Drill as a shallow cultivator

And I guess swapping to min disturbance points like some are fitting on here would mean it could move very little soil as well if required? Would 200hp be enough on a 6m all the time or would you need 250hp? Thinking about sowing beans at depth and then also when it's running as a 6m cultivator effectively with wider points perhaps.
We have narrow low disturbance points for bean drilling and should probably start using them for all drilling to minimse blackgrass flushing at drilling.Our JD 8345 ( 330 HP I think ? ) is well on top of our 10m most of the time.

I guess that's the downside to this kind of drill if your farming with black grass but then carrying multiple drills isn't cost efficient where as one machine and multiple sets of points probably is.
