I don’t think it needs any other badge on it. It’s got the capability to completely knock this type of drill market into touch and take over because it really is that good.
From the pictures I’ve seen it, which is a lot it looks very good but for any earlier drilling looks too high disturbance and like it would lose a lot of moisture.

Remove the owners Twitter from him and this drill would sell well, don’t think he takes criticism to well and blocks people for no good reason. Not really the way to push sales. Sure when you have one of his drills he is at the other end of the phone.

Depends how you set it.

How was the mustard dealt with, and was it still green when drilling? Toying with the idea that I could grow some vetch and radish overwinter then sow barley straight in the following spring.

Topped some of it and rolled a bit. Then glyphosated it all. Sewage cake was applied and then drilled.

The mustard bit that was rolled looks the worst at the moment.
 
Pics 1-4 November sown wheat into a catch cover crop planted in sept. Pointless though so won’t be bothering with that again.

Pucs 5-6 March sown into flooded over winter stubble. Not the nicest soil and it’ll be rolled this week.

Looks good. What’s your alternative to the catch crop? Drill direct in to stubble in November?

It was the first time trying a catch so I just won’t bother again. A totally pointless exercise in my view. To be honest I’m becoming more sceptical about cover crops in an arable rotation full stop. I think it’s just the latest fad.
So will you drill earlier or just leave as stubble?
 
Same field. Drilled same day. It had been ploughed and pressed twice because it had come out of maize (mycotoxins) and had sewage cake applied.

That looks good. Is there anything it can’t go into? Long stubble if it’s wet in the autumn all okay?

I haven't tried long stubbles to be honest as we bale the straw mostly. The pic above of stubble was in fact chopped but it was only circa a 1t/ac crop of straw in 2020 harvest. I did however drill through a few swaths that weren't baled but they were big swaths. It won't be any different to other tine drills I don't suppose and is certainly no different to our Sprinter in that respect.
