Anyone have experience with JD1780 16/31 planter? Would you do it again or go with a twin row ?

Does anyone have experience with a JD 1780 16/31 planter for beans? Would you do it again or go with a Great Plains 12/23 or JD 1790 12/23?

 Don't have any personal experience with the 1780, but have always been told they are a boat anchor in less than ideal conditions. Tires are in front of the toolbar which creates negative tongue weight unless you have fertilizer tanks on the front. They are also hard to work on due to no room between row units.  Patrick
