Re: upgrading nt drills

For seeding cover crops, seems to me that your money is already spent in the right place. If you have other needs such as beans or wheat, I would recommend the crustbuster. It's a very heavy drill that goes in the ground with very little hairpinning on corn stubble. Seed metering is accurate as I've ever seen out of a drill. I upgraded from a 1590 JD to an all plant crustbuster last year. It is a world of difference, but has a high price to come with it. I'm not knocking JD, it just wasn't heavy enough to cut stalks or go 2" deep consistantly in hard ground. For cover crop, I'd just put down a little extra seed with the drill you already own. My 2 cents...
