Sorry for posting this here but thought some of you might know where to find corn meters for a JD 7000. I have looked at ebay, craigslist, etc...but haven't found any corn meters. I did find old threads on qdma listing shoup equipment but their meters are $175 each.

I would like to find used finger pickup meters if possible for less cost. The finger pickup units on mine works well, but the housings are cracked from overtightening. Any ideas?

I also would love to add fertilizer to the unit if possible. What all would be needed? It looks like the gears are there but no boxes or coulters...

Thanks,
VHORN4

I would look on Tractor House or check with your local JD dealer. The parts guys are always awesome to work with and they can keep an eye out for you.

Also, there is a guy in MN that puts 2 row or 4 row units together. He has a ton of parts in stock. http://rdhoutdoors.com/

3rivers,

Thanks for the suggestion. It doesn't look like they have them available right now, but I'll keep watching... I'll also keep watching ebay for used ones... In the past, I have seen many of these sale for next to nothing, but I didn't need them then. I need corn meters, so the beans won't help me now.

Thanks,
VHORN

if you buy replacement parts they aren't that bad. 7.45 for a new housing if that is all you need.
