Spring of 2011 we installed Precision Planting hydraulic drives on Kinze 3600 planter. Ran them for 2 seasons so far and they have worked out great for us. We are controlling them with AL Integra. Cost was ~$2300 for hydraulic motor kit (from Precision Planting) and ~$1200 for hydraulic seed control module (from Ag Leader). This does not include the cost of cabling (ie - implement cables or power cables) to connect to Integra. We made the hydraulic lines ourselves ( supplied by local hardware store - not sure what that cost was).
Our local Ag Leader dealer (also a Precision Planter dealer) recommended we use Precision Planting drives as oppose to Rawson (which he is also a dealer of). I can't comment on Rawson drives (pros or cons). We simply took the advice of our dealer and have been very happy so far with the Precision Planting drives.
