    I think he is going to use this one here on the farm. I am encouraging him to rework a few more to sell in the spring planting season. Ken Sweet

    Greg said he still had to find a set of 4 sensors that go on the planter to monitor the seed flow from the tractor cab. Anyone know where there may be a good deal on those? Ken Sweet
