I said it was costly! I didn't buy one, wish I had one, but I can't afford one right now either.

I am no way getting paid or anything from this company, I am just giving the facts as to how well it performed under some of the roughest conditions. The picture with the tractor going right through the field is as accurate as their marketing picture and it is no hype, that thing can flat out till!!!

That is pretty crazy. Amazing picture!

Way expensive, but like you said, add the cost of everything separate, and it starts to make more sense.

It seems like it'd be best for someone starting out. We have everything we need now, so selling everything to buy one just seems like a lot of work.

I took some video on my phone as well, but I doubt I can send it to download it to youtube.

I would love to give that a try on my rocks (I mean "soil").

A disk won't even scratch my ground. It's a shallow chisel-plow or nothing.

I was thinking the same thing.

Would you recommend this machine to an incoming, fairly new plotter? As mentioned above, most plotters have most or all of the equipment they already need. Would this be worth the one large up front investment?

If it works as advertised, this would be perfect for people who live further away from their land and can't easily make it to the property very often. Omitting trips for mowing and then spraying could seem to easily justify the cost if you consider how much we regularly drop on diesel and gas.

If one could afford it, I would not hesitate one bit! Your reason would be perfect!

Would be great to get 3-5 of your neighbors to split the cost.

Shallow chisel plow with depth wheels, combined with Chemical burn down, is about as good as it gets on rocky ground.

But if you test one on rock, let me know!

I think this machine is a great option for someone kinda wanting an all in one, but without necessarily having to use chemicals. No-till drills are great, but I know some are strongly against (they themselves) using chemicals, and I can understand that.
