I bought my Kinze 3500 8/16 in 2010. Put Niemeyer shoes on and wasn’t able to do what I wanted to do; I wanted higher starter fertilizer rates. I saw the G2 system advertised in a magazine and liked the set-up.
The G2 is very cost effective for me because I also plant soybeans with this planter. It allows me to run a 2×2 at the rates I want (15 gallon of 28). The Mohawk closing wheels work well in my heavier soil.
Last, the tech support has been the best part. When you call with a question you can actually talk to the owner. If you’re looking for versatility on your planter at a reasonable price, I recommend checking into Schaffert products.
