How long have the Pro Series openers been out? I wonder what's they will be like after they have a lot of work. I had a demo of a 6m yesterday and can see why there is so much to maintain. I only saw one grease nipple.

It hair pinned a lot of chopped straw into the slit but otherwise I can see why you all love these drills.

Think a 6mm nipple fits from memory.

Agree on not mixing grease types did it once never again.

Not replaced a bearing on our 2014 drill put an M12 bolt on every seed tube reduced boot wear significantly and improved seed placement.

Louis are you using chads tubes for fert placement and how far are your shut offs from the fert tube? ie are you getting a lot of dribble lifting out of work?
No I’m using @Clive tubes, @parker has similar I believe. Have a non return just above the tube.
