  3. Smart, I ended up getting a 6m out of Les Carters yard in Lincolnshire,not as smart as that one but on its own transport wheels rather than a trailer.
    I think its brilliant.
    I also got another 3m with the grass seed boxes off e bay for £360 with good discs, what more do you want for that kind of money?

    You don't need haulage now you've got a fastrack

    They're in Yorkshire
    The smaller one is 4m
    Both of them are fit to go straight to work this spring
    You can get on very quickly with them
    The 6m will do 100ac / day into cultivated ground - a 100hp 2wd tractor would pull it (we used an international 956)

    I've put a couple more pictures on but difficult to get good ones as it's at the back of a shed

    Yes they both have disc coulters
    I have a heap of spares for them including small seed rollers
    I am only selling them as haven't used them for a while (though did put some beans in with the 4m last year) and I have too many drills on the farm all taking up room in the sheds
    One really handy feature of these drills is that you can shovel grain straight off the heap and load them with the loader bucket (because the box is so wide)
    Can't do this with an accord combination without spilling half the grain

    I have been asked about the cultivation requirements after ploughing for an mf30
    Really depends on land type
    Medium land and /or well weathered ploughing will work down enough with a triple k type cultivator
    Heavy ploughed land would need a power harrow
    This drill only has drilling discs and a following harrow - hence its so easy to pull

    One is 6m and the other 4m - they are at 6" spacing between the coulters ie not the very narrow spacing- I can count the number of coulters on each one if you are interested
