grain only and the 8350 should have a dry fertilizer box on it. The JD 8300 uses both front and rear boxes for seed. The 8350 uses one for fertilizer. The easy way to tell is if it has two rubber hoses on each opener.

It doesn't but there is a place for them behind the seed tube.... I guess I didn't look close enough when inspecting the inside to notice the 2 boxes.....I'll look again!

JDseller nailed it. Since bag fertilizer is so much higher than bulk I'd opt for the 8300 so it would hold more seed per ft of box.

Thanks to you, too, Jim. The 8350 is a 10 inch, the 8300 is a 8 inch model... was looking to replace my old 1600, 10", with a 8 or 7.5 ... IF I find one to my liking....
Ralph.

If you look closely in the rear box, you should be able to see a little bit of the "tractor wheels" that feed the fert. out. There should also be a gearbox on each rear corner of the drill, and some extra shafting, sprockets, and chain in front, but that's hard to identify. The divider between the boxes is removable, and can be installed in two positions- max. fert, or, max. seed.
I still use mine. In fact finished planting wheat Sep. 24 with it. But I am ready for bigger/newer. But I don't know what to do. I don't want another end wheel drill. And I don't need or want the monstrous JD no-till drill. I'd like something in between.

Another thing to look at when purchasing a grain drill is to determine if it's fluted feed which is easier to set seed rate or double-run which is a little more complicated to set seed rate but is more accurate with the seeding rate.

Didn't buy any of the ones at auction, neither 8300s or 8350s. Went cheap but still a bit more than what I wanted to pay... plus a shop converted truck to pintle grain trailer was still coming up for sale... I wanted it to haul manure and occasional driveway gravel (and got it)....
Thanks for the info, y'all!
