    Default John Deere 7000 2-Row and Row Cultivator (advice)

    Hey guys,

    Been doing some looking around, and think I've settled in for a John Deere 7000 2-row planter setup on 26", with a liquid fertilizer system and then also a row cultivator setup the same.

    All of this is refurbished and custom built by a guy in Illinois, total package for both including shipping is $2,800 -- does that seem reasonable for all of this?

    Ill be using this with a John Deere 3520 to grow about an acre of sweet corn.

    Well, got the planter.. had to do some work on it -- welded some plate to drop the 3 point hitch attachment points down about 6"; my tractor wouldn't raise the planter off of the ground far enough when it's level -- making a turn would run the closing wheels into the ground or drag.

    Still had some issues with it planting, even after trying to adjust the down pressure springs and run a full tank of water for weight on the toolbar -- but, all in all I suppose we will see how well it works in a few weeks once the corn starts to show.

    Here are some pictures.
