    Default JD 7100 Max-Emerge 2 row planter

    I have seen several discussions here at TBN about JD 71 two row planters used for gardens and small food plots. In fact, based on the rave reviews of other TBNers, I bought one, and it is the bomb. I planted 3 acres of corn this spring, and it is far superior to the older style planter that I previously owned.

    I was looking on ebay today and saw a two row planter made with JD Max-Emerge planter units. That is the first time I have seen a small planter made from those type units. That would be the the most up to date planting technology, i.e., no till, fingers not plates, etc. I would think that one of those would be nice to have. Have any of you guys seen a two row planter made with the Max-Emerge units or have knowledge of such a planter?

    I saw an add in a farm magazine this past winter for one. It was a reconditioned planter prepared and sold by a dealer in Kentucky. They sold for $1800 in conventional form and $2400 as a no-till planter. That included fertilizer units. With all the options and aftermarket parts available for the 7000 series MaxEmerge planters, it would no doubt be a great machine. Just pricey for gardening. I'll dig around and see if I still have the magazine. If so, I'll forward any info on the dealer.
    There are three kinds of men;
    1.) The ones that learn by reading
    2.) The few who learn by observation
    3.) The rest of them have to pee on the electric fence for themselves.

    No plans on buying one, just looking. I have a Deere #71 unit planter 2-row, and only use it nowdays to plant 1/4 to 1/2 acre sweet corn patch.
