    7100 drill

    Hey guys I hope all is well, I just got my new to me JD7100 6 row planter home and I am in the process of get it disassembled and cleaned up and refurbished to turn it into a 3 row food plot planter. I had a couple questions that I hope someone can help me on. I am curious if I can turn this into a drag type instead of a 3 point pickup for ease of dragging it through the roads to get where I am going. How would I go about building a carrier. Also since I am going on 3 rows will 1 drive wheel be enough or do I need 2. Is in the middle of hoppers good for a drive unit or is on one end better that the middles. Anyway thanks in advance.

    It takes very little to spin the meters, one would do it. I would think the middle would be better to drive from, if you are keeping the rate gear box that will play into your decision. With 3 rows consider where they will be if your going to cultivate it with the same tractor because if one row is in the middle of the tractor your cultivator will need to be shifted off center or your planter will need to be.

    What about adding a center link, hitch and wheels to something like this? This was a web image capture, and unfortunately the link to was broken.


    Several options come up with a google search for 3 point hitch caddy, but unfortunately they are for BIG implements, not something that will weight a few hundred pounds.

    Hey thanks for the reply, I am going to keep the gear box that came on it so I can adjust population. I know the plate style is not as accurate as the later offerings, but as this will only see food plot action I think the accuracy is fine as long as I can get parts to rebuild it and get it working right. I think I understand your cultivator comment but I am going to build a cultivator out of a 6 row deere cultivator I got and will build it to fit the rows accordingly. Thanks

    Thanks for the reply as well. That's kind of what I had in mind, I have a mast from an old forklift and I was going to cut a section out that would give me the proper lift height and weld a tongue and an axle on it and weld the 3 point hitch point onto the mast and use my rear SCV valve to raise and lower the hydraulic cylinder on the mast that in turn would raise the planter. If that makes sense? LOL I have almost talked myself into just going with the 3 point and not rethink the wheel here.

    Does anyone know where I can find parts for the plate style boxes, or maybe a junkyard that would have the parts I could buy. Also if anyone has an old 7000 that has the cylinders and lift/drive I would like to buy those as well. Any help is appreciated

    The 7100 is not a plate style planter. Starting with the 7000 they had finger style meters that are very accurate. They were the first generation on the high speed planters, high speed be relative today but they will plant great in stock form up to 5-6mph.


    I have used both of these for parts.

    Would a disc mower caddy work? Its for attaching a disc mower (3ph hitch) to your drawbar.

    I went today and started tearing the planter down to confirm what I had. My hoppers have a Plate in them that is red and has maybe 30 teeth, The drive coupler spins the disc, which I assume, the seed drops in and it then goes down the tube. So I am curious now if I have a short run unit based on a 7100. The serial number plate is clearly marked P7100.
