Contemplating a change. Been using a planter running JD7000 row units in 20” rows with brush meters for beans. Also have a 8-30 that gets some beans in and plants corn. All no till, quite a bit into standing rye. Running either row cleaners or coulters, and either furrow cruiser or Mohawk closing wheels.

Have a mfwd 7800 Deere with 3 remotes (and I suppose have the loader joystick that would technically add 3 more)

See a White 8523 not far away. What are the good and bad of these? Meters fairly accurate? This particular one is a 12/23.

Second unrelated question. Also need to upgrade my drill. Have a Great Plains that scatters parts at almost the same rate as it does seed. I see a CIH 5400 wi5 radial bean meters. Can other meters be fitted that would let me plant wheat, rye, Sudan or other cover crops?

The White positive air pressure meter is as accurate as you can get seed size and seed plate size to match. We can plant 99.8% singulation, or 88% depending on seed size and seed plate options.

Sometimes it's hard to get graded seed anymore.
