5100 is pretty good. Deere has better parts and more people know how to repair and adjust. Deere also has many more aftearket upgrades available.

Deere white is harder to work on and the front fold is a plus  white vertical fold is pretty wide

I thought so a vertical 12 row white would be very wide I can't be any wider that 18 feet to get into some farms so u say white are easier to work on and maintain

On a 5100 to remove the seed disc  you have to remove both gauge and press wheels which includes the spring on the press wheel.  It takes four bolts to get the seed box off to get to the seed tube. The monitor on the one we had was a joke replaced many seed sensors yearly.  Traded to a jd7200 and thought we had a Cadillac.  Sense went to kinze .   Just my 2 cents

Good parts and bad,  It is a pivot planter like the way it works but can't help but wander when something is going to let go while folding, but there is many out there may just be paranoid. Basically a jd with a different tool bar.

On my 5100 it only takes one 3/8 bolt to remove the seed disk  less than 20 secounds.
