Subject: 7000 JOHN DEERE PLANTER


south alabama
I HAVE A 4 ROW JOHN DEERE 7000 PLATE PLANTER THAT IS SET UP TO PLANT PEANUTS. I NEED TO CHANGE THIS PLANTER OVER TO PLANT CORN AND BEANS. I DON'T REALLY KNOW WHAT I NEED. THE JD DEALER HERE TOLD ME THAT I NEED A CORN SEED ATTACHMENT OR (ALSO CALLED) A CORN PLATE BOTTOM FOR CORN AND SOY BEANS.THE JD DEALER ISN'T VERY HELPFUL. THEY DON'T HAVE THE SEED PLATES FOR THIS SERIES PLANTER.(TOO OLD ) TOLD ME TO GOOGLE FOR A SUPPLIER FOR THE PLATES AND THE PARTS I NEED..

That's covered in the operator's manual and the parts catalog. I have a finger unit 7000 4 row and though the plate type is in those books, I've never seen one.

A few years ago Albert Lea Seedhouse (www.alseed.com) said they could supply planter plates in their catalog. I have a new catalog and didn't notice that this year, but then I wasn't looking either.

You can convert it to finger. About any plate you need is available on ebay.

You can either convert it to a finger pickup, or ask your seed dealer for a set of plates. When we used to run a plate planter they always supplied the plates with the seed. However, I would recommend changing it over to a finger pickup if thats an option, they are much more accurate

Bill,

Most likely the reason the dealer isn't too helpful is he knows that when he tells you what Mother Deere wants to convert your planter if it is even available from Deere may give you heart failure.  It's bad publicity for customers to have a heart attack at the parts counter.

It can be done.  Someone with more experience can tell you exactly what you will need, but my understanding is you will need come up with boxes, meters and meter drives.  I suspect by the time you are done it would be just as well to leave the plate planter set up for peanuts and buy a used plateless planter.  I'm not sure how long it has been since 7000's were made, but if it were a car I suspect it would qualify for antique plates in Illinois.

Let's look through the AgTalk classifieds just as an example.  There are regional trader publications and TractorHouse to look at as well, but this is a quick and easy example.

I realize it is probably a long ways from where you are, but there is a 4 row 38" 7000 listed for $1500 (see http://agtalkplus.com/?q=node/27505)

Dave ... oh man I wish I hadn't seen this ... Dave at Rochester, Illinois has a 12 row Case 900 horizontal fold for $2500 (http://agtalkplus.com/?q=node/27402) That is my favorite planter if it just could get the seed in the ground space anywhere close to evenly.

On the other hand Dan in Iowa is parting out a 7000 plateless (http://agtalkplus.com/?q=node/27311) and might have just what you need!

I purchased some used row units several years ago for $50 each to convert a 7000 plate planter.
The units were in good condition.
That is the easiest way to convert to plateless.
