    I have those exact units now and have decided to go the route of the new precision units.

    Got fresh rubber in while i was on vacation this past week. My buddy already got em mounted and back on the planter. Waiting on other parts to get here the next week, though new meters are back ordered and wont get here for a few more weeks. Pretty excited.

    This is a great thread with lots of info. I used to run a JD 1240 back in the day for plots. I have toyed with the idea of also getting a 7000 unit, but want to cut it down and make it into a 3pt -4 row unit. Easier to move around and get on a trailer for travel purpose.

    They are incredibly handy for smaller fields too. Super fast to turn around. I run a 4 row 7100 on 3 point. As you mentioned also trailerable which is a must for some people.

    Got seed firmer kits installed the other day. They should help keep consistent depth and emerging plants.

    Updated pics of some of the new parts. Had to order a couple press wheels. After those get installed she will be field ready.
