Customer Testimonials

"...works great!" | Great Plains 1500 Drill

From Nick J., British Columbia, Canada:

"Our new 1500 Drill finishing up before a good rain. Our first piece of Great Plains equipment and it works great! Also have a CPH15 Coulter Cart for it, used for overseeding grass. The results have been impressive."

"Great Plains all the way!" | Great Plains 1500 Drill

From Gerald R. , North Carolina:

"I absolutely love this drill. I have had other brands in the past, and this one is so much better than all of the others. Never buying another brand drill. Great Plains all the way!"

"Performance & reliability have surpassed our needs..."

From Greg W., Southern Illinois:

"Since the '50s, my father had always used a 10-foot John Deere Van Brunt grain drill when planting his 160-acre farm. When he retired and my brother and I took over winter wheat planting operations, we needed to upgrade our equipment. Great Plains had the right drill for the right price. We chose the 15-foot 1500 Grain Drill. Its performance and reliability have surpassed our needs, and we are looking at upgrading our seedbed equipment with Great Plains."

From Sage E., Northeast Oregon:

"I bought my no-till drill to plant winter wheat into vetch refuse. I envisioned using it on about 100 acres a year, but I've been running that drill over our 1000 acres! Plus, the neighbors are having me seed some of their ground...now I'm in the market for a bigger drill."

From Lanny D., Northwest Illinois:

"Just got this drill this spring. It worked good for seeding filter strips. Planning on drilling soybeans this spring. Should work good with Keeton seed firmers on each row."

"I loved using this drill."

From Terry O., North Texas:

"I loved using this drill. It was very accurate, and I didn't have any extra or too much seed left after the work was done. I let a neighbor use it, and he was more than pleased with the stand of alfalfa he had."
