KV triple k springtine drill?


I’ve got a really nice KV spring tine, I think it’s a TLD or something with levelling paddles, 5 rows of triple k tines, following harrows and a removable crumble roller on the back.
I’ve been using it to incorporate seed that we’ve spread on with the fert spreader with some fairly good results and it’s got me thinking about mounting a hopper on the front and using it as a drill. I think I’ve seen @Bob lincs has made something similar in the past.
Just wondering if it would be worth doing or not?

My mate did just this with a Guttler Supermax spring tine . Heavier duty tines than a triple K. SH front hopper , kv ts seed boots , rest from Weaving. Works brilliantly
