    Visit thebayougardener website. Donald has videos of him planting corn with both the Covington and Cole 12MX planter. You should watch the videos. One thing to remember about the cole 12 mx is you must empty the seed and fertilizer hoppers by hand as they are not removable.

    I have a few planters: Cole 12MX, JD 71 and a Webb Precision planter. I am happy with all of them.

    Is Covington having China build the Blue 12 MX now. I have a distributor trying to get me to sell them and I have not accepted his offer. How is the quality on these new MX planters? Ken Sweet

    I just paid $1K for a refurbished 2-row JD 71 Flexi-planter for bell beans, soybeans, peas. It's set up for the 3pt hitch on my Mahindra 5525. Weighs about 400 lb. Planting is scheduled for early Nov.

    I read the blue one was a Chinese knock off and the green one is made by Covington. All parts are suppose to be interchangeable.

    Here is a one row and a one row cultivator. The planter has 6 plates. I'm asking $250 for the pair ... they work great. I will load on your carrier.
