From Ernest M., Northwest Georgia:

"We purchased an 8-foot grain drill. We loved it so much, we traded it for a 10-foot grain drill.We love it even more!"

From Randy S., Northeast Indiana:

"Turbo-Chisel worked great in hard ground. It sized dirt clods well for one pass in the spring."

"Nice drill. Well-built."

From Brad S., Northeast Ohio:

"Nice drill. Well-built."

From Ed B., Southwest Indiana:

"We recently bought a Turbo-Max and can not wait to get it in the field and show it off!"

From David W., Western Missouri:

"I bought a new Turbo-Till a few years back, which I liked very much. It was traded in on the Turbo-Max, which I love."

From Jacen J., Southern Oregon:

"Both products I bought are great. Had a few problems with bearings on the disk harrow, but I received great product support, warranty, and I was up and going in a timely manner. I will definitely buy Great Plains again."

From Reggie R., Western Ohio:

"Pulls very well while leaving a very level job behind the chisel. The machine is holding up very well."

From Andy P., Central Michigan:

"Works great for seeding small pastures."

"...built well & seed depth is perfect." | 1006NT Drill

From Michael S., Northwest Washington:

"Just purchased this 1006NT drill a couple months ago. I am drilling orchard grass into a four year-old existing stand of alfalfa. This drill is built well and seed depth is perfect. I am using GPS as my guidance and rows are perfectly straight. Using this no-till drill saves me a lot of time and fuel reseeding fields."

From Ron K., Eastern Pennsylvania:

"WORKS GREAT! Used a Salford prior, but was not happy with the job it did. We rented a Turbo-Max for a trial comparison, and the Turbo-Max performed much better. It leveled the ground much better, it cut up the stalks much better, and we like to be able to angle the blades 6 degrees to close water ditches. We're very happy on our decision to buy the Turbo-Max!"

From Jimmie M., Eastern Virginia:

"WARNING! We're gonna brag just a little bit here on twin-row corn!

We just finished picking the best corn crop we’ve ever raised.

From Tony R., Northeast Georgia:

"Purchased a 1006NT. Love it so far. Does a great job."

"First time planter...beans shot right out of the ground!"

From Eustace W., Central Mississippi:

"First time planter...beans shot right out of the ground!"

From Allen P., Central Texas:

"This drill is a joy to plant with, and it is a wonderful piece of equipment. Thank you for this drill!"

Great Plains Ultra-Till®: "Unmatched productivity!"

From Geoff P., Southern Iowa:

"What a wonderful finishing tool! I don't think there is any other way to end up with a planting surface or seedbed this perfect. There is no better tool for putting in seeding, especially on HEL ground. We love this Ultra-Till. Speeds up to 12 mph, unmatched productivity.

"This photo (left) is prevented plant ground mowed down. Note the piles of weeds. It cut them off and spread them out evenly. There was wheat spread over the top before it was worked. Everything turned out great."

From Charlie K., Western Illinois:

"Our unit was purchased new in 1994. We put 10,000 acres on it through the fall of 2014. In this time, we lost field time by the failure of three bearings. We lost a total of just three hours downtime in 20 years. Our experience was such that we purchased another new unit, just like the original."

From David O., Northern Illinois:

"I think the Great Plains is the best planter on the market. I traded a John Deere 1770 planter for my Great Plains. No comparison, GP is better."
