"...maintenance is very easy..." | 3S-3000 Drill

From Cameron L., South Dakota:

"The maintenance is very easy to do on my Great Plains Drill. This means more time with it in the ground and less with it in the shop."

" 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."

"...finest grain drill I have ever used." | Great Plains Ag 3S-3000 Drill

From Matt S., Eastern Idaho:

"I've tried many different brands and types of drills before purchasing my 3S-3000 four years ago. After 13,000 acres of malt barley planted, I can say it is the finest grain drill I have ever used. I'm a Great Plains customer for life because of this machine."

"...invaluable around the farm." | Great Plains 1006NT Drill

From Ian P., Western New York:

"We rent the drill out to farmers in the area and have had a number of positive reactions. Farmers who are starting to understand the benefits of no-till have been very happy with the results. The machine is easy to set up and invaluable around the farm!"

From Austin A., Eastern Indiana:

"We have used a Great Plains 1006NT No-Till Drill, and couldn't be more pleased with the results of how the fields turn out. We will definitely only be purchasing and using Great Plains equipment. Within the next few years, we will be purchasing a Great Plains Disk from the results our neighbor has with theirs. Thank you for your time and thank you for the great products you make."

Harald B. | Great Plains YP-1225A Planter

From Harald B., Manitoba:

Harald B. sent us this planter photo from Canada!

From Greg B., Southwest Montana:

"We recently purchased a drill and have had the Disc-O-Vator for a couple of seasons. Overall, very pleased with the way the products are built with some minor exceptions. Both have performed very well in our conditions and, with the addition of a coil packer, have produced excellent stands of barley, and alfalfa. We outfitted the drill with a liquid fertilizer system and love how easy it is to transport."

"Great products." | Great Plains YP-2425 Planter

From Jamie K., North Dakota:

"Definitely not just some shortline equipment builder. Great products. My twin-row planter has made it possible for me to plant wheat and seed soybeans between the rows."

From Jens B., Manitoba:

"The planter has been great for corn and soybeans."

From John G., Central Alabama:

"Great piece of equipment. It was ready to work straight out of the box. Required little to no adjustments. We planted 150 acres the first week it arrived."

From Timothy F., Eastern Texas:

"I used it for the 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."
