what would you spec on a new 750A ?

On a 6m pro-series opener.

narrow gauge wheels?
spoked guage wheels,
Urethane tyres?
Urethane firming wheels?
Following harrow?
Electronic metering?

has wear on the seed boot bushing holes been eliminated by using pin rather than bolt?

any other input appreciated?

I thought spoked gauge wheels are standard on pro series openers. Personally I’d always spec a following Harrow, you don’t have to use it all the time if you don’t need it. Flag pin on pro series boot is meant to reduce wear, I can see that it’s very probably true. Again I’d also always have electric metering, if you’re used to mechanical metering you’ll need to learn to ignore the sticker on the hopper an follow the on screen instructions for calibrating.

Pro series openers spoked gunge wheels, narrow for avoiding corn stalks? Tank cameras guttler wheels avadex/pellet hopper.
Always fancied replacing the transport wheels with tracks for a larger off row foot print.?
