From Timothy F., Eastern Texas:

"I used it first time for fall planting of oats. I had some problems initially, but with the help of my dealer and your representative for our area, the problems were resolved. For my first time, I thought I had an above average stand of oats."

Jeremy T. | 2N-3010 Drill | " of the best decisions."

From Jeremy T., Southwest Missouri:

"We decided to purchase a new drill for 2016. We were not pleased with our 1590 John Deere no-tilling wheat into cornstalks. I knew we had to do something different, so we decided on the 2N-3010 Drill. I must say, the purchase of this drill was one of the best decisions I have made. The coulters cut through the residue and lightly till ahead of the openers."

From Tim S., Northwest Ohio:

"I have a Turbo-Max, a Turbo-Chisel, and a Great Plains Drill. I am getting ready to buy a Disc-O-Vator. I'm happy with every toy I have!"

Dan G. | Great Plains Ag 1006NT Drill

From Dan G., Western Alabama:

"This is the best way to plant for hunting. This drill has revolutionized being a gamekeeper. This drill is the most efficient way to plant. I love it!"
