    Thumbs up John Deere 7000 w/ Liquid Fertilizer and Row Cultivator

    Hey guys,

    Been doing some looking around, and think I've settled in for a John Deere 7000 2-row planter setup on 26", with a liquid fertilizer system and then also a row cultivator setup the same.

    All of this is refurbished and custom built by a guy in Illinois, total package for both including shipping is $2,800 -- does that seem reasonable for all of this?

    Well, that would all depend on the condition and what comes with the planter. I bought my JD 71 2 row for 800 and it came with about 10 different plates for different seeds and rates.

    Do you have a picture of the unit?

    I believe he is about 16 miles south-east of Bloomington. He seems like a stand-up guy; has items on ebay. Said he just built a new shop, and from the sounds of it he has tons of experience upgrading, repairing, and restoring these rigs.

    I'm not sure what other plates the planter will come with; but it's not the model 71, it's the 7000 unit -- which from his description is a bit more complex than the 71 with the transmission, but it also has more advantages and accuracy than the 71.

    Alright, thats the guy down by LeRoy. I have a neighbor 1/2 mile from me that builds them too.. He mostly does 8-12 row spiltter planters. Takes a 8 row 30" and rebuilds them to 15 row 15". He does build a few 2 and 3 row 3pts every year but kinda a by order only.

    I have no clue on the prices, but i would look at the cost to repair these items if its more complex than the 71. The 71 is still being made today by Yetter and all parts are still available. They are simple to use and easy to fix. Thats why everyone likes them.

    71 Series Planter - Yetter Co

    After owning this one for a bit over a year, I can tell you that the best part about this planted is the amount of plates I have and the different items I can plant, from sorghum pumpkins, corn, soy beans, sunflowers, beets, ect. Without the flexibility, I would not use it as much.

    Well, got the planter.. had to do some work on it -- welded some plate to drop the 3 point hitch attachment points down about 6"; my tractor wouldn't raise the planter off of the ground far enough when it's level -- making a turn would run the closing wheels into the ground or drag.

    Still had some issues with it planting, even after trying to adjust the down pressure springs and run a full tank of water for weight on the toolbar -- but, all in all I suppose we will see how well it works in a few weeks once the corn starts to show.

    Here are some pictures.
