Subject: John Deere 7000 planter


Kentucky
Have a friend that is interested in a John Deere 7000 planter. I told him if I remember correctly the 7000 was either a wide or narrow row and the 7000 Conservation could be adjusted from wide to narrow without problems. Is that correct?
Thanks,
Daryl in KY

Yes, you are correct.

Straight 7000 is good for 36-38-40 inch rows or 28-30-32 inch rows, with out cutting and welding.

Conservation model has everything bolted on the bar.

Four and 6 row are harder to adjust between the wide and narrow ranges because of the welded wheel frame. But with it adjust the units move on the bare like the bigger planters. Everthing is bolted to the bar with U-Bolts on 6 row wide and 8 row narrow and wider. Including the lift wheels.

Wide row and narrow row planters are two different planters, you can't convert a wide row 7000 to a narrow row without some serious modification, you are asking about 4 and 6 row, right..

The difference between a standard 7000 and a conservation 7000 is the conservation has a 7x7 tube and the standard is 5x7 tube..

We've got 2 4row wide 7000 and a 6row narrow 7000. Im not sure you could convert them with out really doing some engineering.

Sure can be done, its not all that hard. Cost me $300 at the welding shop to narrow a 4 row wide. I posted pictures and can again of the results. It would have been handiest to have acquired a 6 row narrow or once I owned the 4 row wide a 6 row narrow wheel frame, but because of their propensity to break the salvage yards had none. The wheel frame apparently isn't quite strong enough to carry a full load of fertilizer too.

narrowed planter

Cut the wheel bars off the plates on the tube, flame cut some new plates, welded them to the
tube, then welded the wheel bars back on (with the wheels off so the assembly could sit flat on the shop floor.

Moved the inner units in before narrowing the wheel frame, the outer units afterwards. Drilled a new hole in the hex drive shaft and moved the sprocket and ratchet in line with the wheels and planted after I built the colter assemblies and mounted them to inject 32% from my 3 point sprayer.

6 row wide is built like 8 row narrow with the bolt on wheel units. 6 row narrow is built kind of like 4 row wide and narrow with the wheel frame, but 6 row narrow has four wheels on the ground, 4 row has two. You do have to change the wheel frame spacing to change from wide to narrow. I've done that, picture in my post to turdypointbuck. I'm sure about these points, I have the op manuals and parts books and I learned every detail. I wanted narrow, after a year of searching a four row wide came along at a price I was willing to pay, then I added Kinze bean units, Dawn trash whippers and liquid fertilizer coulters and it no tilled just fine.
