    Default Massey 33 drill, need your advice

    I can buy a massey 33 drill in good condition, a 10 foot 3 point hitch cultivator with roller baskets, and 10 foot packers . The price is reasonable. I want to use it on our 36 acres of land. We do only beans and corn on this land. I have a 30 HP kubota L2900 4wd tractor.

    My questions are;

    Can this drill also plant corn ?
    Can I still get parts for this drill?
    It is 15 or 17 rows, what is the row spacing? I would close of every other row for beans.

    Will my tractor pull the cultivator? The soil is medium clay, would there be any speed?

    Anything other ?

    Thanks, Bert

    I am sure the drill can plant corn. You just have to block off a few of the drop holes like you said with beans. The spacing of them would be roughly 6inches I think. For your tractor pulling the cultivator I think it is a little over sized for the hp of the tractor.
