I saw the videos. I think we are gonna try to get everything worked the second time with all of the fertilizer and spray then we will be able to just go and plant when it is fit.

That sounds like a good plan. I would like to demo an 8rx.

We only use our disk in the spring on a field that we cannot do deep fall tillage on, and on fields that we plug up the field cultivator with stalks.

We just use the disc and drag in the spring and cultivator in the fall. I want something to replace the disc and drag, but are getting worn.

We need a new disc ripper. Our Deere 510 does a terrible job at leveling. A few weeks ago when we worked the ground we used it on in the fall it was the roughest ride in the tractor I have ever experienced. I never want to use that thing again.

I don't know why I says cultivator Haha I meant chisel in the fall. Yeah I hate when I put headlands with the disc going across the chisel ground. If you go with the grain, the chisel does a nice job with the rolling basket.

Yeah we will see. The seed corn dealer said the seed will be fine. Plus, if we have to replant it will be free.
