Default No Till Drill Refommendations

Hi. I am looking for some recommendations on a no till drill. Iím looking for something relatively compact. 6 or 7 foot or so. I have a 73 HP Kubota to run it. Does anyone have one they can recommend?

Really would like to get a run with one of these. Keep us posted on your work with it.

That's a nice machine.

I have been using a woods "one pass" ploter. It's really good for the price. Great for natives too.

Is this the type of Woods that you have?

I use a Landpride 6’ with the three seed boxes. Works well, and 73 hp is plenty. I usually plant with my JD 100 hp, but have used my 55 hp NH on occasion. It’s a little too heavy for the 55hp, and I have to put weight in the FEL. But as far as just pulling it, no problem.

The drill is easy to set and I’ve never had any problems with it.

I'm on the waiting list for a Landpride 606NT. Everyone I've talked to likes them. Now we will see if my Kubota dealer will actually get one any time soon.

I would love to have a no till drill to reduce the # of hours on the tractor! I just can't afford it at this point in time.

Tar River makes one that is affordable and dependable, they have 7 dealers in Texas. A 78" one is 7000.00.

I really would like to buy one.

I have a 6' Great Plains 606NT (same as land pride) that I pull with a 37 hp tractor and just added a 10' Genesis. The Genesis is a true no-till and is pretty sweet, although it takes at least a 100 hp tractor to operate it. If you have soft dirt the Great Plains or Land Pride are great drills, the Genesis is a step up for what I am doing with it.

Is your 606 a 3pt or pill behind?

Would anyone be interested in renting a no-till drill in Central Texas? If so, how much would you pay? I've been thinking about buying a no-till drill and then renting to off-set the costs. Thoughts?

Tar River gets good reviews for an economical model.

Pinkys in Farmersville had a used Midland Pasture Dream last time I checked for under $3000, needed a paint job but those are bullet proof. That is a 3 point unit.

I bought a 1006NT 2 years back and have loved it. Its a 10 ft vs the 6 ft you are looking for, but works exactly the same as a smaller unit. They aren't cheap, but true one pass planting with dual seedboxes. For comparison, I have a 85HP Kubota and it pulls it well.

Yes. My buddy lets me check it out Friday after work and I bring back anytime before Monday when they open.

WIN WIN!! Small town life

It maybe a 12 footer actually. Ill measure when I rent in a few weeks. It has a small seed box also

I plant plots for us, my uncle, and my buddy. So $50 split 3 ways is pennies on dollar

Heck you can save that just in seed cost ratio vs having to broadcast.

Ive been looking for one for a few years now. Plant a little deer plot but would like to be able to plant 40-60 acres a year in winter pasture for cows.

They are out there, just depends on what you want to spend and/or how mechanically inclined you are. My previous drill was a 50s model JD FBB that was old when I rescued it from a field. Spent a couple months in the evenings greasing, breaking frozen gears free and re-working the gearbox and it worked great for about 10 years. And it was free other than diesel to get it and grease.

Just saw on Marketplace for FB, that someone selling a No Till Pasture Dream in the Belton area for $2000

That is actually a great deal on a solid No Till.
